Interim Management

In order to achieve results and goals at the right time, there is often a need to able to secure the right leadership and relief for the organisation at short notice. Hiring an interim leader (manager) is often a good option when there is no time for recruitment, or no long-term need for a permanent employee.

When is Interim Management suitable?

We are the right partner and Interim Management is often the right service when our customers are facing:

  • personnel changes
  • organisational changes
  • specific projects
  • long-term sickness leave or parental leave
  • a generational shift
  • internationalisation
  • an IPO
  • a merger

We work with interim managerial and leadership assignments, for shorter or longer assignments, to meet the needs of our customers. It is a cost-effective option, as it does not involve any start-up or winding-up costs.

What is Interim Management?

Interim Management is, simply put, a temporary solution when an organisation, planned or at short notice, hires a professional and operative manager with extensive experience for a limited period for a specific mission/task. Interim Management has grown rapidly to become a clear choice for many organisations when a need for external expertise arises at management level.

An Interim Manager is a safe source of knowledge and expertise, and someone who:

  • is quick at analysis and evaluation
  • has the capacity to quickly define an operational plan
  • has the ability to motivate others
  • achieves set goals
  • hands over a result and action plan to their successor/client

How do we work?

We use the same headhunting & search method for an Interim Management assignment as we do for recruiting for a permanent position through Executive Search. Our search and selection process includes, among other things, a survey of the available skills on the market and within our existing network from previous assignments, as well as an extensive search of different types of networks, in order to quickly find available Interim Managers on the market. Naturally, we also have a comprehensive process for taking up references. Background checks and tests can also be included in the assignment, if required.

Our methodology ensures that our clients get Interim Managers that can be quickly put in place and deliver from day one.

We believe in transparency

We have great respect and understand that it’s hard to be a customer today. We have a major focus on our customer promise and ensure that our customers can be confident that we can help them in the most difficult situations. We maintain an ongoing dialogue during the appointment process and work together to find the best solution for each situation. With us, our customers can work with senior recruitment consultants who can guide them in the right direction and find the right solution for the specific situation in which the organisation finds itself.

  • Change projects, when you want to change the internal culture of the organisation
  • During expansions, mergers, IPOs or acquisitions
  • When implementing new systems
  • If you want to solve a problem on a project basis
  • During periods of sick leave or parental leave, or when employees retire
  • High workload

We believe in networks

K2 Search’s mission is to give our customers the best possible service! We go the “extra mile” in order to give our customers and Interim Managers safe, secure support – before, during and after the assignment. K2 Interim Management works closely with our colleagues in K2 Search, as well as with the rest of the Wise Group. Over the past twenty years we have built up a strong network of experienced managers who can quickly familiarise themselves with different problems. We build trusting relationships – both with our customers and with our candidates. Structure, order, knowledge, speed, curiosity and passion are keywords for creating satisfied customers and interim consultants.
