Change and transformation leaders

Proven interim & permanent change and transformation leaders to solve your biggest challenges

Change and transformation are the top of business agendas.  Done well it can accelerate the growth of an organisation. Done badly, or not at all, and the impact on the business can be catastrophic.

When change and transformation are required, the right talent can’t always be found inside an organisation – and often an external perspective is key to delivering results. Change and transformation directors employed on a perm or interim basis are the perfect people to guide businesses through a transition – bringing both a fresh outside perspective and expertise not available in-house. As well as defining, communicating, documenting and implementing strategies to manage change smoothly, their input can make a big difference to how employees, suppliers, customers and investors respond to the change.

It’s a challenging role. And a critical one. Finding the right change and transformation leaders with the expertise and skills is not easy.

That’s what we’re experts in.

Whether it’s permanent chief transformation officers or interim change directors, our team works with some of the largest global firms, specialist consultancies, public sector organisations and PE-backed ventures to find the right leaders fast. We find proven change and transformation professionals that combine vision, commercial acumen and an ability to rally people behind change. People that can make a difference from day one. And we find them fast.

Who we work with

FTSE 250 & global corporations
The change and transformation challenges are immense for complex businesses, operating at scale and across borders. When speed is of the essence a highly experienced interim change and transformation director can step in – be that as a safe pair of hands to see you through turbulent times, or as the driver of significant strategic change that transforms workforces or whole organisations.

Medium-sized enterprises / private equity portfolio companies
When businesses are scaling up or seeking efficiencies, effective change management is central to success. An interim change and transformation director can drive the technical, structural and behavioural change needed to achieve rapid growth and faster value creation. Change and transformation interims also prove their worth in managing the myriad challenges of mergers and acquisitions.

Start-ups / venture capital-backed businesses
In the excitement of the start-up phase, change management processes and strategy rarely get the attention they deserve. As the business matures, it can suddenly find itself with some very sticky problems. An interim change and transformation director can put the right foundation in place at the start.

Public sector, third sector & housing
The public sector faces the long-term challenge of doing more with less. Restructures, outsourcing, changing service delivery models all call for the proven change management experience that an interim change director can deliver.
