Transformation Finance

As market conditions continue to change across the UK, many companies are looking to optimise their existing resources by implementing Transformation, Change or Strategy projects to help deliver and shape their direction towards strategic goals.

Those goals can take a number of forms.  Our team have placed Transformation professionals to manage change in: marketing and brand, finance, sales, procurement and operations, and more.

Transformation can also be required after acquisition, disposal or consolidation events.

For many of our clients, hiring a Transformation Director - particularly on an interim basis - is an excellent, cheaper alternative to engaging a Management Consultancy.  This is a trend we have been observing especially in medium-sized businesses.

We are able to fulfil mandates for Transformation Directors, Project Managers and beyond on both a permanent and interim basis.


“Dealing with GRG has been an easy process from the outset due to their relaxed and professional manner. By taking the time to learn about our business, our company's culture and our future ambitions, they provided us with an impressive short list of candidates very well matched to the role. The successful candidate was not someone actively looking but they matched our requirements to someone they thought would be a good fit."
