Interim Management

Insight has expanded its already comprehensive range of goods and services in the temporary employment field within the industries catered for by adding interim management. An interim manager assumes full responsibility as line or project manager as his or her tasks dictate for a specified period.  Insight can guarantee excellent interim management personnel available at very short notice thanks to our close relationship with the industries concerned and the resultant large number of candidates.

Insight acts in these cases as your direct contractor relieving you of all administrative tasks and labour law obligations. Full cost transparency is also assured.  Our interim managers, by the way, have contracts of employment with us.

Interim managers are used in the following cases.

Bridging vacancies
An interim manager can be used to take over a post that falls vacant at short notice until a permanent manager has been appointed. Such managers assume full budget and result responsibility.

Restructuring management
Improving  optimisation potential, relocating and closing of business units, restructuring of organisational units - these are all typical of the uses of interim managers, especially in those cases in which extant management might suffer any form of harm due to unpopular measures.

Project management
As structures in today’s businesses are lean interim managers create the necessary freedom of manoeuvre to manage temporary projects such as investments, purchases, etc. by using their specialised expertise to oversee them in a target- and result-oriented way.
