How to join
You can sign up to the Marketplace via our header and build your profile by adding your business details and all required information. This includes your areas of expertise, maximum daily rates, case studies, references and supporting documentation. You will also be asked to accept the Master Agreement which will form the basis of any contracts you may be awarded.
We will review your information
Once you submit your application we will review your information to check you are a legitimate business. We aim to review and assess applications within two weeks but this may take longer if we receive many applications at the same time or if your information is missing or misspelt and we need to liaise with you to fix.
If we approve your application, your profile will be listed on our Seller catalogue and your summary information will be visible to all. This includes your name, business summary, the services you offer, and any badges that identify your unique characteristics. Only registered buyers will be able to see and search for more detailed information about you. See this FAQ outlining your profile information and who can see it.
Request assessment for a digital area of expertise
When you are a registered seller and are listed on the Seller catalogue, you can then request assessment for a digital area of expertise when you respond to an opportunity. It is important that you respond to an opportunity early so there is sufficient time for you to be assessed and approved.
Understand the Marketplace assessment process
The stages of assessment on the Marketplace are:
- A prospective seller submits an application to join the Marketplace.
- The seller is approved as a registered seller and is listed on the Seller catalogue.
- The registered seller sees a suitable opportunity and requests an assessment to supply digital services in a particular ‘digital area of expertise’.
- The seller is approved in the area of expertise and can respond to the opportunity.
- The seller chooses to broaden their service offering so requests assessment for additional areas of expertise in an opportunity (repeating stage 3 and 4).
