Shared Services


Shared services can release huge savings for organisations while significantly improving service outcomes. They better utilise resource, reduce duplication and release real economies of scale.

Whether you are looking at joining back office functionality, sharing management structures, creating a cross-public sector service or thinking about setting up a joint venture, we have extensive experience in all areas, and can help from building the business case for sharing, through to complete implementation.

As part of this, we also have expertise in resolving issues with staff unions, HMRC, state aid and public sector pensions.


“With further stringent national spending cuts in the offing, partnership working has put us in a much better place". “The current reviews will ensure we stay on course and achieve the savings that the present economic climate demands.”
