We have the skills and networks to help you find experienced interim leaders. Whether you are creating a more agile workforce, have a short-term problem to solve or your leadership structure is in transition, we have the skills and networks to help you find experienced candidates that thrive in demanding, change led environments.

We are hugely experienced in placing interim leaders who have the gravitas and communication skills to help you deliver transformative agendas.

Investing heavily in sourcing, developing and supporting the very best interims, we build strong and personal relationships with them to understand their areas of expertise and link them successfully to our clients.

Working across government, regulation, not for profit, education, housing and health we specialise in providing executive interim leaders to organisations that need strategic leadership at times of change.

Our interim leaders work across a range of disciplines. These include Chief Executives; Resources; Finance; Operations; HR and OD; Commercial; Technology and transformation; Social Care; Property & Development; and Governance.

When to consider Interim leadership

From crisis management, skills gaps, large projects, technology changes and adding capacity to existing teams, Interim leaders provide strong proven leadership during times of change and for strategically critical initiatives.

Interim recruitment process

While we place interims at a pace your organisation needs, our process remains comprehensive, and encompasses:

  • an initial briefing to define position parameters
  • an attraction strategy
  • leveraging our active C-Level interim database
  • a rigorous shortlisting phase
  • thoughtful support through interviews and offer management

Post-placement, our commitment extends to aftercare, ensuring ongoing success through regular progress reviews with both the interim leader and the line manager.
