The duration of interim positions can be flexible to meet your needs.

There are several factors that make interim management the popular resourcing option that it has become today:

1. Speed. Interim managers can be in place within days as opposed to weeks (essential when time constraints are paramount).

2. Experience. Interim managers will be more than qualified for the position they are taking on and will therefore be stepping down in responsibility. They will also have past experience of similar challenges to the ones they are about to face. They should be equipped to have an immediate effect and be productive from the outset, minimising the risk of things going wrong and, more importantly, ensuring success.

3. Objectivity. Unencumbered by any previous involvement in company processes or staff relationships, interim managers should provide a fresh perspective and be free to concentrate on what's best for the business.

4. Commitment. Interim managers are typically committed to an interim career. For them, this is never just something they are doing until a suitable permanent position is found. A good interim manager should enjoy the challenge of the different assignments, take great pride in maintaining the highest standards while realising that they are only ever as good as their last job.

5. Cost. The employer is not required to pay extras such as National Insurance, pensions, private healthcare, company car sickness or death in service and contracts can be terminated at short notice.
