Signium Interim provides high-speed search and recruitment support to clients with an immediate requirement for gap-cover, project, programme, transformation, or change management. 

Signium’s Interim Practice provides clients with available and experienced management talent across all disciplines for executive and senior management level assignments, transformation and change management, and programme and project leadership. 

As seasoned leaders with deep industry, functional and transformation experience, career interims can add huge value to our clients. Their vast leadership experience or functional expertise benefits clients in a number of ways, including helping to navigate businesses and teams through significant change, as well as the impartial and independent advice provided by such experienced professionals.

The pace of change - with digitalisation and technology enhancements, mergers & acquisitions, market uncertainty, new routes to market and trading volatility - has led businesses to increasingly use interim management as the go-to solution for managing rapid growth, turnaround and change.

Our way of working entails:

Senior commitment & collaboration  

From the briefing to the assignment appointment, our approach guarantees that interim search is led by experienced headhunters.

Our Interim experts work together with our industry experts who intimately understand their practices, sectors and regions, working within global Practice Groups organised by specialisation (Consumer, Education & Non-Profit, Financial Services, Industrial & Manufacturing, Life Sciences, Professional Services and Technology). We work collaboratively with our international partners at Signium around the world to support the needs of our clients.

Trusted business partners

We earn trusted partner status with our clients through our demonstrable track record of service, responsiveness to urgent requirements, interim sector knowledge and market insight. Interim is a strategic solution for any client experiencing rapid change and we work with rigour and integrity, applying research resources and industry, regional and functional expertise to ensure every aspect of the market is covered. In return, we require a high level of commitment and insight from our clients to ensure that we secure the best talent available to the timescales required. The Signium model places the client at the heart of our business with a two-way authentic trusted partner relationship, and as a result Signium has achieved a 90% track record or repeat business globally.

Market coverage

We provide clients with interim professionals across all senior management positions, from Managing Directors to Board Governance, across all functional disciplines in Commercial, Digital, E-Commerce, Finance, Human Resources, IT, Legal, Marketing, Operations & Supply Chain, Quality Assurance, Research & Development, Sales, Sustainability and Tax. Additionally, we provide independent experts to provide consultancy and advisory services, programme, project management and transformation and change leadership. 

We operate across sectors for global, regional and local assignments in Consumer, Education & Not for Profit, Financial Services, Industrial & Manufacturing, Life Sciences, Professional Services and Technology. 

Quality process

We work closely with our clients to develop high quality assignment/project scope, conduct thorough screenings and rigorous assessment, providing reference checking if required. Only interim profiles who match the requirements of the assignment are presented and we remain available for our clients throughout the assignment, subsequent negotiations and whilst the interim is providing on-going professional services to our client.


As a founding member of the professional standards body, the Association of Executive Search and Leadership Consultants (AESC), we are committed to leading and safeguarding both the quality of our industry and every client and candidate relationship.

Diversity and inclusion

We truly believe in a genuine approach to diversity and inclusion, giving our clients’ the strongest competitive edge. Our experience shows that interim management can be the catalyst to change and transformation, enabling businesses to manage the transition from understanding ‘why’ D&I is key to increasing innovation, productivity and business growth, to understanding ‘how’ to embed D&I into culture, ethos, and processes. Signium has a network of diversity and inclusion experts that provide both strategic and operational implementation for small to mid-cap businesses and global multi-national corporates.
