Defence, aerospace & automotive interim management solutions

Leadership & talent solutions for better business outcomes

The importance of the defence, aerospace and automotive industries are paramount in the current economic climate. Especially in the wake of COVID-19. Whilst defence remains buoyant, aerospace and automotive has been badly hit by the crisis. These markets have declined at a time when the UK was preparing to exit the EU.  

The experience and expertise of permanent senior executives and interim managers can help to both counter the risks and capitalise on the opportunities. Which is why we are seeing strong growth in demand for interim assignments in these turbulent sectors.
