3 ‘myths’ about interim management

Starting a career as an interim manager offers an exciting opportunity for greater flexibility, as well as the chance to make a real difference to the growth of multiple companies. However, we understand that there can be a lot of uncertainty around starting a role that doesn’t promise permanence. In this blog, we aim to debunk a few of the common myths surrounding interim management…


1.You won’t be a part of company culture


While there is way less pressure to fit in with company culture and find your tribe, it is still important to build relationships with your team – especially if you’re going to be managing them! It’s also your job as an interim manager to inspire and lead; both of which cannot be achieved without forming strong connections. Plus, when working with a recruitment agency they will make sure to place you in a sector that matches your personality and preferences. Of course, your experience in the chosen sector will also be taken into consideration. 


2.Transient sense of achievement 


Even though you won’t get to stick around to see the fruits of your labour, the reward will come from knowing you’ve left a lasting legacy. You were hired to fix a problem and without your expertise the company would not have been able to grow and progress. Furthermore, you still have bragging rights! Remember to record your biggest achievements on your CV so future employers can see just how much value you add. 


3.Finding a new role is an arduous process 


The transition period between assignments doesn’t have to be stressful and working with a trusted recruitment agency can certainly help make the experience more seamless.  Here at Imperium Rescoursing, we specialise in interim vacancies and work closely with our candidates to find their next role efficiently and at pace.
