Curium Solutions – Simplified Change Management, Birmingham, West Midlands

Robbie Holden

Senior Consultant

What is your role at Curium?

I’m a Senior Consultant in the Change Delivery side of the business, so l support clients with landing change in their organisations. I specialise in project management and delivery, process mapping, and the financial services sector.

What is your background?

I worked at Barclays Bank where I held a number of change roles, ranging from very technology-orientated projects to leading large business transformation projects. I have also worked within operations delivering continuous improvement change where the focus was on improving the end-to-end process.

What work are you most proud of?

I have a couple of examples. One is the delivery of Amazon Click and Collect Lockers to the Barclays branch network. It was great to land something tangible in a branch that had a really positive impact on customers (increase in engagement) and well as on colleagues.

I also completed a 90-day control plan for the consumer lending part of Barclays, gaining control and leading the plan. This involved six main workstreams, ensuring milestones were being met and if not, putting steps in place to mitigate the impacts.

What is distinctive about Curium?

What attracted me to Curium was the focus on development and the team culture. Having now joined, it’s great to see that these values really are core to how the business operates.

How do you spend your free time?

Generally anything around sport, either watching or playing, but specifically rugby and tennis. I also love travelling. My wife and I have a map of the world where you scratch off the various countries you visit, and we’re trying our best to fill it in. Finally, looking after our dog who we rescued two years or so ago – he’s a bit of a ‘challenge’ so always keeps us on our toes!
