Interim Management with Guide Dogs
Guide Dogs had seen income double in the last decade to over £130m, enabled by a fundraising success story, which resulted in them becoming a top 10 UK fundraising charity in the process.
The growth in income supported the organisations long term ‘By My Side’ strategy, which was designed to transform service provision. In order to successfully deliver the ‘By My Side’ strategy, Guide Dogs recognised the need to appoint a new Director of Technology and Transformation Director. CEO, Tom Wright, tasked Hansen Filler with identifying the best candidates for the roles.
Hansen Filler successfully placed the Technology Director and the Transformation Director, with both candidates starting within a month of the initial briefing and going on to play a critical role in delivering the Guide Dogs strategy.
