Does your organisation require an experienced, qualified new team member to deliver a particular project you have secured? Hiring an interim professional can be a great alternative to the risk of hiring a permanent recruit.
So, what are the top reasons you should hire a financial services interim specialist rather than a permanent staff-member?
Hiring a contractor who does not have a permanent role in your organisation means you can be flexible with the length of their contract, and is an easy way to scale up your business when required. You can choose when to do this based on seasonal fluctuations.
Contractors are used to working quickly and efficiently on projects, and because of their temporary position normally do not get tied up in the office processes and politics, so will be able to solely focus on the tasks at hand.
Utilise different skillsets
Perhaps your workforce is particularly strong in one area, but not as strong in others? Hiring interim professionals to bridge this gap as and when you need means your business will be able to cope with a higher volume of projects and more varied challenges that you may not have taken on otherwise.
Hiring an interim professional is a cost-effective solution to a staffing challenge. If hiring a permanent member of staff is not feasible at your current size or you simply don’t require that individual’s expertise year-round, hiring them for a contracted period eases the pressure on overheads. Although the daily rate will be higher, the reduced risk and contract length makes it less costly overall.
Interim professionals pose less of a risk to organisations than permanent staff members, not just for the reasons above but also because they are faster to recruit. Generally speaking you can recruit an interim professional in under a week, particularly if you use an agency that has a network of highly qualified interim managers in financial services sector on their records to call on for your desired role.
