Tip of the week for more interim interviews!
One of the main attributes of career interim managers is their ability to parachute into organisations and to add value from the start. To do this they need not only to be flexible on what organisations they work for and the challenges they take on but also terms and location.
An early indication of flexibility can be when you apply for an assignment. Avoid saying, for example, “ I only want assignments in London” or my fee rate is “£XXX per day (full stop)” with no indication of flexibility. It could be interpreted as just that . Show flexibility at the outset and obtain more interviews!
Some may argue it is better to layout at the outset what you are prepared to take on thereby saving your time and others.
