THE ABC GUIDE TO HIRING AN INTERIM EXECUTIVE

What is temporary, flexible and cost effective, yet delivers strategic business improvements that are permanent?  The answer is an Interim Executive or Manager and an increasing number of business organisations are hiring an extra pair of senior management hands that can:

  • Manage business critical change projects
  • Identify and secure cost savings
  • Facilitate and conclude strategic reviews / plans
  • Turnaround underperforming business units

The Corpex Group has a portfolio of c.1000 Interim Executives, so we have immediate access to high achievers with impressive experience of your industry.

Consider some of the advantages for your business …………….

Availability

  • Can start immediately and will disengage as soon as the project is successfully completed
  • Can operate on a full or part-time basis and will only stay as long as they are adding measurable value
  • Expects to work long hour days to get your job done

Business Focused

  • Focused only on delivering results and improvements for your business
  • Shuns corporate politics and shares wisdom / experience with your staff
  • No hidden agenda or seeking a permanent post, just rolls up their sleeves and delivers results for you

Cost Effective

  • You only pay for the actual number of days worked
  • About half the daily cost of a senior consultant
  • Does not go on your Payroll so no on costs such as NI etc

Your Interim Executive may only be temporary, but the business improvements delivered will be permanent!  So, how do you hire one?  Well, that’s as simple as ABC

Ask The Corpex Group

  • Telephone me to discuss the business challenge, improvements required and the ideal candidate to do the job
  • You will be reviewing 4 or 5 candidate CVs within 24 – 36 hours

Book Interviews

  • Meet and interview 2 or 3 Interim Executive candidates
  • Select your preferred Interim Executive

Confirmation

  • We will sort all the paperwork and confirm contractual terms
  • Together we will agree and confirm expectations
  • Confirm start date, usually within a couple of days of interview

So, if your business is not moving forward quickly enough, consider accelerating the pace of improvement by hiring an Interim Executive.  It costs nothing to meet 2 or 3 talented individuals – the process is as simple as ABC.
