Bastian’s Interim Management and Contractor staffing Solutions assists our clients by providing qualified, highly skilled and experienced executive talent only when they need them. The perfect balance of a flexible workforce meeting a flexible workflow.

If you have a short-term leadership gap, need to manage a crisis, require someone to manage a change program or system implementation, then an interim resource could be the right solution for you.

Our Interim Management and Contracting talent will quickly work to understand the business situation and challenges to help make changes, delivering outcomes quickly which is exceptionally important when there are time constraints.

Many organisations find themselves in a position where they are too reliant on key individuals, their skills and experience. Lately, there have been many stories about teams struggling to provide a service because key skills have been lost due to someone exiting the business, often at short notice. This can have a knock-on effect to other parts of the business, leaving organisations operating at risk. Bringing in interim resources when this happens can help elevate issues and address any business continuity risks. Therefore, we understand it is paramount that we find you someone who can hit the ground running. They can often also be a critical friend, using experience and knowledge to help further improve your service.

Often organisations have elongated permanent recruitment process that can be drawn out and complex. The time that goes into the process is phenomenal, especially with the high risk that even at final stages your offer could get turned down. Hiring an Interim alleviates the pressure of filling the role and allows you to take the time to find the right person for your team. This way you can address any immediate resourcing needs, continue with your day job and carry out a quality recruitment process for your permanent team.

Our Interim and Contracting candidates will bring a wealth of knowledge that you can use to your full advantage. Often, we have found that internal permanent staff will learn and develop from the skills our Interim Resources have been able to bring into teams.

There is a perception that hiring an Interim Resource or Contractor is costly, however balance the cost against risk to your business and the costs start to make sense.

Losing key internal resources can cause major business disruption which costs in time and lost revenue. Hiring an interim allows you to be specific about the outputs that you want delivered while giving you a fresh perspective unaffected by operating culture and internal politics.
