Interim Management

Providing interim management for our existing consultancy clients


Interim management

Interim management is a service we offer as an extension of our consultancy with existing clients, or as a standalone service to new clients.

Managing change

Interim management is the temporary placement of an experienced supply chain and logistics leader into your company at short notice for a finite period, usually 3 to 6 months. We have a wide network of professional interim managers that we work with and can call upon to manage new and existing clients through a period of change.


Who we work with


Experts that ensure delivery

With existing clients, our consultancy work is to identify opportunities for improvement in all aspects of supply chain and logistics. Sometimes, the opportunities identified require long-term interim support, outside of the traditional consultancy time-frame. 

In these instances, we offer interim management ensuring that all the identified objectives are progressed, delivered and monitored.

Furthermore, we can remain engaged and accountable for the delivery of those objectives through the interim manager. This ensures continuity and provides the client with a performance assurance that cannot be matched by interim agencies.

Statement of Work

Through a structured Statement of Work document, we will develop a clear definition of the objectives, how they need to be delivered, when they need to be delivered and how success will be measured. Further to this, and as required, we will also include timelines, milestones, RACI matrices, and stakeholder engagement plans.

The Statement of Work will be provide the ‘blueprint’ for the interim manager to follow in order to progress, deliver and monitor the objectives identified. Effectively, the Statement of Work provides a highly specific ‘job description’ for the interim placement.

Candidate Profiling

Using the Statement of Work, we will outline to our clients the required skill-set of the interim manager and the types of abilities that will be required to deliver the objectives. The candidate profile may include expectations on specific technical knowledge, sector relevant experience, project and team management skills and stakeholder engagement abilities. The candidate profile will also include the day rate that the client should expect to pay to meet all of the requirements.

Once the candidate profile has been developed, and agreed with the client, we will then identify suitable candidates in our network and jointly progress to candidate interviews.

Candidate Engagement

Using the Candidate Profile, Paul Trudgian Ltd will identify suitable candidates from within our network and contact them, on behalf of the client, to determine availability and confirm suitability.

From this initial contact, we will produce a shortlist of candidates that are most suited to the placement and will jointly interview these candidates with the client. Following interviews, we will support the final candidate selection along with the contractual process.
