If you have a current gap within your work force, then taking on a skilled and experienced individual on an interim or short term contract basis can often be the ideal solution. Your need may well be due to a variety of reasons – a new project, maternity cover, product launch, a capex project or simply filling a crucial gap whilst you are trying to find a permanent replacement for someone who has left. Whatever the reason, interim is becoming more and more widespread across the food manufacturing industry – we have seen our interim contracts rise by over 450% since 2012!
Generally interim candidates fall into two categories – those that are “full time” interim contractors, most likely working under their own limited company and for a day rate, and those who are happy to consider some temporary work whilst they look for the next permanent opportunity, most likely paid on a pro rata salary basis. The latter can sometimes be ideal if you are also looking for a permanent person by giving you the opportunity to “trial” someone with a view that if they are right for the job then you can take them on full time – two birds, one stone!
Typically our interim roles cover:
- project management
- supply chain
In terms of our fee structure then please contact us for full details. However, we are very competitive and we are always happy to work out bespoke packages for individuals clients which cover fixed fees, combined fees (interim and permanent), pro rata fees, payment terms and even running an interim through our own PAYE system.
So, whether you are looking for a “full time” contractor specifically looking for interim work, or you’re happy to take one someone waiting for the right permanent role to come up, then contact us today to see how we can help you plug that gap!
