Shared Services Interims

Interim shared service directors

Shared Services is a means of organising administrative functions to optimise the delivery of cost-effective, flexible and reliable services to all customers. The predominant reason for the introduction and implementation of a shared service to a business or an organisation is pressure on cost base. Alium’s experience is that businesses considering the introduction of a shared service often do not have internal experience of implementing a Shared Service model and seek external support with a proven track record of Shared Service programme delivery. Businesses seek individuals who will ask the difficult questions required at the outset to ensure the business understands the implications and potential challenges such a programme poses therefore mitigating the risk of failure.

Interim executives from Alium Partners can provide the high level expertise across a range of roles including:

  • Shared Service design
  • Shared Service implementation
  • Shared Services programme lead  
  • Shared Service workstream leads 
  • Head of Shared Services
  • Change Management professionals 
  • Project Management professionals

When to use an interim manager in shared services

As well as end to end programme delivery capability, our interims are experienced in programme recovery and can support businesses when programmes are failing, behind time or over budget. We can also provide interims to support the people and cultural challenges of a Shared Service programme. Employees may fear job loss, which can result in a lack of short and medium term commitment, which in turn can jeopardise a programme and the business itself.
