HR Interim Management

HR Interim managers are a short-term solution, that bring long-term results.

The beauty of a good interim is they manage themselves, resulting in less work for you and a weight off your mind.

Chiara Consultancy has a proven, successful track record in business change. Joining your team, or acting as a standalone function (anything from six weeks to 12 months), we’ll understand your business, assess the brief, deliver what you need and make a positive impact – quickly.

Do you need…

  • expert help to deliver a specific project you cannot deliver by using your existing team?
  • to manage HR change or bring in skills without adding to your permanent headcount?
  • a skilled HR professional with years of experience and a depth and breadth of specialist skills? Someone who has an extensive and trusted network of contacts and uses a strategic consultancy approach with a focus on practical, cost-effective delivery and speedy implementation?

Our recent projects include:

Employee engagement and experience

Designing an innovative global communications campaign which was part of a successful project to move to a new engagement survey tool which, improved data analytics and meant the business could measure actions both internally and against competitors.

Project managing a Managed Service Programme for contractor recruitment

Leading an IT and culture-change project for a global asset manager working with two partners and using a new online system. This resulted in a cultural change for recruitment, resolving complex IT security and systems issues, moving 74 contractors and 28 agency partners over to the new approach within six months and helping the business maintain relationships and achieve costs savings of £1.5m.

Project Management for a major transformation change project

This blue chip FTSE company needed to streamline six separate learning and development functions into one new business structure. In this complex, large-scale change project we worked with the client to successfully merge the IT technical requirements, the L&D finance and budgetary needs and the training service provision for 12,000 employees using an outsourced HR Shared Service model as part of a £50m cost saving transformation programme.

Setting up people management development functions following business restructures

This niche financial services client needed to invest in developing and retaining their people following a change of ownership and major business restructure.  We introduced and rolled out a new performance management /appraisal system, delivered FSA/FCA compliance-based, business critical training to tight deadlines and used tech to maximise staff training opportunities increasing business knowledge and engagement levels.

Team turnaround

This unionised, central government department had a central support team that they felt lacked a clear purpose, direction and a focus on delivery.  Together, we improved the provision of accurate financial and management reporting and HR services and set up an efficient, recruitment function before successfully recruiting – and handing over to – the new, permanent team leader.

Recruitment drive and delivering HR

The MD of this fast growing consultancy wanted to have HR without adding to the bottom line and headcount.  Chiara Consultancy provided a standalone HR function – managing, successfully recruiting and welcoming 45 people; and introducing new HR processes for induction, training, appraisals, objective setting and ongoing performance management.  All this helped directors and line managers to manage people themselves and resulted in achieving Investors in People status – a badge of their commitment to people management and development.
