Principal – Delivery Excellence (Government Sector)

Why Moorhouse? 

Moorhouse is a dynamic consulting firm, focused on unlocking the potential of our people and our clients to amplify the value of change. Clients like what we do but most importantly how we work. We are looking for motivated people to join the rapidly growing Moorhouse team, specifically we are looking for an individual who will lead on large, complex transformational consulting engagements and act as the interlock between our Delivery Excellence Service Line and our Government & Public Services (G&PS) Sector. 

We pride ourselves on being proactive, collaborative, and straightforward team players. We like to move fast as a team, and both honesty and integrity are key to this. In return you will be part of a supportive and high-performing group that shares the workload, looks after each other and celebrates success together. You can be assured of exciting opportunities that will stretch you and equip you with skills, experience and knowledge that can help organisations respond to the turbulence, change and opportunity that will define the future. We don’t do politics, egos, or personal agendas – it consumes too much time and distracts us from being successful together.

The Delivery Excellence Service Line helps clients define and deliver complex change, as well as build change capability for sustainable performance improvement. Services offered through our Delivery Excellence Service Line include Programme & Project Leadership, Portfolio Design & Governance and Programme Assurance. We are looking for a Principal Consultant who will primarily focus on leading our Delivery Excellence work in the Government & Public Services sector. The G&PS Sector encompasses the sub-sectors: Justice & Security, Central Government, Housing & Social Care and Charities. This is a rapidly expanding area for us, and we need a senior leader who can bring their skills and credibility to our G&PS clients across all levels.

✔  9 - 11 years relevant business change and transformation delivery experience, whether this is from a big consulting firm, boutique consultancy or experience in industry
✔  A strong track record of scoping and delivering consulting solutions and services; with a strong track record in the Government and Public Services sector
