Founded in 2013 by Nick Diprose, an expert in interim management, Holdsway was awarded ‘Best interim Recruiter in the South of England’ in 2020 (i). Based in Woking in Surrey, Holdsway has also risen rapidly through the nationwide rankings and is now one of the UK’s top five recruiters of interim executives (ii).
Although many of our competitors are larger than us, we decided that size is less important than the quality of the relationships you build. Our size also makes us agile, able to tailor our service and be highly responsive to clients when they need to hire an interim. Our personalised service is deliberate. When you’re are managing change, turnaround, uncertainty or crisis you need to know reliable and experienced help is at hand – fast.
Our experience and insight set us apart. Over time we’ve met, assessed, and placed some of the most talented interim executives working today. Our leadership team of Nick and Mary are globally published authors on the subject of interim management. They know what a great interim looks like, but also how to structure a successful interim assignment.
We’re driven by values such as service, relationships, and responsiveness because to us, interim management is nothing at all if not focused on helping others with the benefit of experience.
