Posted: 12th January 2017

anna-hammond-240x260What is a Head of Service – a strategic leader, or senior manager delivering operational excellence?

Many organisations struggle to define the expectations of the Head of Service role and of course, the requirements will vary from organisation to organisation.  This level of role can be challenging to fill as some existing Heads of Service will be focussed on securing their first Director position whilst others who are currently working at the tier below may lack the strategic exposure some recruiters are looking for.

At Altair, in addition to our comprehensive senior executive and non-executive director recruitment service, we can add value to your Head of Service recruitment campaign by helping you define what this role needs to deliver for you, both now and in the future. We have the network to tap into up and coming talent, and we can help to motivate and inspire those individuals to want to become part of your future success.

We’ve worked with many organisations to help them understand their succession planning requirements; what the Head of Service role needs to deliver, what the key skills and attributes of the successful candidate will be; and what success will look like for this postholder.  We see this as essential grounding to recruiting the best person for your organisation and ensuring their success in delivering what your organisation needs.  We also believe that optimising success and enabling continuous improvement can be enhanced through a range of development interventions such as offered in our talent management offering including, coaching, 360-degree feedback and tailored stretch programmes.
