People & Culture

Developing organsational culture and having the right people strategies in place is more important than ever.

Interim Staffing

For a variety of reasons, institutions can find themselves in need of interim cover for senior roles.

Halpin’s unique network of Consulting Fellows, Senior Advisors and friends in the sector enables us to provide interim staffing across most professional service areas of a university.

In the first instance, we’d always recommend a discussion to talk through your needs and how Halpin might be able to help.
