The benefits

Why Exemplas

The economic landscape has transformed dramatically since we started out a quarter of a century ago. Along the way, we've seen everything from high-speed innovation on an unimaginable scale to unforeseen political challenge.

Amidst all this change, there is a constant: our ability to anticipate what is coming next, and identify how we use innovation to the advantage of our clients and SMEs. This approach underpins the quality expert advisory services we provide to our customers, so you can achieve your objectives and help your clients succeed. Our open and collaborative approach has managed £500m of funding, supported 30,000 students and over half a million businesses to realise their potential.

News & insights

Our advice in action


Collaborating with an external partner is really what has enabled us to make this service such a success. Our partnership with Exemplas has given us immediate and timely access to a flexible and experienced resource pool that enables us to meet peaks and troughs in demand across the range of services offered. Rather than adding an extra dimension to the employability service, Exemplas has provided the backbone for it.
