Invitation to Tender: Public Relations services for Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Growth Hub


On behalf of the CIoS Growth Hub, CDC wishes to appoint an agency to deliver public relations and campaign activity to generate positive, business related media coverage that will raise awareness and promote the service in conjunction with achieving media profile for its clients at a local, regional and national level as appropriate.

The agency will be required to deliver consistent and high quality online, print and broadcast media coverage including trade or sector specific publications/channels when relevant.

The agency will generate media coverage that places Growth Hub clients at the centre of each story, focussing on their success to demonstrate the quality and impact of the Growth Hub service and related business support activity.  This will form the bulk of the contract, but there will also be the opportunity to plan and deliver campaign activity around relevant business themes as well as key milestones and events for the Growth Hub.


A budget has been set for this commission of up to £40,000 (excluding VAT) for public relations and campaign activity until 30 September 2021. The cost of advertising and advertorial placement will be covered by a separate budget, subject to agreement.

The budget for the commission will be allocated based on agreed activity and associated costs with the successful Tenderer.
