Interim Professionals helped us identify an interim financial planner to support our SOC and OBC at THH. Nicola understood the brief and deadlines we were working to and supplied us with an excellent shortlist, we appointed a very strong candidate who has exceeded expectations. I would recommend Interim Professionals for their responsiveness, knowledge of candidates and ability to find the right person under pressure.David Meikle Interim Director of Finance, The Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
A few months ago I took early retirement after 36 years in the NHS. After 4 months I really wanted to go back to work. Interim Professionals was recommended by an old colleague. The first job I was put forward for I got and that was thanks to Giles who ensured I understood the role and had all the background I needed. I’ve never been an interim and it was scary. However Giles and his team are responsive, efficient, caring, friendly and extremely supportive. I cannot recommend Interim Professionals enough.Helen Smart Programme Director and FT NED
We needed a specific set of financial skills to support our strategic developments. After taking the time to gain a good understanding of our Trust, the sort of skills that we were looking for, Interim Professionals were able to provide a list of a number of candidates that proved capable of providing what we needed. It struck me that Nicola Brooks knows her candidates well and ensures they are right for the projects being listed for.Don Richards Chief Financial Officer West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust
Having worked with Rupert on two occasions I have found his in-depth knowledge and understanding of the healthcare market to be exceptionally high. Rupert is a genuine person, has a positive outlook and loves solving a problem. We have worked on two high profile quality improvement projects working in partnership with NHSI and the CQC and Rupert has always been supportive when working within a challenging environment. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a responsive and objective approach and want a quality outcome and sustainable solution.Liz Seale Quality Improvement Director - St George’s University Hospitals NHS Trust
I have used Interim Professionals on several occasions and have always found them to be extremely responsive. Giles Farmer their MD, is particularly attentive and takes the time to dig into the role and to understand that the type of individual that will fit with your organisation. I was impressed by his questioning of “what kind of fit do you want in your organisation, someone challenging, or motivating and engaging, someone that will make hard decisions and hold people to account or someone that will develop you in house leadership.Joe Smyth COO Isle of Wight NHS Trust
I have found Giles to be efficient and reliable in all my dealings with him. A credible business partner with whom I would happily work again.Director of Strategy Acute Hospital
