Description of the goods or services required
We're inviting proposals to provide communications services for Nesta.
Our Communications team aims to raise Nesta’s profile and engage new audiences with the work that we do. We work hard to embed Nesta’s purpose throughout our communications, stitching together our different activities to tell the Nesta story. We run a number of major campaigns each year including New Radicals and Predictions, host a packed events programme including our one-day festival FutureFest and publish a high volume and range of digital content on our channels.
We're inviting proposals from candidates for the provision of a range of communications services. Our aim is to have a small number of suppliers for each type of service on framework agreements. We're interested in working with suppliers of different sizes to meet the varying requirements of the range of jobs that we commission.
