The Covid-19 pandemic has necessitated a rapid response by all: from city leaders to families to small businesses. Acts of heroism have been equally as heartening as the health effects have been devastating. Our thoughts are with those affected, here and abroad. Our challenge remains responding at pace and finding effective ways to build a better tomorrow.



Our team is partnering with various public sector organisations. We have delivered community hubs. We have developed data analytics systems to measure the impact and inform decision-making. We have kept critical construction projects operating safely. We are leading the safe reopening of high streets and projects to reclaim the public realm for walking and cycling.


Recovery & Reimagine

With so many commercial assumptions questioned, income streams disrupted, service demands increased, vulnerable communities in need of help, we are taking a proactive approach to thinking about what comes next. Our multi-disciplinary teams are working with partners to reimagine local economies, public services, and the urban fabric so they serve the needs of local people and the planet. We are collaborating with peers on the logistics of a recovery, ranging from building new homes, economic resilience, town centre plans, creative reuse of assets, data analytics, service redesign, masterplanning, smart cities agenda, new forms of local partnership, and new deals with Government.


The Inner Circle team have been trusted advisors to numerous city leaders for ten years, having been born during the Great Recession. We remain dependable, resourceful, creative, and tenacious delivery partners.


Please stay safe,

The Directors of Inner Circle

We pride and differentiate ourselves on the quality of our people. Our combined cross sector experience, the ability to understand client problems, to intelligently challenge, and to act flexibly, creatively and with integrity. We all have an intolerance for inertia and a desire to help our clients progress rapidly toward their goals.

Our unique approach allows us to bring the collective talent of our diverse team to bear on every single project.


The cornerstone of this approach is our Friday Morning Meeting. 


Inner Circle is a project and management consultancy. We work closely with public and private sector clients to deliver their objectives; which are often preparing their organisations for change or delivering growth. This may be at conception of a project, or a moment of change or stagnation, often when there are no obvious answers.


We believe that the best solutions are yet to be discovered and the best outcomes yet to be delivered.

Our approach is to first spend time gaining an intimate understanding of our clients business, considerations and priorities. Then we define and tackle the knotty problems with a relentless focus on delivery. 


We provide a broad range of services to public and private organisations in the sectors of corporate transformation, regeneration, construction, education, social care and health. These include project and programme management, property consultancy, change management and strategy development and strategic advice.

"We asked Inner Circle to scope a regeneration programme that could promote growth and tackle the unprecedented funding challenges faced by the Council. They delivered exactly what we needed and more. They had a great fresh perspective on long-held challenges, and were able to clearly demonstrate the financial impact development could have. Their creative yet commercial approach enabled us to quickly secure the programme mandate from Members. We invited them to continue working with us and Inner Circle are now providing the expertise and momentum we need to deliver real change for the Isle of Wight."
