Skillfair's membership is constantly growing and includes individual consultants, business advisors, interim managers and freelancers - as well as larger companies and partnerships.

Some of our members offer general business advice and consultancy, whereas others provide very specialist technical skills, but both groups bring a wealth of industry experience and knowledge. To see if the kind of help you need is available just enter a keyword into our search page - if you want to contact a local consultant then try viewing our UK map of consultants to locate an advisor in your area.

Our members are generally very well-connected, so even if you can't find exactly the person you need through a search we'll be able to locate the right person by asking our membership. The quickest way to do this is to post a project and let the Skillfair network do the rest.



Different types of advice and consultancy require different qualifications and experience, so as you'd expect, our members have a wide variety of qualifications and accreditations. To help you select the right person or company for your needs we encourage consultants to load a full CV and details of their qualifications and experience.

We also run a quality-checking system to give you confidence that consultants take a professional approach - this includes taking up references. Each member's quality status is displayed on their profile - if you see against a consultant's name it means they've provided 2 referees as well as evidence of their professional standing.

If you're not sure what qualifications are important in your situation then please email us or call us on 02476 011446 - if we don't immediately know the answer we have plenty of advisors to call on who do!



If you need help with an aspect of your business then you need to get in touch with the right people quickly and without hassle.

Posting a project on Skillfair means you contact a wide range of consultants with  the right experience and qualifications as quickly as possible  - and you'll only get responses from people who are interested in helping you and available right away. Clients usually get enough response for a short list within 24 hours.

You're always in control of the process, and we provide tools to help you sift the responses and work down to a short list. Once you're ready  you decide who to contact directly, then set up an agreement with the best person and work can start.

Skillfair doesn't take commission, so we don't interfere in your conversations with the consultants, but if you need any support or advice, we're only a phone call away.

Consultant membership of Skillfair is £175 per year for one profile in one marketplace - each additional marketplace is an extra £25 (excluding VAT) and we don't take commission on any assignments placed through the site. Consultant membership includes;
  • Direct project and associate opportunity alerts
  • Full daily tender alert service, including low value tenders 
  • Access to any project or tender on the site
  • Search engine active profile linked to your own website
  • Acccess to our LinkedIn group
  • Profile on our Google based map of consultants
  • Ability to post projects of your own to find associates or form bid teams
  • Ability to advertise events, offers and other services to consultants

You don't have to pay straight away, just register for our free 3 month trial and then join on-line once you've had a chance to see how we work.
