Our vision for transforming public services

Our vision is to help the UK public sector to save money, enabling it to enhance the services that improve our quality of life, protect people and the environment and deliver better outcomes for UK citizens and businesses.

To support this, we undertook a comprehensive digital transformation programme, which included the implementation of a common IT platform across the UK public sector. We are using intelligent solutions to deliver savings to the public sector, which means more funds to invest in front line services, more teachers, more Police officers, more support for the people that need it the most.

We provide a broad range of business support services, including Recruitment and Resourcing, HR, Payroll, IT, Contact Centre and Finance and Accounting for Government. Military and Police forces. We also provide additional specialist client-specific services including consulting services.

With six UK Centres of Excellence and, by redesigning systems using digital and RPA solutions we are transforming the way these services are delivered - providing better value for our clients and the UK taxpayer.
