Ownership and Management Structures
Many Local Authorities are realising the importance of providing a market service to best serve the local and wider reaching community and yet do not wish to either own or manage market facilities but would rather concentrate on their primary service delivery. This is resulting in a number of sizeable market services being privatised. Quarterbridge has recognised this opportunity and has been instrumental in the establishment of a market investment fund, destined to acquire market sites (predominantly indoor markets) in partnership with its operational divisions. Quarterbridge also manages the assets in order to deliver high quality retail town-centre retail destinations.
On Site Operational Management and Staff Training
Quarterbridge operational managers are sourced from high calibre retailing disciplines and possess a wealth of modern retailing methodology and skill-sets that are essential to retail markets.
Our managers work flexibly and can be placed within a market service to assist with the implementation of operational recommendations and provide management and staff training.
Typically, such postings are temporary, lasting a few months with top up visits on a monthly or weekly basis. They are seen as a valuable contribution to improving market services.
