An interim Communications Manager works both strategically and operationally
An interim Communications Manager is responsible for the company’s external and internal communications, a central role in all organizations. The role usually includes broad responsibility for, for example, developing a strategic communication and crisis plan, setting and coordinating messages, PR and IR, producing the annual report together with the finance function and supporting managers in their communication with the organization and the public.
“It is decisive for an organization to have a well-functioning communication with owners, stakeholders, clients, and employees. If the right competencies are missing internally, an interim Communications Manager can create stability and secure sustainable and long-term results.”
An Interim Manager starts immediately with creating sustainable results
When the right competencies are lacking internally, the situation can quickly become critical. In such cases, it is a good idea to engage an interim Communications Manager who can directly take the lead of the function and kick-start a change by setting the right strategy, right processes, and right structures. With long experience in leadership, an interim brings his/her organization with him/her during a change. The interim Communications Managers we work with all have extensive experience in handling different types of situations, know what needs to be done and ensure that it is carried out. In this way, it is ensured that quick results, which are decisive for the success of the business, are achieved.
