3 Top Tips for Attracting HR Interim Professionals

Attracting talented HR interims is an important task for any organisation looking to fill a temporary gap in their HR operations.

The right interim can bring valuable experience, skills, and expertise that can help your organisation move forward.

Encompassing HR Heads, Heads Resourcing Group has continued to see huge demand from clients looking to bring in short to medium-term support. Our expert consultants within the interim management team can help to find a solution.

Jen Gaster explores three ways to attract the best HR interims:

Offer competitive daily rates:

One of the most effective ways to attract talented HR interims is to offer competitive daily rates.

Interims are highly skilled professionals who are in demand, so it’s important to offer them remuneration commensurate with their skills and experience.

As professional interim recruiters, the team at HR Heads can best advise on the daily rate your organisation will need to offer to entice the best talent.

Highlight your company’s unique opportunities and challenges:

Another way to attract talented HR interims is to highlight the unique opportunities and challenges that your organisation presents.

Interims are often looking for new opportunities that will allow them to showcase their skills and expertise and are adept at parachuting into organisations.

If your organisation is facing new challenges or about to embark on a change / transformation project such as physical restructuring or cultural engagement, interims may see these as great opportunities to prove their worth and make a meaningful impact.

Establish a strong reputation for working with interims:

Finally, one of the most effective ways to attract talented HR interims is to establish a strong reputation in the area.

Interims are often looking for organisations that value their skills and expertise, and that are committed to providing a supportive and productive work environment.

If your organisation has a strong reputation for working with interims, it will be easier to attract the best talent.

Attracting talented HR interims is essential for any organisation looking to fill a temporary gap.
