In the Food Manufacturing Industry Interim Management is the answer to hundreds of Decision Makers across the country – people who have a desperate recruitment gap to but no one to fill it on a permanent job basis.
Interim Management is a growing sector of the Food & FMCG Industry market with many people turning from permanent jobs to a self employed basis which offers them variety and flexibility – most ‘interim candidates’ don’t work all year round and often take a well earned rest of a couple of months. Interim ensures the individual has flexibility to manage his or her own diaries and working patterns.
Interim Managers work on a self employed basis and provide resources to companies who have a need for additional temporary support. For example, filling a gap in the business until a permanent person is recruited for the interim job – someone may have unexpectedly left the company OR the company may have project, which requires some temporary, specialist resources.
The biggest needs within the Food Manufacturing & FMCG industry at present are New Product Development (NPD), Technical, Manufacturing/Operations and Production, although we also cover Engineering, HR, Commercial/Sales, Supply Chain and Purchasing/Buying.
How does Interim Management Recruitment work?
Interim Managers usually work at a level below their last permanent position so they can really make an impact on the company with little induction and no honeymoon period.
* Are Flexible with Location
* Accessible Immediately
* Self Employed
* Ask for a daily rate and cover their own personal tax and NI
* Have a proven history within their function
* Can provide referrals for previous projects
* Are Keen, Determined and Enthusiastic
Candidates should be well motivated, organised and have reached a senior position within their function (although, roles often require the individual to operate at a level below so it is essential candidates are flexible with positions).
Every day rates vary based on the project, level and timeframe and usually include expenses. Assignments might take candidates around the country and from time to time overseas therefore flexibility with regards staying away during the week is vital.
