Business management consultancy blooms with new office move in Gateshead
Bloom Procurement Services is aiming to expand with a move to larger office space in Gateshead.
The company has more than doubled its head count from 30 employees to nearly 70 in the past year. Originally based in Sunderland Software Centre, Bloom moved to Newcastle Quayside in 2017.
Following growth in the last year, has now relocated to new offices close to the Hilton Hotel at New Eden House, Gateshead.
Alongside a headcount increase, turnover for 2018/19 exceeded £170m and the company has set a turnover target of £250m for 2019/20.
Adam Jacobs, executive chairman at Bloom Procurement Services, said: “We chose to move to Eden House because it boasts a range of new work spaces and technology that will transform how we collaborate as a team both internally and externally.
“It is a fantastic location with great views across Newcastle and Gateshead and the iconic Sage and Baltic are on our doorstep. We wanted an environment that was designed as a celebration of our passion for innovation with meeting rooms named after famous North East innovators.”
Established in 2012, Bloom specialises in bringing together a community of buyers and suppliers to help the public sector buy and manage professional services. The company provides a full end-to-end marketplace solution for the procurement, contract management and payment of all consultancy and professional services.
The move to New Eden House comes just as Bloom celebrated its recent appointment as the delivery partner to the new NEPRO³ professional services procurement solution, on behalf of the North East Procurement Organisation (NEPO).
Adam added: “It’s a very exciting time at Bloom and the growth we are seeing reflects on the success of the NEPRO solution and the innovation and hard work of our teams. We are committed to the North East, as witnessed by our decision to relocate to new offices in the heart of Tyneside.
“Our mission is to assist public sector organisations to work with the very best suppliers and to create good quality jobs across the region.”
