Why interim?
  • Independent: The impartiality of an interim manager means he or she can often bring previously unseen ideas to the table and give valuable clarity to an organisation’s longer-term strategy.
  • Flexible: Interim managers are usually paid on a daily rate and can often offer flexibility in terms of their availability, working hours and work location, allowing you to tailor the usage to suit your specific needs.
  • Focused: Interim managers are results oriented professionals and are used to working towards a specific deliverable outcome, which is often highly time constrained.
  • Experienced: An interim manager will work closely with your existing team, introducing new techniques and helping to up-skill your staff.
  • Lasting Change: An effective interim manager will help to instil best practice into an organisation, which will create positive and lasting change, long after the assignment has reached fruition.
When to use an interim?
  • Change & transformationInterim managers are highly effective when an organisation is going through a change to policy or process. Their impartiality and experience can help to formulate a plan that may have not been spotted by internal stakeholders.

  • Permanent hire coverThe recruitment process for key permanent members of staff invariably takes many months (due to factors such as lengthy notice periods, scarcity of candidates and simply wanting the “right person”). During this time, an interim manager is often the best solution, as they are used to seamlessly slotting into an organisation and hit the ground running with minimal training.

  • Business turnaround: When businesses reach a point of needing crisis management skills, interim managers have the expertise to quickly review a situation and produce an action plan to achieve the desired outcomes. The interim manager in question may then be retained by the organisation to implement the plan and make ongoing amendments as required during the process.

  • Additional resource: In business critical, time-sensitive situations, one of the most efficient solutions is to hire an interim manager for short-term additional support. These contracts offer flexibility, allowing the business to dictate the initial contract length and vary it where necessary.

  • Management Consulting: Interim managers are often used for the analysis of a specific issue or wider organisational problems with a view to develop action plans for improvement. In many cases the interim managers are then retained to implement their suggested process.

  • Specialist skill shortage: Interim managers who possess a niche skillset (gained from working in specific industry sectors or a particular job role) may be utilised when an organisation lacks one or a number of key skills in a particular area of the business.
