Why Interim Management?

Organisations typically choose interim managers either to fill roles that are temporary or to fill critical staffing gaps when a permanent employee cannot be found fast enough.  Although they are frequently called 'consultants', interim managers differ from consultants because they serve in a more hands-on capacity.
These organisations quickly realise many benefits from using interim managers:

  • Start in days, with minimum recruitment and termination formalities
  • Welcome results-linked remuneration
  • Are usually overqualified, bringing tremendous experience to address your business issues
  • Deliver consistently and quickly
  • Will transfer skills, contacts and experience to your team, which will remain long after they have left
  • Have sensitivity to your company's ethos but not constrained by its politics, personalities, or protocols
  • Can be given a critical task on which to focus
  • Help keep down permanent head count
  • Highly cost-effective

Our Interim Management Process

Our consultants work alongside you and the interim executive throughout the duration of the interim recruitment assignment to ensure a successful outcome. Our process has five steps:

  1. We start by developing a detailed brief against the requirements you have for the role. This helps us to identify the right interim manager in terms of background, experience and expertise.
  2. Using our network of experienced interim managers alongside our database of senior leaders, we identify and approach the candidates who are available and best suited to the role.
  3. We then send across a shortlist of 2 to 4 candidates for your role, and assist in reference taking and can provide a venue for interviews if required.
  4. EO oversees the contractual process and the agreement of terms between the client and the selected candidate.
  5. At the end of the assignment we request feedback from you to ensure that you are satisfied with the process and the performance of the interim manager.
