Eastside Primetimers is a management consultancy with a difference. Working exclusively on behalf of not-for-profits, we provide professional support for CEOs and Boards who are seeking to transform their organisations to be fit for the future.
We are dedicated to supporting the growth of a strong social sector that has the capacity and resources to play an even greater role in delivering services in our communities. We promote a business-like approach because we think not-for-profits can achieve greater sustainability and impact by combining a business brain with a social conscience.
We offer services and advice on: social investment and contract readiness; social impact; mergers and acquisitions; partnerships and collaborations; good governance and board recruitment; and capacity building support.
Formed out of a merger of Eastside Consulting and Primetimers in 2013, we are structured as a social enterprise which is 50% owned by the Eastside Primetimers Foundation and 50% by some of our key managers. Through the Foundation we are able to support small charities and social enterprises.
We have a unique talent pool of more than 100 consultants who are carefully selected for their commercial know-how and their passion to make a difference. We call them our members because they are committed to supporting the not-for profit-sector either as consultants, interim managers or Board members. We also have a central team based in London.
We operate nationally, including regional teams in London, the East of England, the Midlands and the North West. We have also developed dedicated service teams in some of our key expertise areas such as social investment, mergers, social impact and support for leisure trusts.
Over the years we have worked with hundreds of clients spanning the range of the not-for-profit sector – including charities, socal enterprises, housing providers and umbrella bodies – and organisations serving a wide variety of beneficiaries and cause areas.
