Our Experience

Proximity specialises in tailoring advice to your organisation based on your size, function and risk appetite.

Our Advisors work in multidisciplinary teams to provide you with practical advice on the right structures, delegations, frameworks and efficiency strategies to suit your purpose and maturity level.

We are experts in:

  • Advising on departmental and agency governance models
  • Capability and functional reviews of both big and small organisations
  • Identifying efficiencies and improvements
  • Reviewing and implementing new delegation arrangements.

We will never take a one-size-fits all approach.

Skills and expertise

Our Advisors have either worked in the public sector or have specialised in advising government and utilities.

This means we understand the complexities and ambiguity of the environment in which you are working.

Our Advisors have worked at all levels of government and in a large number of public sector agencies.

Our expertise ranges from the most senior levels – former Secretaries, Chief Counsels and Senior Executive Service officials – to program, policy, corporate and regulatory officers.

Having this range of expertise on tap means we can build a bespoke team for your project that has the right level of expertise and experience.
