Interim Recruitment

The main difference between an interim employee and a contract worker is the level at which they operate and their employment categorisation. Interim employees are more likely to be paid directly by the company on a pro-rata basis or day rate, and will typically operate at a leadership or senior management level. Contracting is typically for professionals with a niche skill set and will usually be employed by their own limited company or via a third party agency (like us) on a set day rate.

As a contract recruitment agency, we identify and recruit professional contractors with niche skill sets across a diverse range of business sectors. With strong relationships, market insight and a vast network, our specialist contract recruitment team supply contractors within Supply Chain & Logistics, FMCG, Manufacturing & Engineering, Hospitality & Catering and Human Resources.

Why hire an Interim employee?

An Interim Executive or Manager operates at a senior level within an organisation and are typically engaged to deliver a strategic piece of work or to cover a senior post until a permanent hire is onboarded. Interim Executives and Managers are highly experienced professionals with niche skills who can step into specific business situations quickly and make a real impact. This could involve leading a team or project due to a sudden absence or departure or simply because existing resources are too stretched to take this on. Equally, interims may be required to take the lead during a period of change or to instigate a new initiative. Having gaps in key leadership and managerial roles can cause real business issues.

Interim Executives and Managers bring a high level of skill, knowledge and experience in their particular field and can be brought in to assist permanent businesses on specific projects. They work on either a fixed term basis or on a rolling contract, allowing the employer to make use of a niche skillset without having to commit to hiring a full-time employee when there will not be a longer term requirement.

Interim Executives and Managers are likely to have worked with many different companies on a range of diverse projects, allowing them to draw on a breadth of experience to tackle specific issues and processes. They can provide a unique perspective and a sense of creativity that existing employees may not possess.

  • Additional benefits and perks that are available for permanent employees don’t extend to contractors, such as holiday pay and national insurance contributions,  making a contractor hire more desirable in the short term
  • Training costs are minimal, if non-existent, as contractors are being brought into a company purely to fulfil a specific requirement and will therefore not have to immerse themselves in learning company processes or systems
  • Cost savings can be made on equipment as contractors typically use their own
  • Reduced administration costs – depending on the employment classification, there is no PAYE or National Insurance Contributions payable.

Interim Executives and Managers are often highly self-motivated to complete a job to a high standard to ensure their personal brand and reputation, as well as the potential for repeat work in the future. They are also often reliant on word-of-mouth for business referrals and therefore conscious of meeting or exceeding expectations.
