About SCS

SCS is a small team of senior consultants offering technology and management consulting services.

SCS is owned and run by two directors, and grew up around the freelance consulting business that Helen and Gavin Sweet built up over a 5 year period. Both Helen and Gavin were original members of the Freeserve team, and helped to grow the technology and management functions into an organisation that IPO'ed, then sold to France Telecom, and merged with Orange.

We are based in Leeds in Yorkshire, but we work all over the UK and Europe, with many of our clients in London.

Our focus is on quality, not quantity, and our aim is to deliver business focused outcomes for our clients.


We work with a network of associates all of whom are personally known to us, and with whom we have worked before.

Ourselves, our associates and our network have predominantly come from internet, telecoms and portal businesses, with strong experience in start-up, growth and operational business phases.

We provide deep and wide business and managerial experience, technical and managerial specialisms, subject matter expertise and best practice methodology. Our consultants come with a trusted set of skills.

  • Hands-on experience delivering solutions in technically and commercially challenging environments
  • Senior management and board level experience across the technology spectrum
  • Track records in development of teams, methodologies and processes
  • Strong enterprise architecture and programme management skills
