By Sector

Whatever the sector, the core of what we do is Business and Transformational change. We have never completed an assignment that did not have a significant element of change, even if that was not made explicit at the outset.

By its nature working with the Change Management community leads into many sectors particularly when this extends to Outsourcing and Support Services which are our largest individual concentrations;

Business Process Outsourcing – From Bid Leadership and Management through transition management to on-going client engagement we understand the commercial dynamics and challenges of this sector and can provide the right blend of skills at each point of the outsourcing life cycle.

Business Services – From Facilities Management and Property Services to Logistics and Transport groups, we understand the lean operating models and particular commercial pressures of this sector. We can offer deep industry expertise but we also are able to bring in expertise from closely aligned business sectors that can have hugely beneficial results.

By Level

We work with clients on senior and leadership roles, generally within two reports of the Operating Board. Typically this would include Director, Head Of and Manager designations, depending on the span of control. Recent industry data would indicate this is approximately the top 20% of the interim marketplace.

By Assignment Type

We work with senior interims in the UK who operate at Board or near Board levels in their functions and depending on the assignment, work in different capacities with you;

As an Interim Manager – fulfilling a line role within your organisation with delegated authority to lead the solution and deliver real value. This accounts for approximately 60% of the assignments on which we work.

As an Independent Consultant – acting in a business advisory capacity, refining and evolving business or programme strategies. This type of assignment fits into the gap between the global management consultancy models and the delivery orientation of the interim manager.

As a Subject-matter specialist with skills and knowledge that not needed full time within the organisation.  This tends to be driven by significant events such as mergers and acquisitions, disposals or changes to the regulatory environment.

It is quite likely that assignments require a blend of all three as they evolve and we monitor this very closely to make sure you have the best fit at all times.
