Social Enterprises are cutting the cost of IT through effective comparison
SmartTendering.com has been helping social enterprises and NFP’s cut the cost of supporting their IT infrastructure by making in-depth and full comparisons easier and less time consuming. The free service enables you to view up to 10 full quotes – while keeping your details confidential and without you having to meet a single IT salesman.
Heather Wilkinson, Chair of Striding Out points out “Many of our Social Enterprises are between 5 and 20 staff, therefore the directors do not have the time or resources to conduct numerous sales meetings – resulting in many of them signing up with the first IT provider they meet”
Read on to find out how this service works.

Universities Fail To Support Graduates Into Job Market
Only 12.7% of UK graduates benefited from career coaching whilst at university, a Striding Out survey has revealed. Over three quarters of graduates (83.3%) said they would benefit from career coaching, despite the majority being either satisfied or very satisfied with their current work. Only 24.4% said they were unhappy with their job. “This shows that you don’t have to be unhappy in your job to benefit from career coaching,” said Ana Paula Nacif, career coach with Striding Out. “In fact, coaching can be instrumental in career development, ultimately benefiting both employees and employers.” She added: “With 10% of graduates struggling to find work*, universities need to make sure students receive all the support they need to get into the job market. It is a shame that over 87% of graduates are missing out on this crucial service.” Find out how career coaching had an impact on graduates and their career path.
