At SCL Search, our primary focus is permanent placements, but when an executive leaves their position or a critical project is underway, it’s important to secure an interim resource fast.

Whether you need an interim professional to help transform an operation or function, effectively manage logistics operations or people, we’ll help you find the right person for the time you need them.
We focus on interim roles in:
Mid- to senior-leadership and management roles
Functional specialists in supply chain planning, technology implementation, industrial engineering
Why interim staff may be needed
There are many reasons interim placements may be necessary – some planned, some unexpected.
You may need to quickly fill the position of a member of staff who has resigned or been dismissed. You may need to cover maternity, sick leave, or a sabbatical. Sometimes it is to do with business restructuring, a merger or acquisition.
You may have a specific issue to address, fix or improve, a short-term goal that needs a certain skill such as implementation of automation or a new warehouse management software.
It may be that you can’t find a permanent hire fast enough but need to fill a role in the short term while the right candidate is found.
Increasingly, businesses are choosing to hire interim executives with a specific set of skills and niche expertise to solve a problem or lead a set project. It enables them to address a temporary skills shortage without increasing headcount.
We have been proactively screening and interviewing senior supply chain talent since 2004. SCL Search was established in 2015, and has meticulously built a searchable database containing over 20,000 candidate profiles. All of these candidates have been screened by one of our professional search consultants, and all 20,000 candidates have extensive experience in the supply chain sector.
