What they say about CIPFA-Penna

"After 20 years directly employed in local government, I made the step into the interim market in the summer of 2015. Meeting with Phillipa and Azfar at CIPFA-Penna was such a refreshing change. They listened to what I wanted, and were incredibly supportive, within a week of meeting them, I had an interview lined up and was successfully appointed to an interim role.

The entire CIPFA Penna team are incredibly supportive.  Azfar always returns calls if he's unavailable, keeps in touch regularly, and there are also regular networking opportunities and briefings on relevant information for interims.  The back office runs incredibly efficiently, billing is straightforward and payments are made as scheduled.  For anyone looking for to move into the interim market in local government, I recommend looking no further than CIPFA-Penna."
