Interim Management - Sales Manager - Feedback from Kevin Parkin

"I am absolutely delighted with the service provided by Interimconnect and feel it to be a breath of fresh air in the recruitment arena.

There is always a fear in recruiting at a senior level that candidates are being recommended by some agents because they are an "easy fee" rather than the best fit for your requirements.

The professionalism, speed and efficiency you handled the assignments, the frank assessment of the candidates together with the smooth arrangements of meetings and appraisals is first class.

In future, I will always use the Interconnect Network as my preferred source of candidates and will recommend that other Boards of Directors with who I have associations to consider this unbiased and professional route to recruitment.

With kind regards

Kevin Parkin"

Vitecgroup PLC - Interim Managers

Joop Janssen Divisional CEO Vitecgroup Plc

" The Vitecgroup has been working with the Interimconnect network and especially Mike Measures in the last 3 years. We have been very pleased with their prompt and effective services. 

Recently one of our companies was looking for an interim general manager. The job at hand was in a strategic but very niche field. 

With the help of Interimconnect we found Colin Whitehead who did an excellent job  and created a solid platform for his permanent successor.

Trustee - Interim Managers

 “I have used Interimconnect twice to find an Interim Finance Director for a Charity where I am a Trustee and also an Interim CEO for a business where I am Chairman. On both occasions the appointees have proved excellent and have led to semi-permanent roles. Mike through both processes was exceptionally helpful." Malcolm McAllister "

Operations Director - Silver Spring

“I have successfully used the Interimconnect network for manufacturing as well as supply chain appointments. The network is generally where I start when I need a good interim manager. Mike always seeks a thorough understanding of the role requirements and then works quickly to find suitable candidates. Mike was happy to work with me over the course of a weekend to quickly help to find me a good interim. I have interviewed candidates within 48 hours of an ad going live.

 Mike is always keen to follow up on the progress of the interims he has helped place. He has visited site on more than one occasion to meet up with the interim manager and myself. I like the informality of the relationship with Interimconnect.

 I also really like the transparency of the fee structure. For me it’s the interim who should reap the benefits of their hard work. That’s how it works with Interimconnect. It’s much better not having to pay a big agency mark up.”

Interim Chief Executive for Odyssey Care - Feedback from Pat Perridge - Odyssey Care Trustee

"I have been an interim on the network for a good number of years, and have previously used InterimConnect  to supply managers in businesses I was responsible for.  

I naturally turned to them then, when, as a Trustee of a Charity going through change, we needed to appoint an interim chief executive (CEO) to lead the change process. 

My previous good relationship with the network was valuable, as it minimised the time spent in briefing and meant a good level of understanding between us was quickly established.  In only a few days, I was offered a shortlist of appropriately qualified executives who met our requirements and were interested in the role, all of whom had been seen by  InterimConnect  and came with a positive recommendation. 

More than one candidate was appointable, and one was highly appropriate, and negotiations were rapidly concluded, again due to  InterimConnect  having prepared the ground well. 

The appointment was made in the minimum time, with a well qualified candidate, at a substantial saving over mainstream interim suppliers.  

I would not hesitate to recommend the use of  InterimConnect  to others.

Arco Ltd - Feedback from Jo Lloyd - HR Director

“Thank you again Mike for the outstanding Interim support you have provided to me again, this time at Arco.

As you know we had a tight brief and a challenging requirement on both occasions recently and you have really impressed the team with your speed of response.

The match to our requirements and your understanding of your candidates is second to none. I can highly recommend Interimconnect.”

" I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of the Interimconnect website to any organisation who are seeking an Interim Professional.  We had been struggling for some time to source the right calibre of candidates for several interim projects within our Group, but after giving the brief to Mike and discussing the assignment, he was able to put us in touch with several professionals who were able to deliver on the key objectives we were seeking.

The service was speedy, efficient and professional at all times.
