Interim Executive Service

ACOSVO’s Interim Executive Service provides third sector organisations and outgoing CEO’s completely tailored access to expert, experienced third sector Interim Executives to support leadership transition within their organisation.

 

The service can be accessed both as a support to an organisation when there is a temporary gap in leadership and/or as a support to Chief Officers in times of need. The Interim Executive Service also offers Senior Management support on a temporary basis. 

 

"By providing an objective strategic overview of the organisation, the Interim CEO was able to support the Board in making important decisions.  The Interim CEO has helped keep the organisation moving forward throughout a period of transition, working with the team to maintain momentum as well as build capacity. Maintaining the public profile and external relationships has helped ensure the organisation is still well positioned to go forward in this new and exciting phase.”
