For interim managers

Interim Management is about delivering effective business solutions. To be an interim professional is a privileged position, which offers an unparalleled opportunity to drive through change and make a real difference.

Interim Management services are based on tripartite relationship between the client, Nuvadis and an independent professional – the Interim Manager.

Based on the analysis of the clients’ needs, we look up the suitable and available Interim Manager as the solution. We contract on one side the Interim Manager, with whom we sign an executive mandate, which empowers to act in his role for the client. On the other side we contract the client.

When working as an Interim Manager it is important to establish a position as an outside supplier of professional services, rather than being considered as an employee.

The selection process

Not every successful manager acting in the corporate world will be a successful Interim Manager. And not all consultants who were successful in large consulting companies will be automatically successful as a freelancers. That is why we have our own specific selection process based on testing and thorough reference checking of potential Interim Managers.

The selection process of interim professionals consists of:

1
Behavioral interview with a Nuvadis consultant
2
Reference checking
3
Case study solving, if needed
4
Psychological evaluation, if applicable and requested by the client

During the interview with Nuvadis, Interim Managers are informed about practical ways of cooperation on potential projects, with specific clients. Our consultants monitor regularly their availability and new project working experience and inform about new open assignments.

Successful candidate is then listed to internal Nuvadis pool of Interim Managers and will be actively promoted among our clients.

By working with Nuvadis you will be provided with:

1
Interesting projects
2
On-time payments
3
Interesting alternative to a full-time employment contract
4
Certification for better selling options
5
Opportunities for further professional development

Our aim is to take individual care of each member of the Interim Managers’ pool cooperating with Nuvadis Interim and provide them with assignments complying with their interests and availability. However, we do not guarantee continuous co-operation with back-to-back assignments.

What is needed from a practical perspective?

1. SETTING UP A COMPANY

It is common practice for Interim Managers to operate via their own company which is preferred when working with Nuvadis Interim. Setting up a company is a relatively simple operation, but again individuals are advised to seek the advice of suitably qualified professionals to assist with this process.

2. PROFESSIONAL INDEMNITY INSURANCE

Interim Managers should have appropriate professional indemnity (PI) insurance in place to cover any claims arising from negligence, professional misconduct or health and safety infringements. Nuvadis insists that all of its Interim Managers have appropriate PI insurance cover as a safeguard for all parties involved in this type of contract. There are many insurance companies and brokers that offer this type of coverage. The level of PI insurance should be appropriate for the level of risk attached to the assignments.

3. CONTRACTS

The Interim Manager’s limited company contracts with Nuvadis Interim – thereby minimising your risk. Nuvadis Interim then has a back-to-back contract with the client.

4. TIMESHEETS

Timesheets and invoices are submitted monthly. The precise dates for submission and payments are detailed on the pay schedule, which is sent to each Interim Manager on assignment. To process any payment we will need both a timesheet and an invoice.

Career

Interim Managers are successful, skilled and practice-oriented senior executives with proven experience. They have chosen this dynamic life-style. They are motivated to change things; flexible and open to accept new challenges and opportunities.
