With nearly 7 million people employed in the public sector it accounts for 23% of the entire working population. It's also a massively diverse sector that includes local authorities, NHS, housing associations, education, transport, social services, and defence to name just a few.

It's a sector that faces continuous funding challenges during the current austere economic times, without a decrease in demand for quality services, adding pressure to senior executives to deliver more for less. We know that increasing efficiency whilst improving quality is high on the agenda of any public sector organisation, and using new technologies to help provide value adding solutions are vital.

We understand the importance of finding the best talent who can provide and implement a clear strategy, adopting new ways of working to deliver quality services with increased efficiency. We are experts at identifying market leading individuals from a diverse range of niche markets, who have not only the right skills set, but just as importantly, will also fit your culture.

Our experience in this sector has included the successful completion of a number of assignments including:

  • Chief Executive Officer
  • Head of Finance
  • Senior Project Manager
  • Head of Delivery
