Effective corporate affairs consulting born from experience

We use our experience of corporate affairs executive search and understanding of good organisational design to provide consultancy services to businesses on a project basis.  This work typically falls into one of three areas:
Team development  

We work with you to ensure your teams are in the best shape to meet the needs of your organisation, now and in the future.  This includes:

  • Organisational design, team structure and job descriptions

  • Capability audits

  • Coaching, mentoring and training

  • Succession planning

We review your recruitment process to help you secure the best talent.  This includes:

  • Recruitment process audits and improvement plans

  • Bespoke assessments to test potential hires (and, where appropriate, current team members)

  • Tackling unconscious bias using Applied technology

  • Interview training for hiring managers

  • Salary benchmarking

Special projects
We also have the experience and expertise to deliver bespoke projects.  These might include:

  • Building/re-building whole teams, including assessing internal applicants

  • International hires

  • Appointing CEOs, Director Generals, Non-Executive Directors and Trustees from a corporate affairs background

  • Outplacement - supporting corporate affairs practitioners whose roles have been made redundant

Where appropriate we work with partner organisations whose expertise complements ours.
