Interim Management Services:

Why interim management is different:

Interim management sits alongside our other search and selection services, so we can offer a bespoke approach to building capacity and capability in response to any client brief. And the local reach of our regional offices means that we can provide the same level of support to clients anywhere in the UK.

We have been operation in the interim market for over 10 years, we are experts at interpreting the business need, clarifying the role, and identifying the transferable skills which the right candidate must bring.
The interim market is different in several key respects.
We tend to be called in at very short notice – often without a formal brief, and with a demanding combination of factors: experience, availability, and the imperative to fit into an existing structure and culture.
The need to respond quickly means the search process relies heavily on the quality of the candidates with whom we already work.
Interim managers usually need to be over-qualified for the roles they go into. The focus tends to be on creating stability and promoting good management, so their skills and understanding of the business context must be second-to-none.
At the Exp Group, with 5000 experienced, senior professionals on our books, we have access to a large number of very talented people with a wide range of sector and functional specialism’s, including:


Senior General Management,

Finance, HR, Marketing & Communications,



Rigorous Selection – unrivalled support
At a time when many people are moving into freelance work, upholding professionalism and quality is more important than ever. We believe our clients get the best interim results from people for whom interim management is a career choice, not those who are ‘between jobs’.
So our interview process is the most structured in the business, and we always take up formal references, with informal soundings too where possible.
With interim management, the contractual arrangement is between the client and us, and the interim and us. The client does not have a contract with the interim directly, and pays only for the days actually worked.
We don’t insist that all our interim managers operate through their own limited companies, and we see our role at the centre of the process as critical – all the way through the placement and our people can benefit from being and employee if the assignment warrants it.
We keep in regular touch with both interim and client, and manage the situation actively through a well-structured reporting process.
We believe that the professionalism and thoroughness of our approach brings business benefits to our clients – and the level of repeat business we get seems to bear this out.
We are often successful in filling demanding roles, such as those requiring an unusual mix of experience, or into organisations needing turnaround.
Clients tell us that our interims leave legacies – developing in-house staff, creating structures and teams, or setting up systems for the future – that help to build capacity and capability for our clients.
We see ourselves as leaders in the interim management sector, and are a founder member of the Interim Management Association.
Our interim managers tell us they like working with Exp Group because we provide a great deal of support. We take their professional development very seriously, and work in partnership with CM Training the leading coaching & training organisation specialising in interim management capability.
We have developed our own half-day seminar for potential interims, which we run monthly for senior managers considering becoming interims – and we give an honest appraisal of what it’s like, because being an interim can be a very challenging but highly rewarding career choice.
