Reflecting on 2018

As we near the end of 2018 we reflect on what’s been an interesting and challenging year in the outsourcing sector. The turmoil with Interserve, the demise of Carillion and travails with others has made for a bumpy ride but where there is change, there is opportunity. Firms are still seeking high quality talent and Macallam have nearly a 20 year record and network servicing the Boards and management teams of the top industry organisations to draw upon. Carillion’s fall did not result in a flood of talent at management level as many were transitioned under the same contracts to alternative providers. Genuine proven leadership, operational and commercial ability is still in high demand.

As well as Facilities businesses, our work has focussed on Infrastructure. Macallam has always maintained a record in Construction and Engineering alongside Energy and FM. This year, we have worked across the world in places such as Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Europe. Notable assignments have included –

•             MD of a challenging Middle East JV, COO and

•             GM roles for a global energy infrastructure equipment manufacturer

•             European Business Development for a leading Biogas Plant design contractor

•             Commercial Director to lead work winning

•             QS and estimating teams for a fast developing specialist SME construction business

•             Operations Director of a £200m Energy division and working with a UK leader in technical

               EfW projects.

I am proud of our ability to service often large complex and challenging business, to have the expertise and “nous” to understand their commercial drivers and find talent to support them and I am very thankful for the support of our customers.

Looking forward to 2019 – What are we wanting to do and how may this help you?

  • Talented People – we are interested to gain a better understanding of our candidate market seeking challenging roles, so please do contact us. We are available to talk and will always make time to discuss and meet. We assist senior people through our Personal Career Transition (PCT) service. This has been extremely helpful for executives seeking bespoke career advice with our specialist market knowledge, rather than a generalist provider. Please follow the link for more information 

  • Service Quality - we are preferred suppliers to many businesses and want to increase the standard and quality of our service. Feedback is always welcome from you, and we recognise we can always improve.

  • New business – we want to work with you in your organisation, understand your needs and be a partner. If you have resourcing needs, please let us know of them. We also see opportunity in the tier 2 and SME market and these firms can grow strongly as specialist providers particularly if customers perceive risks in larger management organisations.

  • Interim Management – we have a dedicated and growing Interim business. This has been established for over 10 years. We appoint proven Interim’s and give advice to people thinking of an interim career and getting them started. See  

We are excited for the coming year and look forward to working with you.

From all the team at Macallam and Macallam Interim - we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
