There are preliminary steps you can take to launch a career in interim management:
Research the industry: Interim management is a unique industry, and one that requires a change in mind-set. You must be prepared to network, sell yourself, and react quickly when opportunities arise. Interim management can be highly rewarding, but not everyone is suited to this particular career path. Make sure you know the pros and cons.
Prepare your CV: This is your primary opportunity to make an impression. Your goal should be to present your background completely yet succinctly. Highlight any projects or programmes that are 'interim' in nature. We also recommend having an up-to-date profile on LinkedIn.
Lay the legal groundwork: If you are selected for an assignment, Boyden requires you to work through your own limited company. This is necessary to establish the proper contract of employment differentiating you from a direct employee. There is also relevant legislation, regulatory and insurance requirements, which vary by country. You may contact us for details.
