We offer a dynamic supply chain providing the public sector with a marketplace to buy and manage services. Those services turn in to projects that make a difference, and ultimately make the places we all call home, better places to live. We are always looking for people with diverse backgrounds who can join us. Hear from some of our customers about how what we do has helped them:
Since our journey began back in 2012, we have seen the business grow, change and evolve into the one we are proud of today.
Our colleague community is still growing, and we want you to be a part of it. We’re proud of our award nominations and wins. But that’s not what makes us, us. It is our family and community spirit – we all want to see each other succeed and thrive both professionally and personally, in an environment where colleagues are valued. As a result, we’ve introduced several benefits, flexible working, and we do fun things at work like charity fundraising – there’s even been a bit of pancake tossing!
Why should you consider us for your next role? Well there are a number of reasons – we are fast-growing which means you are always learning, we empower our teams, we work in an open culture of transparency, and we really want to make Bloom somewhere people enjoy working every day. And of course, we have fun along the way! But rather than us tell you why you should choose Bloom, we thought it would be best if we let the team tell you why they think Bloom would be the right place for you.
*Disclaimer – we sometimes run out of tea and coffee, so if that is a dealbreaker for you, you should probably walk away now…but please don’t judge!
You can take up to 25 days annual leave – plus the 8 bank holidays – and you can also buy up to 5 days, paid back over 12 months.
We want to reward all of us for our success, therefore every colleague is eligible for our bonus scheme.

Thousands of organisations, including Bloom, voluntarily choose to pay the real Living Wage because we believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay.
