What is an Interim Manager?
An Interim Manager is anyone employed by an organisation for a limited amount of time to run a Project, department or service.
When do I need one?

Interim Managers can also be used when services are being reorganised, limited life Pilot Projects are undertaken or when particular skills outside the norm are needed.
