What we do

We can work with clients on a consultancy, project or interim basis. This may be a short term assignment to address under-performance of a sales function, leading a tender submission for new business or developing an employer engagement strategy to maximise the apprenticeship levy, to longer term strategic initiatives that help businesses develop new products and enter new markets.

We are highly flexible and work hard to understand your business, tailoring our support to meet your needs.

The aim of Apprentice Supermarket is to develop the self-belief, life skills, business skills and employability of unemployed young people.  By teaching the theory of business their aim is to support and help young people secure employment or progress to further education. Apprentice Supermarket engaged Think Straight Consulting to write an important funding application to help support disadvantaged young adults prepare for work. Mike was really flexible and helped us to see how our response should be structured to maximise the chances of success, before producing a high-quality document in a short timescale. We would happily work with Think Straight Consulting again moving forward. Andrew Kunman, CEO and Founder, Apprentice Supermarket CIC. CEO and Founder – Apprentice Supermarket
We have engaged Mike at Think Straight Consulting to support with a number of high profile bid submissions. As an external consultant, he fits in well with our internal teams adding value quickly. He is very diligent in his approach and produces work of a high standard. Bid Director, G4S Employment Support Services
We engaged Think Straight Consulting on two fronts; firstly to support our employer engagement activity prior to the launch of the Apprenticeship Levy and then to create a Professional Development Framework for our Sales Managers. They engaged very well with our business during a significant period of change, effectively supporting the corporate team in securing employer commitment and mobilising larger contract opportunities. Their approach was professional, diligent and the work produced was of a very high standard.
