We look for suppliers that share our values and goals evaluating them for best practices the reflect our own commitment to high standards. We value long term progressive relationships that bring efficiencies, innovation and mutual benefits. Once we are engaged, we offer consistent long term supply opportunities with fair payment terms.

Workforce support

We buy transport, fuel, equipment, consumables, goods & materials, accommodation, training, communications, welfare services, advertising and other support services for our workforce, so we need a strong and reliable supply chain.

Response time

Our business is fast moving, so we also need fast response form our suppliers and good back up strategies for when things don’t go to plan.

Local Presence

We have contracts where it’s important to us to buy local. You don’t have to match our national footprint, a strong regional supply network will work.


We want like minded suppliers. If you have strong policies to tackle Modern Slavery, EDI, Bribery and the Living Wage then we want to hear from you.


Over the last year we’ve bought a million litres of fuel, thousands of hotel stays and over a thousand training courses. Repeat business is available for suitable suppliers.


We’ll ask you to complete a detailed questionnaire and, for some categories, we will audit you. Once approved you can accept purchase orders from nominated staff.


Many of our suppliers are SMEs, we welcome that and we can work with the right suppliers to help you reach our standards to commence trading.


We believe in equality of opportunity and that impacts our supply chain as well as our people. We’re open for business with all sections of the community.

Product sourcing

To get approved you need to know where your products come from! It’s important to be able to map imported goods back to their source.
