Our approach

Hadfield Consultants was formed in 2011 to serve clients from public services and the private sector. We are an advisory business centred around a base of highly talented experts within their chosen field. Our associates have worked across many sectors and in many capacities – from the top echelons of the civil service to highly sophisticated technical and architecture based roles. We have particular expertise in formulating and delivering shared service initiatives across the public sector. While our expertise stretches across all sectors we have particular deep domain experience within the education and skills sector – from a departmental perspective through to each of the sectors (schools, further and higher education).

What makes us stand out?

  • Flexibility

    No preconceived ideas or models – we advise, create and deliver the change that suits your journey.
  • Quality

    We are highly pragmatic, straightforward and easy to deal with and most importantly produce outputs and deliverables of the highest quality.We have the experts at hand to help – whatever the next step on your journey.
