With an ongoing skills shortage across the country, companies are increasingly looking to interim people solutions. Whether it’s helping with a systems implementation, closing out a year end, improving MI, or just a straightforward maternity or gap cover. Whatever your interim requirement, Headstar have operated in the interim market for over 30 years and can quickly and effectively resource your need.

Finance interims

For many businesses, the move into the interim market is unknown territory. It can be easy to assume that the person you need doesn’t exist, but there is a growing body of people forging a career as a finance interim. We make it our business to know these people and have also advised and helped newcomers to the market.

How our process works

Interim assignments are not the place to learn on the job. You won’t want any surprises and need someone with the skills and acumen to start delivering from the outset. 

Having been placing interims into businesses since the 1980s, Headstar can advise on who is available and what our experience of those individuals is. On most occasions, we are able to introduce a candidate with whom we have worked on many assignments previously. 

We can therefore consult with confidence on their abilities to deliver on specific tasks, and support that with client references

The interim market operates in a very different way to the permanent candidate market, and our experienced consultants can explain the dynamics in more detail, helping to manage your expectations throughout. 

Our pricing is completely transparent and in most cases we recommend an “all-in” hourly or daily rate. We then manage all administration on your behalf and act as a sounding board to the interim candidate while they are on assignment.

Our interim finance recruitment network

Given our mix of experienced consultants and inhouse Finance Directors, finance interims not only find it easy to deal with Headstar, they also benefit from access to our wider network. This can help enormously when presented with a client challenge with which they may have limited experience of. We regularly organise learning events and networking opportunities for our interim network, so that they can learn from those around them and have access to additional skillsets should they need them.  

Industries we work in

Some client assignments require specific industry knowledge, while others may focus more on the business challenge. In both cases, it’s likely that we can introduce the right candidate for the issue faced.

We have built a network of interims with a broad range of industry knowledge. Ranging from software and technology to heavy engineering, our consultants can provide candidate profiles that match your requirement.
