These may be temporary but will impact business planning and performance.
Rapid recruitment can be difficult at upper management level. Many senior positions require that three months’ notice be given before a departure, which means that any new recruits who are employed elsewhere will not be able start immediately.
This will leave the business exposed. Governance and compliance issues may present themselves, as might challenges related to commercial performance and people-management. Without the right talent, meeting these challenges can be extremely difficult.
These problems have a common solution: interim cover. When a senior member of staff departs unexpectedly, an interim manager can come in. They will hit the ground running, minimise disruption, and keep the business in good order. This will buy the time needed to install a new long-term replacement.
