I also head hunt / recruit Interim Managers for Food Manufacturers (and non-food companies). Interim Recruitment runs pretty much the same as perm recruitment, though a lot faster our side. Working from known available managers, we can quickly provide you with a list of available candidates, often which have previously managed the same projects. I charge for interim managers on a monthly basis, invoicing our clients directly, avoiding any payroll conundrums. Candidates work directly with clients, managing their hours, expenses and working schedules, usually through an insured (PDI) Ltd company. I therefore invoice separately to my working Interims.
Interim jobs in food manufacturing are becoming increasingly important, as consumer demands flex and flux through time. Industry changes and repercussions drive the need for rapid changes operationally and technically often against the toughest timescales, and usually beyond your existing businesses capability. Interim Managers provide the fastest route to immediate and rapid improvements and changes. When I consider Interim Managers for your company, be assured that having been a successful Interim Manager myself, that I will check an individual’s capabilities before submitting their details.
Most recruiters will only be checking job function, price and availability – I will actually run through the project brief with the candidates assessing their strengths and weaknesses along the interview. Managers will be primed ready for interviews and action – You wouldn’t expect your own managers to attend meetings poorly prepared and incapable would you?
Being a seasoned Ex-Interim within food companies, I have seen good and bad managers at all levels and functions operating both on Interim and permanently employed basis.
The majority of my available candidates can be reviewed here. If you see candidates that you like, please use the enquiry button and reference number to get that particular candidates full CV. I have authorisation to exchange details on all listed candidates – hurry hurry, they won’t be free for long.
I always have a list of / access to:
Readily looking to book their next Interim assignment.
So, if you tell me what you want the hired manager to achieve in the Interim Period, I am sure that my growing network of candidates will supply you an excellent set of candidates to review, quickly.
As many of you will be aware, I myself come from an Interim Management background within food manufacturing, and understand fully what it takes to be a good Interim Manager.
