PROFESSIONAL SERVICES RECRUITMENT - The best appointment you'll make

Colin Grieve

Director of Business Change

Looking after W&A's Business Change recruitment since 2009, Colin’s area of expertise covers a broad range of Change Management disciplines including Programme & Project Management, Business Analysis, ERP, Strategy & Transformation and Agile Design & Delivery. Colin supports large change projects for a number of clients across the financial services spectrum including Life & Pensions, Retail Banking, Asset Management and Fintech by introducing top-tier contractors and consultants from his extensive network of contacts, gained as a result of over 20 years’ experience in the local market.

Colin’s approach is very simple; utilising that extensive network in order to bring together the best skills in the market to support the successful delivery of complex change in the simplest and most expedient way possible. In an ever-changing market like financial services, with the impact of continuous regulatory change, market consolidation and the digitisation of many services, it is vital that organisations have access to the right people and the right engagement model to help supplement their in-house Change capability with expertise from the external market. Colin’s experience in the Scottish market means that the majority of placements he makes are with contractors he has worked with multiple times over the past 20 years, often providing teams of experts who have successfully worked together on previous engagements. In these instances, the client is assured that they are engaging a fit-for-purpose team which will deliver the right solution for the client. A much more cost-effective model than engaging a consulting firm.

Outside of work Colin spends most of his time with his wife and 2 young daughters and is an avid sports fan, particularly football and golf. As his ageing legs tell him most weeks that it’s time to play less of the former and more of the latter, we might even see some much-needed improvement in his golf in future.. But don’t hold your breath!
