SOLACE Enterprises has been a trusted provider of executive level interim and permanent recruitment services and consultancy and leadership development for the last 20 years. We work primarily with Local Authorities and increasingly with key partners – health sector, police, fire and rescue services and voluntary organisations. In the private and not–for–profit sectors, we work for housing associations and companies who work with (or wish to work with) the public sector. We have also worked with national bodies such as the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG), the Audit Commission, Local Government Leadership Centre and the LGID (formerly IDeA).
We have built up an unrivalled knowledge of the sector: the democratic context, the management challenge, the community expectations, the partnership agenda and the statutory responsibilities. And our experience of working with local government’s most successful organisations means that we are able to bring a unique perspective and insight to assignments.
We are part of the SOLACE group of businesses and are solely owned by SOLACE (Society of Local Authority Chief Executives and Senior Managers). We operate commercially on `not-for-profit` business principles reinvesting any surplus income to fund public sector research and policy development.
