Interim Management

Multilingual Interim Managers

If you’re looking for an experienced executive to plug an urgent gap, support a change program or strengthen a project team, we have a large network of multilingual interim managers who are available at short notice for short-term assignments such as:

  • Mergers, acquisitions, turnaround, restructuring, change management
  • New subsidiary start-up/new division launch
  • Interim cover until a permanent candidate is available
  • Short-term requirement for additional management skills

There are vast differences between countries in terms of legislation and business practice and lack of communication and misunderstanding are often the reasons behind conflicts, unresolved business issues and underperformance. An Interim Manager who speaks the language and who is at ease with local customs and business culture will be able to hit the ground running.

About Interim Management

Interim management is the temporary supply of an individual with management expertise into an organisation. These individuals are referred to as ‘interim managers’ and will typically be experienced business leaders who are able to manage an organisation through a period of change or transformation, provide stability to a business following the sudden departure of a senior leader, or provide a highly specialised skill set which a business may not have internally.

An organisation may choose to pursue the interim management route because the role in question is not a permanent position or a permanent executive/manager cannot be found fast enough.

Interim managers are typically hired for three to nine months and help organisations who are undergoing major change, trying to implement a critical strategy or are looking to plug a critical management gap.

The Benefits Of Interim Managers

  1. Rapid availability – Interim managers are available to start in days with minimum recruitment or termination formalities.
  2. Experience -Interim managers are typically overqualified for the role, meaning they can hit the ground running and operate efficiently with little need for guidance.
  3. Results – Short term performance demands focus, and interim managers are used to being judged on results and accountability.
  4. Knowledge – With a wealth of experience comes skill, contacts and knowledge that will be transferred to your organisation and remain long after they have left.
  5. Objectivity – Having no previous history with your business means they can look at the situation objectively and with clarity.While sensitive to the company’s ethos, they will not be constrained by politics or personalities.
