We make it easy for companies to do business with the government

Tussell was founded in 2015 to fill a gap in the market for the provision of useful and reliable information on what the government is purchasing. We bring clarity and context to this previously opaque market, that accounts for around 10% of UK GDP.

Our market insight helps:

    •    Companies to enhance their public sector business development 

    •    Public sector bodies to get better value from their procurement 

    •    Capital markets firms to identify investment risks and opportunities

With over 300 press citations since 2018, we’ve also fast become the media’s trusted source of insight on public contracts. Publications including the Economist, the Financial Times and the Guardian come to us for insight on a diverse range of topics, including Carillion contracts, the cost of Brexit consulting, and upgrades to fire safety post-Grenfell. It was Tussell that alerted the press to the Seaborne Freight contract.

We are enabling better delivery of public services through increased transparency, competition and accountability in government contracting. Effective collaboration across the public and private sectors is at the heart of delivering high-quality public services, and to spreading prosperity across the UK.

More details

Tussell is the go-to source of information on what the UK public sector is buying, from who. We mine data on contracts and spending from thousands of public sector organisations and turn it into insights on the biggest marketplace in the UK. Our clients include large suppliers, small companies looking to increase their public sector business, and the government itself. 

We have recently undergone a period of significant expansion and are thus looking for an experienced researcher to manage and grow our internal and external research output. The ideal candidate will be experienced in originating, scoping and producing high quality quantitative, politically-relevant reports. 

This is a great opportunity for someone looking to break into a more senior research role in the near future. While the role will initially sit underneath a Head of Research, we are looking for someone who is capable and eager to grow into that position over the medium term.
