Partnering through change to deliver results
Partnering through change to deliver results
Our ability to source the right individuals that deliver real results is exemplary. We do this through truly understanding our customers (both clients and interim managers) and the market. And our relentless pursuit of creating shared success certainly helps as well. Whether our customer is a FTSE 100/250 Global business, Local Authority, SME, Charity/Not-for-Profit or Tech Start-up, we’re in a world of constant change. The Interim Management community thrives on this. Which means a flexible resource solution is the perfect way to deliver results, and guide an organisation through periods of transition. As a top three Interim Provider for the fourth year running (voted for by Interim Managers), we put customer experience at the heart of everything we do.
All our advertised roles are listed on this page. We also recruit to roles that our clients may not want advertised. To access these exclusive opportunities, it’s easy to register your interest by submitting your CV. We guarantee that we’ll keep your information in the strictest of confidence.
“Turning vision into reality.”
We’re known for our ability to find rare talent and specialist skills in domestic and international markets. The key is rigorously testing and assessing the candidate’s ability to deliver in one of the most scrutinised and demanding of professional fields.
Our experienced consultants work across Whitehall, its agencies and devolved administrations to deliver the best senior talent. We’ve placed leaders ready to tackle some of the biggest challenges around – from leading the UK’s efforts to compete in global markets, to driving the Government’s scientific research into climate change.

“Supporting those who support others.”
We’re passionate about our work with organisations that make a profound impact to the lives of others. Our firm belief is that they deserve the brightest leadership talent in the market. We can deliver on this because we understand the specific issues the sector faces, while drawing on wider expertise of supporting transformation.
We’ve worked with top UK and international charities, housing associations, cultural institutions, social enterprises, mutuals and NGOs delivering leadership talent. This has included supporting Trustees and Boards to shape new governance structures and operating models.
“Creating sustainable communities, transforming organisations and delivering impact.”
It’s inspiring for us to partner the leaders and organisations who serve the residents of local communities. That’s why we’re proud of our reputation for supporting transformational change in the sector. And why it matters to us to be a market leader for placing interim and permanent CEOs and strategic leaders.
That reputation is built on our unrivalled insight into the issues facing local government, including: devolution, workforce reform, developing commercial trading operations, and designing alternative service delivery models.
With Penna, added value comes as standard.
