31ten is a trusted, independent, and agile consultancy that works closely with a range of public-sector organisations, principally in local and central government.

Specialising in the areas of strategy, leadership, assets, procurement, regeneration, housing, and organisational change, we benefit from a rare combination of experience that is more specialist than that of traditional consultancies. This allows us to deliver the tailored, creative results our clients want to meet their individual needs.

Our mission

31ten is committed to working in partnership with the public sector to make places better for the people that live, work, and learn in them. Integrity, inclusivity, social and environmental awareness are at the heart of what we do, and we collaborate with our clients to deliver sustainable change, meaningful impact, and better outcomes.

Our values

One of our founding ambitions was to move away from the corporate setting and to form a genuinely client-focussed consultancy that helped our clients achieve more with what they have or to be better at what they do. The values we uphold today continue to reflect that original ambition, as well as the environment in which we work with each other and our partners.

Trusted Communication

We communicate and act with integrity and honesty, and in return trust others to do the same; we ask questions and listen to gain deeper insights.

Delivering Value

We deliver quality outputs and solutions to clients through strong organisation and sound decision making; we are agile and adaptable.

Curiosity and Innovation

We embrace our instinctive curiosity and champion innovative thinking to challenge the status quo; we are a team that champions diversity and inclusivity.

Collaborative Leadership

We collaborate effectively with clients, competitors, and colleagues to build long lasting relationships; we support and celebrate the achievements of others.

Growth Mindset

We encourage a culture of professional and technical growth through sharing and receiving feedback; we demonstrate resilience and an openness to change.


We work as a team to turn problems into solutions and have a strong desire for continuous learning.


We value happiness above all else, empowering and encouraging individuals to work in the way that best suits them and prioritises their mental and physical health.
