Areas we cover
We’re experts in the provision of specialist recruitment services (contract, fixed-term, permanent) and solutions to clients across the health sector. Our health consultants deliver technology and interim management professionals to NHS Trusts, Commissioning Support Units (CSU), Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG), collaborative procurement hubs and private healthcare providers. We also support and deliver programmes of work alongside running a fully outsourced recruitment solution at one of the UK’s top NHS trusts. This depth of experience has enabled us to develop an intrinsic understanding of the different ways in which our business can support the NHS and wider health sector.
We have been supporting higher education, further education and local education authorities for more than a decade. We have provided individuals and whole project teams to implement, develop and support technology platforms and systems that enable the delivery of future-state programmes across the educational sector. With a client portfolio that includes some of the UK’s top universities and leading educational institutions, the sheer depth of our supply history has allowed us to become fully conversant in the sector’s specific hiring needs, challenges and priorities. We consistently connect establishments with the highly specialised technical skills they need, whilst always remaining focused on the criticality of each individual’s cultural fit for the academic environment. This allows us to provide responsive staffing solutions that deliver impactful results to organisations right across the education sector.ed
Local Authorities are facing unprecedented challenges, in response to austerity, funding reductions, demographic pressures and technological change. As councils look to become more self-sufficient and commercial in response to these pressures, our specialist Local Government team is helping to enable these changes through solutions and the supply of highly skilled talent that are able to drive and deliver transformation. Working alongside Council leadership teams, we have supported and delivered a range of complex portfolios of change and channel shift efficiencies through technology within Social Services, Corporate Service Re-design, Delivery of Shared Services, Target Operating Models, Commercial Decision-making and Trading, amongst others. We’re able to leverage our deep understanding of councils’ pain points alongside our mature consultant network to deliver tailored, responsive solutions that deliver impactful results.
As the government agenda of austerity and major structural reform continues to impact almost every area of public services, the demand for individuals and teams that can deliver value in this rapidly changing environment is critical. We have a very mature network comprising the most sought after specialists, which has been built up throughout our 15 years of operating within the sector. As an approved Crown Commercial Service (CCS) framework supplier of consultancy services, we’ve also delivered programmes of work across the sector, into the most high profile and business-critical projects within central government.
We’re currently at the centre of a major national housing crisis. With the government setting housing supply as a national priority, local authorities must be able to manage current and future housing demand more effectively. As housing associations seek to respond to increasing financial pressures, there has been a real surge in mergers across the sector. We have been delivering technology professionals to housing associations and councils’ Arms Length Management Organisations (ALMO) for a number of years now. These individuals are enabling organisations to understand what can be accomplished at the intersection of business and technology to enable digital transformation, something which is so critical to the sector’s future growth and stability.
Not for Profit
Charities are facing ever increasing pressure on already stretched resources. In response to these challenges, charities and not for profit organisations alike are restructuring and becoming more streamlined and commercially focused as they work to exploit the efficiencies and opportunities associated with digitisation. We have been helping the UK’s top charities and non-profit organisations to navigate these challenges for more than a decade now, connecting them with talented individuals, on an interim and permanent hire basis, alongside entire project teams. We also regularly deliver exclusive programmes of work. We’re able to leverage our intrinsic understanding of the not for profit environment to consistently help organisations to identify and secure the best talent within the sector’s highest demand skill areas.
In an environment of ongoing transformation, and at a time when public sector organisations are facing tightening efficiency controls, our consultants are driving forward complex transformation programmes, enabling the delivery of more efficient services to meet the changing demands of the public. Working closely with public sector leaders, we can build successful digital services using agile delivery models to enable channel shift and digital transformation. We achieve results through our expansive, mature network – a network which is made up of a deep sector and industry knowledge, broad functional capabilities and a high calibre of technical astuteness. Working across central government, local government, health, higher education, housing and not-for-profit sectors, we are able to offer a delivery model which is truly flexibly and cost efficient, achieving full utilisation of resources as and when required by your organisation.
