A broker refers to a training/employability organisation/education establishment who may be willing to work with a contractor to help them meet their Buy Social requirements by connecting the contractor with New Entrant Trainees. The Buy Social Brokerage website has been created to help contractors who win public work find employability brokers who will assist them in delivering their Buy Social clause obligations.
A Guide for Contractors, which provides more information on Brokerage, is available to download from the resources section of this website. For more information please visit www.buysocialnibrokerage.org or alternatively email: firstname.lastname@example.org
