Managed Services

We have an ever increasing number of clients that rely on us to maintain and improve their management system performance.

Awareness Training Sessions

As we build your system with you we deliver training sessions to make sure you get the biggest benefit possible from your system.Topics include:

  • ISO in english, not "ISO speak"
  • Internal auditing
  • Strategy development

Our clients regularly go on to ask us to run such sessions for new staff, or as refresher sessions.

Managed services

An increasing number of clients have asked us to continue supporting the internal team.

Equally, some of clients were already certified and turned to us to help.

In either case there are a number of reasons why this is the case:

  1. an impartial, second pair of eyes reviewing things to reassure them things are going the right way.
  2. Best practice transfer – we have seen the same needs and challenges addressed in a variety of ways and we can pass on the ideas.
  3. They simply don’t have the time to manage their system. They prefer to operate the system, leaving us to keep it current, compliant and in line with how they are working

Each client’s needs are unique, so we work with you to arrive at the right service package. We offer discounts for one, two or three year contracts (in line with the certification cycle).

Typical work includes

  • Internal audits
  • Non-conformance/corrective action management
  • Management reviews
  • System maintenance
  • System re-engineering (as the legacy systems just aren’t working for them)
  • System updating (as major structural change in the business means the system needs updating to adapt to the new structure)
  • Business process re-engineering


Contact us today to let us know what help you need. Subject to the right work package being contracted for, we guarantee retention of your certificates.

It was only by utilising the expert guidance and experience of Episode that Thurston Group was able to attain certification within an exceptionally challenging time frame. We therefore offer our thanks to Episode Ltd. For the diligent and professional services provided. We also look forward to working with them again soon and would not hesitate to recommend their services."

Peter Spieight, Senior Divisional Director, Thurston Group, Wakefield

Roger's support was invaluable in terms of gap analysis, recommendations for improvement, and facilitation of the certification process. I would strongly recommend Roger to any organisation wishing to develop or improve its management systems, in a way which minimizes bureaucracy, and focuses on best serving the needs of the organization.

Gary Evans, Flour Corporation, Abu Dhabi

Roger and Sandy at Episode were  great in helping us achieve not only one but two ISO standards 9001:2015 and 14001:2015. Episode were extremely helpful from the onset, they were able to break down the ISO standard so they were easily comprehensible and well applied to our business in a sustainable manner.  They are a company that offers a guaranteed certification at the end of the process and they delivered it.  I believe that the work completed during this process was key to us having won the Leeds Bid contract.

Harvey Mills, Managing Director, Forge Recycling, Leeds. 

If Sandy hasn’t already updated you we are delighted to say we passed the transition audit for ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.  Sandy did an absolutely fab job and all credit to her, we have loved having both of you here it’s been a pleasure.

I have had a brief chat with Morgan[the CEO] about the next steps and how we manage things going forwards.  Morgan will be in touch with you soon about this and getting Episode/Sandy back in on a regular basis. Once again many thanks for everything and especially to Sandy!!

Morag Tearne, HR and Health & Safety Manager, H. Slingsby plc, Shipley

Episode is always prepared to go the extra mile. When in a tight spot the lead consultant carried out an audit for us at very short notice (on a Sunday afternoon) to keep us on track. What is important to us is the advice they give us is practical and tailored to us. The quality of output Episode produces is very high. 

This has resulted in us having a multi-year managed service from Episode so as a company we know our ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 integrated system is up to date and working for us. 

Gareth Walters, Financial Controller, Sports Turf Research Institute, Bingley.

When asked by Episode what three things they do well, and what three things they could improve upon, my answers were:

Done well

1. Client Communication, responded to queries very quickly

2. Requirements of the standard were communicated in a simple manner.

3. Assistance from initial implementation to date of assessment was very good.

I can honestly there is nothing I feel they should improve upon.

Paul Hunneybell, Operations Manager, Fenland Fire Contracts Limited, Luton

The consultant worked with the team in Scott Bader Middle East Ltd. to completely re-engineer our Integrated Management System incorporating ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001. Until then we were slaves to the ISO audits, with the systems not adding much value beyond certification. Now we have a business management system that really works for us and is truly integrated into our operations. We were also successfully re-certified along the way.

John Kemp, CEO Scott Bader Middle East, Africa and Asia

The consultant really focused on making our systems and processes work better for us, not just help us comply with ISO 9001. He was able to work with Department Heads and Senior Management to shape their strategic thinking about quality and business objectives without telling them what they had to do because the standard says so.
