Interim management is about providing leadership for a period of time. Good interim leadership is about sharing knowledge, fresh ideas and insights, and injecting a positive influence to deliver enduring results. It is about people harnessing their expertise and their networks to deliver positive change.
In the five years since we were founded, we’ve been making some noise in the interim management business! In 2016, we were voted one of the UK’s fastest-rising interim management firms. In 2018, Holdsway has been ranked the UK’s leading Gold Service provider of interims, based on quality of service*.
We’re proud of our interims’ track record. They are amongst the best working today and have provided interim leadership to our clients, helping them deliver positive change and enduring results.
To be an effective professional interim you are very likely to be proactive, focused on results and have significant change, transition, programme or crisis management experience during your 20 years or so of business management experience. Or perhaps you are an extremely credible and safe pair of hands when stepping into sudden gap in a management team. You are likely to be an effective communicator, able to reassure management teams and Boardrooms that a brief is safe in your hands, share your knowledge and expertise and deliver legacies of enduring and positive outcomes and operational improvement.
Above all, interim management is about spreading new thinking, fresh ideas and best practice by experienced managers and executives passionate about helping others.
You provide interim leadership, helping our clients manage transition, change, uncertainty or crisis situations, commissioned on an assignment basis. To achieve this you will have been bench-marked and assessed by us to ensure that you are suitably over-qualified and proven for the challenge.
