Finding the right interim candidate can be tricky, however. A good interim will display a particular set of characteristics – all of which we understand and can search for:
- Credibility and authority
- Ability to assimilate quickly and adopt the culture where appropriate – and where not, to challenge and change it
- Ability to quickly motivate and lead a team
- Ability to deliver the highest impact in a short period of time.

We can also mount a campaign to attract public interest from the right calibre of individual.
