In line with our core values we treat all our interim candidates and prospects with integrity and respect. We promise open, honest and transparent communication and are diligent in keeping you informed throughout the process of securing an assignment for you.
Interim Partners' priority is to work with talented interim managers, who make it their permanent profession. Attracting new talent is important for a growing business with big ambitions. However, we are keen to confine our support to candidates who are seeking ongoing assignments as senior interims, as opposed to offering a route to permanent employment. We endeavour to meet as many interims as we can. Unfortunately we can't commit to seeing everyone, especially if they are new to interim management, do not have senior level experience, or are outside the sectors that we specialise in.
Based outside of the UK?
We do have a track record of assisting clients with international assignments; however, we will often place UK-based candidates with them. This is because we will have had the opportunity to meet them, assess their skills and take references. Therefore, if you are based outside of mainland UK and unable to meet us, there will be less opportunity for us to work with you. As our business grows and develops we hope to develop an international footprint.
Many of our assignments are posted on our website and we will send you email alerts to keep you informed. We do not pre-qualify who receives email alerts as your preferences are noted at registration. This means some alerts may not be appropriate for you. Our aim is to get the balance right between informing the market and maintaining client confidentiality. If an alert is not of interest, please delete it or forward it to someone in your network who may appreciate it.
Feedback on applications
The dynamics of the interim market have changed over the last decade. Technology has significantly increased the level of applications we receive for assignments posted on the internet. We aim to provide a consultative service to everyone in our candidate community; however, while we acknowledge all applications we are unable to write back with detailed feedback as to why it has been unsuccessful. If we have interviewed you please refer to the consultant you met who will provide feedback. If you have applied to a few assignments and are frustrated that you have not made progress please call us. We hope all our interim managers will want to engage with us but will understand the vagaries of the market and demands of our clients.
Keep us up to date
As part of our promise to champion the role of interim management, we want to engage you regularly in our conversations; especially through social media. To help us to do this effectively, please keep the 'availability tab' and your current details up to date on your profile. If you have not logged on to your account in six months we will ask if you are still active in the market. Following a few reminders you account details will be switched to inactive.
It's about relationships
Building close relationships with our clients and interim managers is absolutely key to us sharing success. We recognise that there are many high quality interim managers interested in fewer assignments. Our chances of making the right recommendations to clients will be much improved if we have a good, all round understanding of your strengths so that we can promote these accurately to our client base. Please work with, keep us informed, provide feedback on our service and invest time in building a long-term relationship with us.
