PA Consulting welcomes Keith Joughin as a partner in Public Services and Human Capital

12 February 2021

Keith Joughin joins PA Consulting (PA), the consultancy that’s bringing ingenuity to life, as a partner in PA’s public services and human capital team.

Keith has over 17 years’ experience in creating and delivering a range of human capital solutions, working collaboratively with clients from the public, private and development services sector. He is a specialist in large scale business transformation from a people and organisational perspective, particularly in change management, operating models, workforce transformation and learning.

Before joining PA, Keith was a Managing Director at Accenture, where he led multiple consulting practices, including Talent and Organisation for its Health and Public Service business in the UK and Europe and the New-Skilling and Learning practice in the UK. Keith brings experience working with a range of public sector clients, across policing, defence, revenue, customs, social services and health.

Keith is passionate about working with clients on their critical workforce topics, such as how organisations identify and build the right skills and create a learning culture, how the workforce can operate alongside intelligent technology and how organisations need to manage and respond to change in a rapidly evolving and uncertain world. Keith is based in the North West and passionate about the levelling-up agenda and the role of the public sector in driving this.

PA’s Public Services experts combine problem solving excellence with insights from across the public sector and private industry. They work closely with government departments, local leaders and policing and borders organisations to create a better living and working environment for citizens. From achieving the impossible with the UK Ventilator Challenge, to helping vulnerable people stay independent during the COVID-19 outbreak with Argenti, an innovative approach to technology-enabled care, our experts provide support and advice amid global uncertainty and change to make resources go further and improve lives.

Mark Brett, Head of Public Services at PA, said: “We are delighted to welcome Keith to PA’s Public Services Partner team. Keith will focus on growing our human capital capabilities across public services. His expertise in managing large scale business transformations from a people and organisational perspective will amplify our ability to support our clients.”

Keith added: “I am thrilled to join PA and work with clients across public services on their people and organisational challenges, particularly during such uncertain and unprecedented times, where we need to be more human-centric than ever.”
