We have been at the forefront of governance thinking for a decade, working across the public, third and independent sectors.
GGI Development and Research LLP is the ‘for profit’ consultancy that supports GGI as an institute. We are a highly-respected, independent consultancy, rated by the Financial Times as a top management consultancy for four years in a row, since 2018, with a commitment to changing the world through what we do. Our main market sector is in healthcare, and the majority of the clients we work with are in the NHS although we also have a significant presence in higher education. Other clients we have worked with include national sporting bodies and professional organisations. Our leadership have all held senior positions in large, complex public sector organisations.
We support significant thought leadership programmes in the public sector such as through the National Commission for governance in the public sector, the Johannesburg-based Good Governance Academy (a global influencer) and of course we host the annual GGI Festival of Governance. We are actively building networks and communities of practice in key issues that are growing in importance such as population health management. We work with others, such as the University of Chester, where we have recently started to collaborate to build a regional centre of excellence in public sector governance. The post holder will be part of GGI’s contribution to working with the National Commission on the development of ideas that will support the public sector over the coming decade.
To also note GGI made a significant contribution to the national effort during the emergency phase of the COVID19 pandemic through extending our advisory service as free for NHS and third sector organisations, hosting national webinars for NHS board members and developing 100 daily bulletins to capture original thinking on governance in times of crisis for NHS and third sector boards.
The Institute element of GGI’s work is what makes us different from working for just any other consultancy. Through the Institute we return significant value to the public and third sector through our research and publications programmes, our development events and networks and through our lively CSR programme.
How we work:
Our ethos runs through everything we do. We are proud of our values which shape not just our work with clients, but the way the company is structured and run.
We support our clients by using sound, evidence-based thinking and deep knowledge of the sector to add value by what we do, often creating bespoke programmes of work. It means that whoever works for us must enjoy the challenge of variety, be flexible in their approach to clients, and be active in turning our ethos into practice always.
We have recently reorganised to focus our work even more towards impact for our clients. Our work is now orientated around service lines, for example core governance or engagement, and framing our work about the difference we can make to clients rather than describing the particular methods we use to provide our services. We have developed a matrix management approach which values both the holistic development of GGI and at the same time the value we add to clients.
GGI is committed to ethical, inclusive and legally-compliant recruitment and employment practices. We encourage and support applications from candidates without discrimination and operate an equal opportunity workspace.
