Delivery of high-level Interim Searches:
Our area of specialism is the more senior, complex and demanding searches, leveraging our unparalleled in-depth knowledge of the top-end Interim market. We work across all sectors and functional disciplines for clients in the UK and internationally, almost always with a large element of transformation and change. Please see Our Successes for further information.

Strategic Interim Partnerships:
Matrix Interim Management also collaborates with some of our clients on a more strategic level to create bespoke, tailor-made Interim Talent Banks. In close partnership with our clients, we build a pool of thoroughly assessed Interim talent to call upon for projects as and when required. Together we can create the ultimate flexible capability for your organisation. Please contact us directly on +44 (0) 203 283 4303 to discuss your potential needs.
