        oneSource – Director of Finance

        oneSource is currently the largest public sector shared service in London and one of the largest in the country.

        It was originally formed by the London Boroughs of Havering and Newham by bringing together 22 services and 1350 staff, with the London Borough of Bexley joining the collaborative partnership in 2016. oneSource is governed by Members through a joint committee which receives key reports and makes strategic decisions about its operation.

        Brief/Problem

        Allen Lane was retained to recruit a talented Director of Finance to champion and drive transformation not only in oneSource but across Havering, Newham and Bexley councils (primary stakeholders in the finance service), effectively utilising business intelligence to anticipate future needs and provide a more responsive service. We were looking for a visionary individual who would strive to make oneSource known as the model of all that’s best in modern public services by:

        • Setting ambitious plans for service
        • Continuously improving service
        • Embracing innovation
        • Raising awareness of the oneSource service within public services
        • Exploiting commercial opportunities to grow the business.

        Approach/research

        This was a unique opportunity, taking up a brand new role in newly set up organisation. We took to market, generating interest though engaging potential candidates through the vision of the organisation and how it would benefit local councils in the future.

        Results/achievement

        We were thrilled that there were three appointable candidates in our shortlist, and the new incumbent is making a massive impact and successfully steering the shape the organisation.
