Working With Us

York Community Consulting (YCC) is a pro bono business management consultancy. We seek to make a positive social impact on the local community and beyond. We achieve this through professional and thorough consultancy work.
Operating to a very high standard, YCC has an excellent track record. We bring new perspectives and solutions to both new and well-established organisation. We work with small and medium-sized enterprises, charities, start-ups and local government.

We have teams of well-mentored and professional consultants. YCC seeks to benefit the local community through the work we do. We assign a Strategy Director, an External Mentor, a Project Manager, and a team of consultants to each project.
This ensures that the service we provide is of the highest standard, and meets our clients' needs. We offer a bespoke service that is tailored to each client. We don't have a limited comfort zone, we can operate with a great deal of flexibility with each project.

There are certain areas of work in which we are well suited, although we are not limited to these areas. These include:
  • Marketing and branding strategies
  • Market research and analysis
  • Social impact measurement and analysis
  • Youth-specific consultancy services and research
  • Social media, web and data strategy
The beauty of having a pool of talented consultants is that YCC is not limited in the range of projects we undertake. We approach each project with fresh enthusiasm. Plus, a drive to deliver a high-quality and professional service to all our clients. We handpick our consultants for each individual project. We select consultants based on their skill set and the skills required for each task. This ensures that our team of consultants has the relevant experience. Plus, the knowledge to produce a high-quality end product.

If you think YCC would benefit your company, charity, or organisation, then please get in contact with us. We will then get back to you as soon as possible to discuss the next stages. Please provide us with as much background information on your organisation as possible. Plus, outline what you would like YCC to assist with. We are open to a wide variety of new projects and clients.
