Temporary & Interim

The joy of finance is that you are able to work in many different sectors across your career.

Modern finance departments are viewed as business partners rather than back room bean counters. We need to be accurate, process driven and aware of deadlines; but curiosity, and the need to be able to analyse data and communicate ideas, is now paramount. Finance is challenging, but hard work usually pays off in an interesting and rewarding career.

Market Overview

As we alluded to earlier, the temporary and interim employment market is certainly fast and fluid. And that makes it a very hard market to read.

We offer flexible temporary or interim solutions that can be a lifesaver across a multitude of business scenarios including long-term absenteeism, a system implementation, heavy workload, to cover internal secondments or simply because a business just needs another pair of hands at a critical moment in time.

And of course, each scenario requires a different skill set or competency level from transactional finance to senior finance appointments as well as maybe specific expertise such as payroll, tax, business modelling or PowerBI.

Whether you’re between jobs and can commit to a temporary role to work alongside your permanent job search or a professional interim, we recommend staying in touch with our team to ensure you receive timely notifications. Be aware that not all temporary or interim roles are advertised, again, back to the speed and urgency of the market. Equally, if you’re a client who is experiencing a shortfall within your team or anticipating future support needs, then please do let us know.

It’s imperative that you work with an experienced solution provider to help you navigate this fast-paced and dynamic market at a business-critical time.
