Interim Managers

Growth or change within any organisation can cause significant turbulence, which is why it’s key to have the right people on board. Organisations must ensure they have the adequate talent needed to steer the team and sustain the business. Interim managers play a key role during times of transition and change. Independent, expert and highly skilled, they can help move an organisation through a turbulent period after the loss of a key staff member, help shift an organisation in its strategic direction or indeed help turnaround failing organisations.

Being at arms-length, interims are often better placed to challenge the received wisdom, work without an agenda and deliver your organisation the change or support it requires at that time.

Finding those people is a skill in itself and often a challenge when time is short or there are several other competing issues for urgent attention.

Oxford HR maintains a pool of highly qualified, exceptional interim candidates from across the global development sector in order to supply clients with the talent needed for these challenges. These individuals are closely vetted by our team to ensure they not only have the right credentials for the job and a portfolio of successfully completed projects, but also the empathy and emotional intelligence to work sensitively with their new team and quickly diagnose critical issues.

We maintain close contact with our interims to ensure that the process is running smoothly and that projects are on track, so our clients are able to focus wholly on the issues at hand.

"Oxford HR managed the process extremely professionally helping us to source great candidates, whilst taking all the weight off us through the process. Importantly they helped to filter and ensure the fit was right and that candidates were well briefed and genuinely interested and suited to us."

"International Alert partnered with Oxford HR for a critical interim appointment to our Executive Team. The timeline was very compressed and over the Christmas/New Year period too! Throughout the process, I found the Oxford HR team to be dedicated, hard working and professional - and they delivered an excellent longlist of candidates that resulted in Alert having a choice of two eminently appointable professionals after interviews. Their recruitment materials and web portal were also top notch - I will certainly be planning to work with Oxford HR again for both interim and substantive key senior positions."
