Interim (HR) leadership for hire 

At times an organisation may encounter urgent challenges or temporary gapswhere there is an immediate need for broad experience and assistance. Likewise, an organisation may not have the internal capability/competency to handle a defined situation.


The solution is interim management! Temporarily hiring a highly competent and qualified manager/leadership or professional (discipline expert). Unlike a consultant, interim leadership (e.g.) temporarily takes on P/L responsibility, implements business objectives and becomes a part of the daily operation in an organisation.

As temporary assignments mosty goes through network any referral is appreciated.
