What is an Interim Manager?

Interim managers are experienced high level executives contracted by companies on a short-term basis in order to deliver a specific assignment. They are appointed on their proven track record and are able to begin work at short notice. They will work for a pre-agreed period of time or until a chosen objective has been achieved. The average duration of an interim management assignment is around 5 months, although they can last up to one year. 

Why use an interim manager?

There are a number of reasons why an interim manager may be appointed.  There could be a shortage of skills within the company following the departure of a key member of the senior staff; they can be appointed to fill in during a short term absence; or their specialist skills may be used to drive a change in management processes.

Interim managers are often appointed in situations where experience is required to guide a business through a difficult period. An interim manager’s position outside the politics and hierarchy of the company allows them to view the situation objectively and make decisions purely to benefit the organisation as a whole.  Although they are only a short term appointment, the decisions they make can have long term positive impacts.
