We are an Associate Member of the Business Services Association, a policy and research organisation providing a forum for service providers to discuss issues of common interest.

The industry is continuing to evolve apace, driven by:

  • increased adoption of technology
  • downward pressure on margins
  • demand for new skills
  • continued UK Government spending agenda to seek outsourcing partners
  • the proposed rebalancing of the UK economy through Devolution
  • new market entrants attracted by the multi-million contracts
  • introduction of the Living Wage
  • the ongoing shift from a single service provider to bundling multiple services
  • challenges around organisational complexity and the need to be more flexible
  • the way BPO capabilities are expanding to encompass business critical functions in addition to the traditional “Admin” back office activity

The complexities of the sector are also driving demand for senior executives from both within and outside the Business & Support Services sector.

Building long-term relationships is core to everything we do, within a results driven environment where industry knowledge and extensive networks is critical. Whether you are seeking a Non-Executive Director, Divisional MD, a Group HR Director or a specialist functional Director, we can help.
