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 believe not-for-profit organisations can achieve greater sustainability and impact by combining their knowledge of the needs of their beneficiaries with business thinking.
We also offer specialist services and advice on strategic planning; social investment and contract readiness; social impact and programme evaluation; data protection; mergers and partnerships; and good governance and board recruitment.
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’ve 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, social enterprises, housing providers and umbrella bodies – and organisations serving a wide variety of beneficiaries and cause areas.

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.
