Our Partnership with Prospects|
3BM is the first mutual joint venture to spin out of local government. It brings together an experienced team from three high performing London Local Authorities; The London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and The City of Westminster and our Partner Prospects.
In November 2014, 3BM was awarded the Highly Commended Public Service Mutual of the Year at the annual Employee Owners Association, Baxendale awards ceremony. The award is endorsed by the Cabinet Office and is testament to our ethos and service delivery.
Andy Rennison: Managing Director
Andy has overseen and led a range of services in the public and private sectors, including, Education, HR, Finance, ICT, Governors, Buildings, Housing, School Organisation and multi-faceted regeneration projects.
He was the driving force behind the creation of 3BM and is supporting the broader developments in the Employee Owned sector, by advising and supporting the commercialisation of public services.
Our values reflect our organisation and aspirations, through our continual investment in our people and their futures, you are guaranteed the best service, advice and training to help you deliver for your clients. We support so that you can achieve.
“Our Employee Mutual was created to provide specialist services that support schools to improve education and learning and deliver strategic services to public and private sector bodies.”
As the staff group were spinning out of the three Local Authorities, they sought a partner to help their transition, mobilise and convert into an employee owned business.
Prospects, who themselves are a mutual, were selected and are a minority shareholder within the 3BM Partnership. They bring commercial acumen, business planning and strategic advice to the relationship. Their continued support has empowered us to embed employee ownership as a core value driving our development.
The Prospects Group is a dynamic and enterprising organisation providing a wide range of education, employment and training services in the UK and internationally. At the heart of what we do is the drive to improve the life chances, skills and aspirations of everyone we support. Each year we touch the lives of more than a million people through our extensive range of high quality services.
“We are delighted to support 3BM. The team have a fantastic wealth of experience and great ideas to drive the business forward.”
Ray Auvray, Chairman of Prospects
“3BM is leading the way in a new model for delivering public services for the Education sector. It’s inspiring to work with people who recognised that the way they worked could be more efficient ‘and effective’ and did something about it. Prospects has been able to help them realise their vision and develop their commercial expertise. We look forward to working with 3BM as they grow and develop.”
Nick Bell, Chief Executive of Prospects
“It’s an honour for Prospects to be the chosen partner of 3BM and part of their mutual journey. The whole 3BM team deserve all the plaudits they’ve received for creating a brilliant, dynamic, trusted education business.”
Patrick Burns, Director of Mutuals Development
