Our rigorous selection process

Our interim leaders are diverse individuals and can be interim managers, project managers, independent consultants or technical experts. These interims are also likely to be at the forefront of managing major change; coaching and mentoring those earmarked for the top, or successfully turning things around where others may have failed. With experience and expertise like this it is no surprise that our interims are often hand-picked by decision makers to lead new initiatives.

Regardless of their background we put each candidate through the same rigorous assessment and vetting process and our standards, like yours, are extremely high with demonstrable results a key requirement.
