The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) identified that there were key skills gaps within their delivery plan for the soon-to-be procured cloud-based system (PMRV) and National Kyoto Protocol Registry IT System. Coupled with the implementation of these new IT systems, BEIS also identified a lack of required support within the Policy, Communications and Stakeholder Engagement workstreams across several teams (Digital & Development, Industrial Energy and Industrial Strategy).
With the traditional approach of using contractors being costly, and recruitment of permanent staff with the required skills challenging due to salary expectations within the bands available, Albany Beck had the opportunity to create a cost effective, time efficient and sustainable solution through their Employed Consultant Model, the Pioneer Programme.

Stakeholder Engagement & Communication
Through a competitive tender process via the CCS Digital Marketplace, Albany Beck were successfully appointed as the chosen supplier to provide support through their Pioneer Programme, and in turn, the use of Albany Beck Practitioners (senior consultants).
By deploying Practitioners, BEIS were able to successfully address the need for key expertise and skills that were required immediately. This, alongside the Pioneer Programme, provided a longer term and cost-effective solution to develop in-house capability, ensure knowledge retention through the option of transitioning consultants to full time Civil Servants at the end of the engagement – free of charge – and in line with the relevant salary bands.
Pioneers were deployed into both BEIS’ Project management and Policy teams, all of whom had a bespoke and on-going training plan to ensure their skills and effectiveness from day one and thereafter.
