The recruitment of interim managers has evolved enormously over the last decade. No longer are these individuals ‘holding the fort’ but are offering exceptional leadership at times of change and transition. Interims bring well-honed skills and expertise to your organisation at short notice without the overheads associated with employment. Interims are agile and flexible and are used to working to changing briefs and uncertainty. In a world which is changing radically, increasing need and shifting expectations are adding to the burden of those organisations serving it. Interims can bring skills that you may not require full time or for longer than for a few months. They bring pace, innovation, fresh ideas and are highly motivated to deliver results. Here at Starfish, we ensure that we work with the strongest talent in the market.
We believe at Starfish that it’s the power of our relationships and understanding of our clients’ needs that give us the edge. When we talk about hiring interim’s, we stress that it’s the context for the hiring which is often the most important factor. We don’t just match CVs; we are providing high quality individuals that will make a significant difference to your business. We meet our interim candidates to understand their skills and experiences but also to gain insight into their personalities and styles. We support new and established interim’s and can offer advice around CV development market intelligence and current trends. We offer a partnership approach with candidates and clients, the better our understanding of you, the higher our success rate with the interim hire.
We work across different sectors and cover all disciplines. Whether you need an Interim Chief Executive, Interim Chief Operating Officer, Interim Director, Organisational Development Consultant or Project Manager we can assist with these searches.

Their thorough understanding of the marketplace underpins an ability to deliver a brief efficiently and effectively no matter how detailed or specialised. Their business model is such that clients will have the attention of highly experienced consultants throughout the process.
I have broad experience working with senior headhunters and felt especially well looked after by you and your team. I was particularly impressed by the way you personally represented our organisation.
You were, clearly, fully on top of the brief, and had also got under the skin of the values and tone of us as well as the commercial aspects of the role. I think you did a fine job for them and for me.
I have worked with Starfish Search in the context of several organisations. Having been involved in senior appointments for 25 years, I love working with Starfish because they are better than anyone else at getting to the heart of an organisation’s needs.
Their playback of our needs and subsequent production of a brief are second to none. On every assignment they have demonstrated an intuitive understanding of the drivers and values that influence the diverse candidate communities they are searching in.
I have watched Starfish go from strength to strength and make some truly excellent appointments. Your ability to reach high calibre and quality candidates is well known and can only be down to the end knowledge and professionalism of you and your excellent team.
We sought to add specific specialisms and diversify our board in terms of characteristics and lived experience. Starfish, through their highly experienced search team and extensive networks, fully met the search brief and we are delighted with the result.
Starfish have worked closely with us on several briefs and for each appointment and have attracted some great candidates. Their assessment of candidates and the information provided to us has been first-class and we have felt very confident about their judgement.
What impresses me most about the team at Starfish Search is the ethical foundation on which they are built and which drives all that they do. They have a strong commitment to their clients and to effective delivery. I have a real sense that this firm cares about customer satisfaction.
We canvased a few different firms prior to selecting Starfish and were struck by the approach Starfish took. There was a real sense of ownership and responsibility displayed, with a determination to really drill into what skills and capabilities we needed for each role.
Whether dealing with a client or a candidate the Starfish interim team is always extremely diligent and professional in their approach. They are highly skilled, listen well, engages fully with the brief, responds promptly and provides excellent briefings and assessments.
Their work is always to the highest standard and they go above and beyond to ensure they are responsive. As a client, I have always found the team to be thoughtful and intuitive in their approach to the brief, sourcing a good mix of candidates.
