Government and public services

Public services matter to all of us. We all want public services to be easy to find, simple to use and deliver what we need. Faced with complex problems and under pressure to do better for less, we work with our government and public sector clients to deliver innovative solutions, achieve better outcomes and deliver value for the taxpayer.

Find out about our work with the government and public services

We are facing unprecedented change in the government and public services landscape. Brexit dominates the agenda with trade and customs, immigration and employment centre stage. The new Industrial Strategy will look at ways to deliver inclusive and place based growth. Added to this, technological changes continue at pace with the moves towards digital and ever greater use of data analytics bringing huge benefits but also greater threats, for example to our cyber security. In the last year, we worked with over 600 government and public sector clients. Our ambition is to provide innovative, workable solutions to deliver transformational change and achieve value for money and results.

If universities wish to remain agile and to maximise the opportunities of new markets overseas - is this approach fit for the future?

Paying for pensions: what will it mean for HE support staff?

Paying for pensions: what will it mean for HE support staff?

The Government has issued its pensions White Paper, "Protecting Defined Benefit ("DB") Pension Schemes". Key measures include proposals to improve the current Scheme Funding system including a new revised Code of Practice.

Where are the lower-paid men? The gender pay-gap at Universities

“Universities pay women a fifth less” says the Times, “Another clever man here determined to blame the gender pay gap on anything except bias” a Labour MP says in response to an explanation of a university’s pay gap and “First gender pay gap data paints UK universities in poor light” says The Times Higher Education, but what does the data reported tell us about the pay gap at Universities?
