Interim not-for-profit managers

Leadership & talent solutions for better business outcomes

Austerity and reduced funding sources have put pressure on the not-for-profit sector, as have high profile issues around governance, risk, culture and behaviour. 

While there are challenges to face, there are many opportunities to grasp too. Digital innovation is opening unforeseen possibilities, while charities bold enough to embrace change are reaping the benefits. 

Our not-for-profit team works with charities of all shapes and sizes – deploying experienced interims with the experience gained inside and outside of the sector. We connect leading interims who can offer a fresh perspective for overcoming complex problems and delivering transformational results. 

Our track record stretches from household names to small charities. Whatever your individual goals, we’re ready to find the right interim solution for you. 

Helping you accelerate performance

Our team delivers superior outcomes for complex engagements whilst bringing significant value to our clients through the provision of interim executives, interim teams and leadership advisory services. We deliver for a wide range of mandates ranging from executive and functional leadership assignments, business transformation, programme management and change to restructuring portfolios and thematic reviews. 

Proven expertise

We work closely with our clients to get an in-depth understanding of the situation and the organisation's goals. We help our clients: 

  • Diagnose the ‘as is’ state, understand the options and implement new structures, operating models and processes. 
  • Improve operations and staff engagement by providing senior leaders with transformational leadership skills 
  • Innovate by connecting them with individuals outside of the sector that can bring fresh thinking and transferable skills to the table 
  • Understand and improve their data, governance and risk profile. 
  • Respond to regulatory judgements including improving financial rigour in distressed situations 
  • Achieve customer transformation through IT enabled change
