Allen Lane

Stand 3
Website: Allen Lane

Established in 2004 we want to use the experience gained recruiting senior finance/human resources professionals to offer a fresh and down to earth approach to recruitment. We base this on honest relationships, sound judgement and exceptional customer service.

Having seen some of the frustrations candidates and clients face, we saw an opportunity to move away from the methods adopted by large corporate recruitment brands. We wanted to provide a more personal service founded on transparency, flexibility and long-term objectives. Today, every member of the Allen Lane team shares this approach – we all view recruitment as a career and not a job.

Our success at Allen Lane is largely down to the recruitment and retention of some of the most established consultants in the recruitment market and we are proud to say that Allen Lane is a Fast Track 100 brand; having been acknowledged as one of the UK’s top 100 fastest growing businesses and as a Recruiter Fast 50 brand in 2012.

Since 2004 Allen Lane has developed a far-reaching influence and presence within the marketplace, but despite this significant growth in reputation and turnover, we continue to pride ourselves in offering a service more akin to a smaller ‘owner run’ business

Obillex

Stand 18B
Website: www.obillex.com

Obillex enables buyers in the public sector to support and energise their local economies while simultaneously generating extra funds to use for important front-line services.

Many small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) need extra cash, but SMEs face high charges from banks and invoice-financing companies which stifles local investment and economic growth.

With the Obillex solution, public sector organisations can drive down the cost of finance across their supply chains, quickly putting cash into the hands of SMEs, so these smaller firms can stay in business and thrive.  It’s a great example of how councils can support their local businesses in action.

When suppliers are expecting payments from public sector organisations, Obillex arranges for early payment, so they don’t need to wait 30 days or more, giving you, as the buyer a satisfied supplier, secure supply chain and reduces pressure on your Accounts Payable department.

Suppliers pay a very modest fee (£1.64 per £1000 invoice for being paid 20 days early) and there is no charge to you as a buyer but rather, the opportunity to generate an income through investing in your own supply chain and direct the money to protect jobs and front-line services.

Find out more about how Obillex can benefit you, by visiting our website at www.obillex.com or by contacting our Head of Buyer Sales on 07714 248079.

Public Sector PLC


Property and land are valuable assets for local authorities, but it can also be costly to run, maintain and develop.  For councils looking to undertake a property project in their locality, until recently there were only a few traditional options available to them.  However, there is another approach developed by PSP called ‘Relational Partnering’.

Through its unique and proven model, PSP provides resources, expertise and funding to public sector bodies to help them to unlock value within their assets.   Working with our partners, we deliver on a broad range of projects including land and property disposals, housing developments, regeneration schemes as well as retail and mixed use.
