As a local government organisation we have unprecedented hands on experience and knowledge of the sector. We do not simply place an interim manager in a local authority; we support them throughout the placement with our unrivalled sector knowledge.
This support is essential to helping interim managers succeed and provide exceptional value for money to the authority. Paying for an interim manager in this economic climate is a big investment, and you are right to expect the best return for your money. APSE will work with the interim manager to make sure that this is being achieved from project start to finish.
APSE is an ethical organisation offering interim management solutions. We are owned by our members, who consist of local authorities across the UK. APSE is not for- profit, meaning that we genuinely are looking for the best deal for local authorities, rather than answering to shareholders.
All our interim managers are experienced practitioners with extensive knowledge of their service area. They are supported through the APSE network with access to seminars, advisory groups and briefings for up-to-date knowledge of key issues and good practice in the field. We have a dedicated Principal Advisor resource for all the various service areas, meaning that our project knowledge is based on cutting edge local government thinking.
We have 12 years of benchmarking data through our Performance Networks service, and our experience in using this to undertake baseline assessments of services is unavailable to others.We offer good value for money. In most projects, our fees are more than recovered by the first year savings through the implementation of our proposed strategies and recommendations. We have a proven track record with 100% of clients surveyed this year rating the completed project as excellent or good.
