Interim Management

Development - Development Team at Home Group; Head of New Build at The Barnet Group; Development Manager and Regeneration Managers at LB of Ealing and LB of Greenwich

With over 25 placements in housing associations and local authorities to date, our service is run on the lines of quality not quantity. For example, 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, knowledge of our clients, 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.
