Multilingual Interim Managers

If you’re looking for an experienced executive to plug an urgent gap, support a change program or strengthen a project team, we have a large network of multilingual interim managers who are available at short notice for short-term assignments such as:

  • Mergers, acquisitions, turnaround, restructuring, change management
  • New subsidiary start-up/new division launch
  • Interim cover until a permanent candidate is available
  • Short-term requirement for additional management skills

There are vast differences between countries in terms of legislation and business practice and lack of communication and misunderstanding are often the reasons behind conflicts, unresolved business issues and underperformance. An Interim Manager who speaks the language and who is at ease with local customs and business culture will be able to hit the ground running.

Interim to permanent - a rapid, cost-effective hiring method

The REC says that it takes 68 days on average to complete a permanent hire. Excluding weekends, this equates to around three and half months. Then you can probably add another four weeks while you wait for the candidate to begin settling in and getting to grips with the role. That’s around five months in total and the wait can certainly have an adverse effect on the business.

Many firm use the “Interim to Permanent” solution, since some interim managers are prepared to consider longer employment depending on the nature of the role.

Experienced Interim Managers, available at short notice, are used to hitting the ground running, so can be an excellent option in situations where the role needs to be filled urgently. Candidates who put themselves forward for interim to permanent assignments are an excellent source and can reduce the time to hire considerably, enabling your business to get up and running immediately.
