Our interim services see us work closely with clients to meet their needs – placing experienced, high quality interim executives who add value immediately.

All of the interims we supply go through a rigorous assessment and referencing process. Equally importantly, when on placement, our interims become part of our Altair team – with regular access to our expertise, and knowledge of our wider team, bespoke tools, market intelligence and network of contacts. This means that our interims are always up to date, have a good understanding of the sector and can deploy rapid solutions to the benefit of their clients.
