Government and Public Services
For public sector organisations, just as in the commercial sector, leaders who can drive through strategic change and win the widespread buy-in of their colleagues are essential for success.
The drive for value for money, even stronger focus on customers and more commercial approaches also means that public bodies are increasingly looking to import senior executive skills and experience from the private sector. In the opposing direction, outsourcing of public services to the private sector is also fuelling demand for individuals with relevant leadership experience.
The Government and Public Services practice at Harvey Nash has a strong track record of identifying first-rate leadership talent within both the public and private sectors and transferring it to our public sector clients in central and local government, housing and education.
Our team has world-class expertise gained from personal experience of successfully leading organisations within the public sector. We are also able to advise clients on how to achieve a wider range of issues such as diversity at board level and interim solutions.
