Charitee brings 25 years of experience leading major reforms and transformations within the public sector, and an extensive background in complex consulting assignments across government and large enterprises.

Charitee has extensive experience in a wide range of organisational review and improvement disciplines, including leading large scale change and transformation projects. As a former Australian Public Servant, having held roles at the SES Bands 1 and 2, Charitee delivers unique insights as a leader within Grosvenor’s Public Sector Advisory practice. 

Charitee’s success is characterised by high level critical thinking, genuine stakeholder engagement, complex problem solving and future-state design. All of which enable her to build strong relationships, frame the business problems, delve deep to uncover the true root of an issue or need and to design and implement improved business and operating models.

During a career that has spanned the Departments of Human Services, Foreign Affairs and Trade, Parliamentary Services, and Industry, Science and Innovation, Charitee has engaged with diverse stakeholder groups demonstrating her ability to discern nuanced understandings of government, departments and community groups. She has managed and led organisational design reviews, complex simulation and advanced analysis and the development of strategic and corporate plans.

‘Having worked with Grosvenor 10 years ago, and then rejoining the firm recently, I realise that coming back here is like coming home. This place is a perfect values fit for me: there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach here. Being able to help our clients frame the business problem is critical. All of our work is tested against ‘What is the so what factor here for the client?’ This is central to our thinking and creates enormous value-add. Makes me feel good about the work we do’
