Pauline Radcliffe

Radcliffe Consultancy Services


I run a small consultancy practice based in Glasgow, Scotland and operating across Scotland and the UK. My work is driven by the principles of fairness and justice and with a team of associates I work across three areas:

  • Developing: scoping and building organisations, strategies and projects from inception. I have specific expertise in governance, board and trustee training and mentoring and troubleshooting where organisations have run into challenges. I also have over 25 years’ experience of policy scoping, service mapping, strategy development and business planning.
  • Enabling: organisations and projects to make change happen through taking stock, reviewing policies systems and services and supporting organisations to make necessary changes. With associates, we use research and evaluation tools, facilitate peer learning and service user co-production tools and introduce effective performance management.
  • Delivering project management and facilitation services to enable shared understanding, better outcomes, partnership and relationship building and effective oversight of the organisation’s operations and strategy.
  • My experiences spans over 25 years’ of working with and for the public, third and government sectors, including leadership experience of NGOs and within the civil service. I am particularly inspired by the work of social enterprise, charities and the public sector to transform the economy to one focused on wellbeing, identity and place.
