Interim search

Because AAW Search is both well-connected and trusted, some of the best talent in the sector is coming to talk to us and work with us.

Our interims bring high standards, fresh ideas and abundant talent. We can help place these highly-skilled and experienced people in charities of all sizes, both within the UK and internationally.

Our goal is to provide our clients with real choice when selecting an interim. With an extensive pool of talent, we would typically aim to offer 3 or 4 candidates for every role and we only charge if one of our candidates is appointed, making this a no-risk approach for clients. Our fee structure for interim placements is highly competitive and flexible.

AAW Search provided me with a highly professional search service, rooted in understanding our needs and coupled with their outstanding sector knowledge. All in all, I was delighted at the outcome.

Why use interims

The list is long – you may not be sure of what you need in a role or you may be restructuring your organisation. Your Head of Individual Giving may be going on maternity leave in a few months’ time or your Director of Fundraising may have left suddenly. 

Having key leadership or technical gaps in an organisation while you recruit a replacement can have a negative impact on both income and team morale. Our interim candidates will bring in fresh ideas and energy.

Our interim offer is readily available to charities of all sizes and many of our clients find that the quality of talent in interim candidates we can suggest is of a far higher standard than they have seen before.

I needed a new director of fundraising, on an interim basis, while I set about the task of recruiting permanently. I have been a fundraising director so I was ready for it to be a long haul. One call to Mark at AAW and within 48 hours I had a great shortlist and within two weeks I had a super fundraiser in post. Even better, 3 months later I offered them the full-time position. AAW provide a fast and thoroughly professional service. They know their stuff, briefing is easy and based in reality - they just get it.
