Helping your business grow

SCLO Consulting

My name is Steve O'Hare and I am the founder and owner of SCLO Consulting.

Throughout my career, I have loved winning new business. There is nothing like the kick you get in planning for, tendering for and then being awarded new contracts.

A particular four-month spell always sticks in my mind when I headed a team that was awarded 26 contracts worth close to £50m during that period. 

It was an exciting time for us and the success of it all saw the team featured in 

It was an exciting time and it was great to see the team commended in FE Week.

During 15 years in the business, I have been lucky enough to work for major industry-leading companies like the JHP Group, learndirect and Newcastle College Group.

These organisations asked me to lead on and, more importantly, win contracts from the Education and Skills Funding Agency, Department of Work and Pensions, Ministry of Justice, Skills Development Scotland, Welsh Government and through the European Social Fund.

Years of experience, coupled with a strong desire to win the contracts I set out to win has enabled me to build a good reputation over the years and, pleasingly, receive word of mouth recommendations too.

Earning the respect of your peers always means a lot and, I like to think, means that my work is appreciated.

So, in 2018, I decided to set up my own company to enable me to support other businesses and share future successes.

SCLO was born to specialise in:

  • Tender management, writing, review and support

  • Market analysis and entry strategies, including stakeholder engagement

  • Tender process design and support on business decisions

I would like to tell you much more about why you should choose SCLO and let you know how I can help your business grow.
