• How engaging interims can benefit a permanent search.

    As businesses have re-aligned their processes to cope with the new Covid working constraints, so too have their resourcing partners who have developed creative solutions to benefit their clients.


    With business confidence generally at a low level, additional resourcing is often considered as a diversion away from the primary tasks of managing and securing the future of their businesses.


    Since the pandemic struck, the recruitment sector has seen that businesses are sometimes unable to recruit permanent talent, due to:

    • appropriate candidate’s perceived risks over changing jobs in challenging times
    • companies’ scepticism towards effectiveness of traditional recruitment methods

    To overcome these concerning issues, businesses are turning towards recruitment partners who can offer both interim and permanent resourcing services.


    When delays occur with an essential permanent search, then companies are seeking recruiters who can offer a ‘one stop’ interim and permanent solution.

    The benefit of this concept is that Interims are assigned immediately, allowing the permanent searches to continue, at an appropriate pace, confident that the interim creates calm, generates momentum and control and who will step aside once the permanent candidate is available.

    Such instances where Interims continue to be in demand are when:

    • instant, additional resource is critical to safeguarding business continuity

    • the introduction of a new corporate direction/strategy is necessary

    • rescue plans are required for either an operational or financial turnaround

    • a steady pair of hands to complement the existing management structure, offering solid, experienced advice and senior counsel

    • companies with severe cash flow constraints benefit from our ‘pro bono’ interims
