Transmit Consulting is run by entrepreneurs who understand the challenges business owners face. The experience and expertise of the consultants at Transmit means that the businesses will be getting industry expert advice from relatable and passionate consultants. They will provide focused support to small and medium sized businesses who are looking to increase the current levels of employment within their business.
Damian Baetens, Business Support Director at Transmit Consulting, said:
“We continue to be impressed by the ambition of Northumberland businesses, and are delighted to have been entrusted with the delivery of this contract.
