Interim Management jobs: Recruiting and Hiring - What you need to know

Subhaan Malik our consultant managing the role

What is an interim manager? 

An interim manager is a temporary position appointed to fill a leadership role for a set period. They are typically brought in during transition periods such as when a permanent manager is on leave, or when a business would like to address specific challenges. 

What are the responsibilities of an interim manager? 

Depending on the organisation, and their specific needs, the responsibilities of an interim manager can vary. 

But overall, interim managers are experienced professionals who come in with the knowledge and skills to make executive decisions, provide guidance and are equipped to manage day-to-day operations. They ensure continuity by managing stakeholders and addressing any challenges that arise. 

With over 35 years of experience, Marks Sattin is in a great position to place interim executives successfully. We work with a range of businesses from challenger start-ups, private businesses, FTSE-listed companies, and investor-led SMEs so whatever your business requires, we have the network to find you the right fit. 

In fact, we are affiliated with the Institute of Interim Management, the UK’s only Community dedicated to Interim Professionals, so you will be in good hands with Marks Sattin. 

What is the difference between interim managers, managers, and management consultants? 

There are some distinct differences between interim managers, managers, and management consultants. Whilst, all three hold management responsibilities, here is an overview of how they differentiate: 

Managers are permanent employees who are responsible for the ongoing success and growth of the business. Whereas interim managers hold temporary positions and are focused on managing transitionary periods. 

Management consultants are external experts who provide guidance on specific projects or challenges. And interim managers usually focus on organisational challenges rather than on a project level. 

What are the advantages of hiring an interim manager? 

  • Immediate leadership - interim managers can be quickly employed meaning there is no gap in leadership and urgent challenges can be addressed. 
  • Specialised expertise - interim managers often have extensive experience and skills. They can bring a fresh and unbiased perspective, and knowledge of best practices to assess situations objectively and improve processes as a result. 
  • Building internal capabilities - their expertise can be transferred to internal employees hence developing their skills and knowledge. This skills development can outlast their own tenure and benefit the organisation in the long term. 
  • Change and transformation management - interim managers are experts in guiding organisational change such as complex restructuring, process improvements, or cultural shifts. Their expertise ensures a smooth transition without any bumps in the road.
