Delivering business and technology modernisation with our specialist resources
As an established provider of specialist technology and commercial resources to both public and private sector customers, Methods has a reputation for being ‘the people who deliver high-quality resources at speed’.
Over the past 30 years we’ve used our delivery capability and specialist expertise in digital and cloud technology transformation projects, programme management, and change management to support our customers through some of the most challenging business change and technology programmes. This experience, combined with our deep knowledge of the procurement and commercial landscape, means we can add intrinsic value to any resourcing need.
Methods understands the detailed issues that legacy organisations face. This means we’re able to deliver a range of tailored, complex solutions and outcomes that support many of the projects and technologies that underpin the UK’s critical national infrastructure.
Proven and trusted resources
Our business is based upon successful and long-standing, trusted relationships with customers and associates. We use a combination of Methods staff and carefully selected associates who are top performers in their specialist field.
Our associates are part of the Methods community: they are proven and trusted resources with whom we have long-standing relationships, and deploy repeatedly. Some of our associates have worked for us, assignment after assignment, for over 20 years. They are part of our family.
Benefiting from holding List X status ensures that every time we provide a security cleared resource, we are 100% confident they hold current SC clearance. We have worked with all the major security cleared public sector departments over the past 30 years and have a thorough understanding of everything related to the security cleared process. We have access to over 8000 security cleared associates and have over 100 working for us on secured sites at any given time.
Methods has worked with more than 100 government departments, placed more than 4,000 resources, and has a reutilisation rate of 78%. We know what works and we know the best people for the job.
Delivering a great service
We believe that if we serve our customers well, first and foremost, they will reward our efforts with greater trust. All our relationships with central government departments span many years and lead to a deep understanding of their main projects and programmes, and the nuances involved in identifying the best-of-breed resources to help deliver.
We deliver quality resources at pace
We recognise the importance of providing customers with access to resources and services quickly. That’s why we accelerate resource on-boarding and simplify the commercial and procurement process. Through our experienced cross-sector resourcing teams, we have exclusive access to Methods’ associates and a wider network of contractors. This enables us to pool and deploy resources at pace.
