Robert Cavendish closely partners with their customers, enabling the business to maintain a competitive advantage without incurring high permanent fixed costs.
We have found that companies typically turn to Interim management when they need to complete a specific project by a definite date or when they require an experienced person to fill a gap in their management team. The need to use an interim manager can occur at any time and typically needs to be resolved very quickly.

The UK interim management market has developed into a sophisticated and flexible solution for companies needing an alternative to management consultants. Not only when hiring an interim manager does it provide the client with an independent strategic insight, they also offer other very important advantages. 

Interim managers are:


  • Hands on - they advise as well as implement the strategy in hand.
  • Loyal - as it is their reputation on the line.
  • Flexible – with their approach tailored to your needs.
  • Focused - achieving their objectives is the primary goal. 
  • More cost-effective and valuable 


The advantages of working with Robert Cavendish is that you will not only experience a smooth transitional service, but you will also be building a long term relationship with us...
