We partner with our clients to design and execute commercial and operational transformation programmes ensuring tangible outcomes are realised, sustainable and aligned to strategic business goals.
We were recommended for both Digital and Operations in the 2023 Financial Times & Statista’s ‘UK Leading Management Consultants’.

In today’s environment of high inflation, high interest rates, and tight global supply chains, firms are under pressure from every direction. Now, as never before, keeping costs low, while boosting employee and capital productivity, are vital to firm success and growth. Our comprehensive service offering will help you maximise operational efficiencies, improve bottom-line financial performance, and – most importantly – achieve sustainable, long-term, stakeholder-focused growth.

Our approach emphasises a flexible, yet repeatable, process of data gathering and analysis, focused along the three axes of People, Processes, and Systems. Our expertise lies in the following areas:

  • Cost assessment across your organisation’s processes, expenditures, and operational design
  • Operational efficiency improvements through close collaboration with your teams to streamline workflows and productivity
  • Financial management strategies to develop robust budget controls, forecasting, and tracking practices
  • Integrating predictive and analytical technologies to enhance workforce productivity, allowing your workforce to focus on high-value activities while automating low-value ones
  • Energy and resource efficiencies to drive sustainable performance, always keeping an eye on eco-friendly best practices that minimise waste and maximise productivity
  • Training, benchmarking, and monitoring frameworks that will help your team stay on target with your goals

Above all, we understand that excellence is an ongoing and personal journey, where the first steps are always the hardest, to instil cost discipline and focus across the organisation. As such, we do not bring “cookie-cutter” approaches to our work – instead, we tailor our solutions to your needs, bringing in teams with decades of experience in your industry and sector.

Our mission is to help our clients optimise external costs, maximise the value of the supply chain and ensure their Procurement Team becomes an integral partner within the business.

Our team of experienced and passionate procurement experts can offer services tailored to your needs.

  • Opportunity assessment: quantitative analysis, price benchmarking, contract analysis & baselining

  • Market analysis & supplier capability assessment
  • Sourcing strategy & sourcing plans

What makes us different is that we deliver value above and beyond cost savings.  We make sure benefits remain sustainable!

  • We engage with business stakeholders, strengthen relationships and embed, so they are integral to the solution.
  • We stay way after the sourcing process to ensure benefits are realised; helping your procurement team to become a valuable partner in the business.
  • Fact-based decisions based on advanced analytics
  • We believe procurement should not be a barrier to additional sales, sustainability or innovation, it should enable these

Every day more companies start their journey to design strategies for reducing negative environmental impact due to their operations. Companies are prioritising Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) factors as core decision making criteria for their investment decisions. Customers are now demanding that the brands they purchase are sustainable.

Thriving sustainability strategies should encompass actions from various fronts, such as improvements in water and waste management and carbon dioxide (CO2) reductions, and be tailored according to the industry or sector in which the Company operates.

If the strategy is well designed and executed, companies may benefit from cost reductions and efficiency improvements that can increase their overall value. Moreover, they will be prepared to comply with coming legal and governmental regulations. Curzon has designed and implemented strategies for carbon reduction, waste and water management, which support our clients’ sustainability goals and increases their performance.

The net zero journey: Routemap or compass

Where is the water industry now and how do we get to our destination?
