Discover the benefits of a career in interim healthcare management leadership

Why Choose Interim Healthcare Positions?

You’ve worked hard to get where you are today. Are you ready for more variety in geography, work settings, and professional challenges in your career? Experienced healthcare leaders who thrive in a fast-paced environment and excel at completing complex agendas are ideal interim leaders.

Interim leadership is exciting and challenging. It is different from working as a permanent employee.

Interim leaders may step in as a consultant to help a system navigate change and often step in to ensure consistency through a leadership transition. You will work for a set contract term, taking your talents where they are needed most.

Far from it. Though you will be filling critical need for a temporary time frame, your job is crucial. As an interim, we are usually brought in to assist during troubled times. A manager left or had to leave. Processes aren’t working, workflows are inconsistent. The team is in great need of leadership and coaching. You may be asked to improve processes and workflows. You may need to re-engage the team to get things moving forward again.

Are you able to step in and complete an assessment and come up with a plan?

First, to be successful, you must have several years of leadership experience. Are you able to manage change and handle complex agendas? It helps to have a sense of adventure and thrive in new work environments.

A few things to consider:

  • Do you love change? Are you skilled at managing and driving change? As an interim leader we are usually asked to be change agents.
  • Are you passionate about nursing and nurses? The greatest joy is in re-empowering the team you are hired to lead as an interim.
  • One challenge is the need to quickly step into an unknown organization and hit the ground running. You must learn the system, meet the people and develop a plan. All this while working to meet the goals which you are directed as an interim to achieve.
