The best interim managers will lead a business when it needs it most. Interim managers are typically brought in when a company is undergoing a major restructuring, experiencing a leadership gap, or facing a specific challenge that requires specialised skills and experience.

So, how can an interim manager help your finance function?

  • Bringing expertise and experience: An interim manager is typically a highly experienced and skilled finance professional who has worked in various organisations and industries. They bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to your organisation, which can help your finance function operate more efficiently and effectively.

 

  • Providing an objective perspective: Sometimes, an organisation's finance function can become entrenched in its ways of doing things, making it difficult to see opportunities for improvement. An interim manager can provide an objective perspective on your finance function and identify areas for improvement.

 

  • Acting quickly: When a finance function is facing a crisis or urgent situation, an interim manager can step in quickly to help stabilise the situation. They can provide leadership and guidance during a time of change or uncertainty.

 

  • Managing change: An interim manager can also help manage change within your finance function. This may include implementing new processes, systems, or policies, or restructuring the finance team to better align with the organisation's goals.

 

  • Providing flexibility: Hiring an interim manager provides flexibility for your organisation. You can hire them for a specific project or period of time, and they can work on-site or remotely, depending on your needs.

 

Overall, an interim manager can bring significant benefits to your finance function, including expertise, objectivity, speed, change management skills, and flexibility.
