About Bloom

As the leading marketplace for professional services, Bloom expertly connects Buyers and Suppliers across the UK’s public sector. Our approach seamlessly matches the requirements of both, meeting their exact requirements and chosen outcomes. 

Who we are

Since 2012, we have been revolutionising the procurement process across the UK’s public sector. We’ve built a large and versatile marketplace of professional service suppliers, creating lasting connections between small businesses and our public sector clients. Our experience empowers us to guide both clients and suppliers confidently throughout each phase of the procurement journey.

Through our unique approach, we provide a fully managed procurement solution that provides a swift, compliant, and cost-effective route to market. By emphasising outcomes, we set ourselves apart from traditional procurement methods. 

Our marketplace has grown to include thousands of UK suppliers, providing them with hassle-free opportunities to collaborate with the public sector. Since 2019, our combined efforts have generated £177 million in social value. We’re exceptionally proud that 71% of our projects are awarded to SMEs, providing impactful opportunities that would otherwise be inaccessible. This simultaneously nurtures local economies and enriches communities.

“Bloom helped us find suppliers in a rather niche market with the skills and expertise we required, which we would have otherwise found very difficult to source.”

Social Value & Sustainability

We understand our responsibility as we grow to build an ethical, unique and inspiring business. We align ourselves with the core issues and values that matter most to our stakeholders, ensuring that what we do fulfills the needs of current generations without compromising those of the future. 

Social Value was the beginning of our journey to sustainability. It remains an integral part of who we are, reaffirming our mission to make it easier for our public sector customers to deliver on their social value goals and objectives through our marketplace.
