We are a worker co-operative, an employee-owned company providing a range of business services to a broad base of clients including co-operatives, small businesses, charities, and local authorities. Our clients value our personal, friendly and down-to-earth approach.
Co-opportunity is based in Bristol and we have clients across England and Wales. One of us lives in southwest Wales and works from home. Nowadays much of our work can be done without face to face contact – but we enjoy meeting our clients whenever possible!
We started in 1997 when the three founder members – Tim, Mark and Simon – were all working as business advisers for Avon CDA, the co-operative development agency for the Bristol area. We had a common background in the co-operative business sector and enjoyed working together, so we decided to set up as an independent business to provide accountancy and database services. Later on we broadened our services to include web design and multimedia when Huw joined us.
We’re now in our sixteenth year of successful trading. By consistently providing value for money and a personal service appropriate to the needs of each of our clients, most of our new business comes by word of mouth referrals.
