Interim Executive Roles

At Suzie Walker Executive Search, we are experienced recruiters who are well equipped to identify high calibre, senior interim executives and can work at the speed required to fill interim roles in a timely fashion. We recognise that interim roles often require a rapid turnaround and we have a dedicated interim desk to deliver this through.

Our approach at Suzie Walker Executive Search is simple, we have an extensive network of highly successful and proven professionals, which means that we are already in contact with the very people that you need. Having met and interviewed all of our candidates, we understand their individual personalities and skillsets, making it much easier for us to match the most relevant candidates to your organisation.

Which senior interim roles do we specialise in?

We recruit senior commercial interim roles across the retail; leisure and consumer services sectors. Our area of specialism is senior marketing and commercial roles. These roles vary in terms of level, salary and length of contract. Roles range from £70,000 – £500,000 base salary per annum, plus attractive benefits packages or day rates of between £400 – £2000. Our interim contracts are typically a minimum of 3-6 months with most being 9-12 months or longer in some cases.

We cover the full remit of marketing, digital and commercial roles on an interim basis to include (but not limited to):

What is the process for recruiting an Interim Director?

When you need to recruit an Interim Director, we will present you with a shortlist of high calibre candidates that can deliver in this senior role, who are a good fit with both the technical aspects of the role as well as the cultural business environment. We build longstanding relationships with our clients and will always seek to understand your company and its challenges. Our experience in the specialist sectors of retail, leisure and consumer services ensures that we are aware of market pressures and issues which may have an impact on the recruitment process. Part of our role as a specialist executive search firm is to have a clear overview of your company’s business model, commercial strategy and sector, so that when we recruit for your interim director we do so with all of the underlying knowledge required to source a highly suitable candidate.

Is the market for Interim Directors changing?

The market for Interim Directors is changing rapidly, especially in the consumer facing sectors. Technology has fundamentally changed the way that we shop, travel and spend our disposable income. Companies are looking at different ways to communicate with their customer base, raise brand awareness and engage with their customers. We’ve seen a huge rise in the number of Interim Digital Director and Customer Director roles and with the increased demand an increase in salaries and day rates. Hiring these Customer and Digital Directors on a contract basis (typically a minimum 12-month contract) has enabled companies to “over recruit”, to hire very experienced execs who are proven in the skill area, have done a similar role previously and can drive commercial growth from the outset.
