Interim Staffing

Often organizations find themselves with a task that does not require a full time staff member, or they have a time-defined vacancy (often due to family leave) or functions that are ongoing and cannot wait until a staff member can be found. At Alford Executive Search, we understand that your organization needs to continue to function smoothly even when (and often especially when) there are staffing disruptions.

For Interim support, we can often provide an immediate solution, whether from our own team, our Strategic Partners, or our broad network of professionals that can undertake a special project, provide part-time consulting or temporarily fill a critical role so your organization can focus on its mission and overall objectives.

Recent types of positions for which we have provided Interim support, whether as a standalone project or as part of a larger search partnership, include:

  • President and CEO / Executive Director
  • Chief Financial Officer
  • Chief Advancement/Philanthropy/Development Officer
  • Database Administrator
  • Special Events/Annual Fund

In support of your specific needs, we work with leadership to define the scope and depth of involvement needed, and then serve those needs onsite and/or offsite with a flexible approach that fits your culture and schedule.

The outcome of these engagements varies by need, but overall, our clients share that they not only met the interim/gap need with our expertise, but our team helped them further more goals and projects than anticipated.
