Interim Managers and Executives

To ensure we add value to you, we continually update ourselves in regard to current practice in the area of interims.

Interim management is the temporary provision of management resources and skills. Interim management is generally the short-term assignment of a proven executive manager brought into an organisation to manage a period of transition, crisis or change within the organisation. The interim manager is generally engaged where a permanent role is considered to be unnecessary or impossible to find at short notice. Management or the Board of Directors may hold the view that a suitable candidate is not available internally, or is not available in the short term to take up the required position. In some instances, the task at hand is considered one that would be better carried out by a specialist resource from outwith the organisation.

Interims are often required on location at clients’ premises for a number of months at a time to carry out specialist and quite demanding assignments. Consequently, maintenance of accounting and administrative records for tax and other purposes becomes challenging, and an additional unwelcomed burden. Getting to grips with the new organisation, its culture, its management, its staff and its industry specific issues takes everything you’ve got. Not to mention that, as professionals in your field, you require to continually update your knowledge and expertise to keep you at the cutting edge of your profession.

To ensure we add value to you, at FBD we continually update ourselves in regard to current practice in the area of interims as well as industry related accounting and taxation developments. In this way we ensure that the specialist services offered to interims are consistent with our core values to:

  • Give you greater peace of mind
  • Add value to you and your business
  • Grow your business, improve your profitability and increase your cashflow

Institute of Interim Management

The Institute of Interim Management (IIM) was set up in 2001 to represent Interims across the UK. It is a professional run by Interims for Interim Managers and Interim Executives. It is a not for profit organisation that provides a range of benefits for its members and runs a series of national events. It supports and promotes the whole of the Interim profession and lobbies government on its behalf.

The IIM now has a strong online presence with its own LinkedIn group, which actively hosts discussion groups, information sharing and networking for Interim Managers.

The Institute of Interim Management also plays a strong role in putting together Agencies, Service Providers and Interims and provides independent and up-to-date information about who to contact when there is a business need where the best solution is to hire an expert Interim.
