What is Interim Management

Interim Management Overview
Interim management is the provision of senior executives into roles on a short-term basis. Companies often use Interim Managers as a way to inject critical management competence into their organisation at pace. It could be to help up-skill their teams, improve systems or lead an entire transformation programme.
Other times, it’s to provide executive cover – for example during maternity leave or long-term illness. Projects typically run for between 6 and 12 months. Interim support can also be a way to bring onboard much-needed strategic support during times of uncertainty or new ventures.
Interim Executives
Our Interim Executives come from Head of Function or Board level, and are used to provide leadership, cover absent executives, deliver operational efficiency, manage mergers and acquisitions, turnarounds or other change related programmes.
Most Interim Executives are actually over-skilled for the roles they are chosen for. This means they hit the ground running and bring results fast. All our Interim Executives have a proven track record both at senior level and as interims within businesses.

Interim management is the provision of senior executives who will go in to an organisation on a short term basis. They typically are covering areas such as strategy, leadership, change and transformation, operations and also they are brought on board to provide niche expertise for clients.
Unlike consultants an interim managers will go in to the role and will act as your permanent executive would. They are focused on delivering against the brief, they are often responsible for budgets and they are often responsible for your team within the organisation.
Our senior interim executives typically work at advisory, board or head of function level. They’re typically over qualified for the role they’ll work on and this allows them to quickly transition in to the role and to be able to hit the ground running.
