Consultants & Interim Managers
Distinctions between these roles are usually blurred but generally Consultants are retained on fees and for predetermined periods to solve, create or add value to strategic issues whilst Interim Managers are similarly hired to resolve on-going operational matters or to deliver projects.
Those that perform these roles share a number of characteristics including prior seniority, political neutrality, demonstrable managerial skills, a record of timely delivery, budgetary consciousness, academic qualification, professional qualification and qualification by experience in the solving of problems or the successful implementation of complex business solutions.
Typically a Consultant may be hired to provide knowledge and expertise to facilitate major organisational change. An Interim Manager may be required to cover planned or unexpected gaps in management resulting from sickness, resignation or difficulties in recruiting the right person to a critical post.
Appointing people to these roles requires the ability and knowledge to fully appreciate the technical aspects of senior managerial positions and the experience and professional instincts to link an individual to an organisation’s culture and aspirations.
