What is the difference between a Management Consultant and an Interm Executive Manager?

A Management Consultant is an advisor, to a board of directors or to executives, who makes qualified analysis and recommendations. However, a Management Consultant does not have any line responsibility or accountability and no authority to make key decisions.

How much does an Interim Executive Manager cost?

Engaging an Interim Executive Manager is not all about filling a vacant position in the organisation. The mission is to maintain a senior management or specialist position whilst driving a qualified change to accomplish lasting and successful results. Therefore, Interim Executive Management should be considered as an investment within the business.

Compared with the total cost for an employment with salary, pension, vacancy pay, benefits and perks, social fees, insurances, further training and, if appropriate, variable salary and bonuses, the remuneration for an Interim Executive Manager does stand very competitive.

The remuneration per month is higher than an employment. But hiring an Interim Executive Manager is very cost efficient if you also take into the account in being there with short notice, higher competence, accomplishing lasting results quickly and the lack of recruitment cost, redundancy cost and severance pay.

What is the fee to provide us with an Interim Executive Manager?

Our renumeration is the commission relating to the difference between the fees paid by the client and the fee to the interim manager.

Is it possible to employ the Interim Executive Manager after end of assignment?

Being an Interim Executive Manager is an active decision in the personal career development chosen by the individuals in our network. It is not a temporary position until the next employment. Exceptionally, circumstances exists when a Interim Executive Manager devolves to an employment. A recruitment fee is then reimbursed to Advisure.
