Bell recently became a listed supplier on the Crown Commercial Service Communications Marketplace. This marks a new stage in our nearly fifty-year relationship with the public sector. During this time, Bell worked with ministerial and non-ministerial departments, central government agencies and local government, including spending twenty years as a preferred Central Government supplier (to 2010). We specialised in public sector branding, behavioural change campaigns and community and stakeholder engagement, although we also did our fair share of reports and white papers.

The Communications Marketplace enables UK government and public sector organisations to access a wide range of specialist marketing and communications services from agencies across the UK and overseas. Once registered as a buyer, the Marketplace provides opportunities to foment direct relationships with agencies and to find the right agencies and consultancies for each project through a smart filtering system.

Oliver Hunt, CEO of Bell, says:

“This is a new chapter for Bell. Now, it’s much easier for the government and the public service to access our experience and expertise. We’re really looking forward to this.”

Bell offers the following services listed on the Marketplace:

  • creative development
  • direct marketing
  • production
  • social marketing and emerging channels
  • campaign coordination
  • marketing and advertising technology advice
  • data science
  • marketing and communications strategy
  • marketing strategic advice and consultancy
  • internal communications and engagement
  • innovation and experience
