Welcome to The Buro

We work with business, charities, organisations and governments worldwide through our base in the north of the UK. We are experts in a wide range of industries and bring specialisms from across our partner network to ensure you get advice, support, training and mentoring from the right team. Each professional has their own specific expertise and we work across the energy, financial services, life sciences and healthcare, manufacturing, government and public services, defence and security, telecommunications, transport and logistics markets. Our deep industry knowledge and our skills in consulting, technology and innovation allow our teams to challenge conventional thinking and overcome every obstacle to give you exceptional results. This is not something that ends with the initial case – we continue to share our knowledge to create real and lasting impact with our clients under service level agreements.

Our recent work includes:

  • working on the brand building of an early years charity in Ghana
  • developing the sales and marketing of a high growth manufacturing business with the Welsh Government
  • working with an insurance company to differentiate their products in the market place
  • developing a system to help a farm diversify and access untapped revenue
  • creating a business strategy for a new restaurant chain

A Specialist Team

We are a team of dedicated professionals. We’re careful when we partner up, not only do we just want only the best specialists working with the Buro, we also want them to be fantastic communicators, being on hand throughout the project to speak your language, talk directly about the work they’re doing and discuss this with you. This ensures the most successful project and that you’re kept informed at every stage.
