Interim Management

The seniority and expertise of our consultants provides us with the ability to understand your specific need, the challenges your organisation is facing and the issues at stake.

2024 European interim management market report

Our European interim management market report provides a comprehensive overview of the interim recruitment market, organisational issues that interim managers can solve and anticipated costs for organisations across Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland and UK.

Why use an interim manager?

Organisations increasingly appreciate the effectiveness and cost efficiencies of interim managers. There is a growing awareness that such executives can be used not just as a 'crisis resource', but as a planned resource that does not tie the company to the commitments of employment contracts. Interim managers can offer great strategic value in addition to tactical results.

Is independence calling?

Today’s labour market demands for more transparency and shows an increasing need for interim managers, both experts and generalists in various disciplines. Starting on an independent employment basis brings flexibility, more control over your work-life balance and the possibility to earn more.
