- Local Government
Local Authorities are some of the largest, most complex organisations in the United Kingdom.With a client base that includes every community in the country, they provide a range of vital services that have a tremendous impact upon our everyday lives.
- Central Government
The pressures on central government to deliver increased levels of public service, whilst dealing with cuts in public spending and reduced numbers of staff, are growing all the time. More than ever, as the focus is placed on departments and agencies, the ability to deliver within tight budgets and timescales is essential to ensure the value for money ethos is adhered to.
- Sports Business
In recent years interim management has been taken up by the sports business sector, which is seeing the benefits of using professional management skills and resources on an interim basis to deal with projects, expansion, development and improvement.

I contacted Bambos Eracleous at Odgers Interim as we needed support to find an Interim Regeneration Consultant for three months. This role was to advise and shape how the London Borough of Lewisham will potentially create the right strategy, models, vehicles and delivery framework to ensure the council has the right resources to deliver its regeneration agenda. Bambos provided a strong shortlist with candidates from both a commercial and public sector background. As a result we appointed Claudette Forbes who, during her time with us, did an excellent job of fulfilling the assignment brief. I would use Bambos and Odgers Interim for any future interim requirements.
