Welcome to Interim Management Jobs

Product Development & Innovation

Businesses working within the FMCG sector face a constant battle to meet the needs of an increasingly discerning and judicious consumer. The need to bring improved and more innovative products to market has never been greater and businesses need to recruit talented and creative people with a sophisticated understanding of the consumer to remain relevant within the sector. Businesses need to develop existing products and introduce new products and get them to market as quickly as possible to satisfy consumer tastes and trends.

The speed at which FMCG businesses need to move in the development of products has never been greater, as competitors with ‘first to market’ advantages are utilising social media to quickly build fans and followers. Within the FMCG sector time to market is particularly important as Consumer products can quickly become obsolete. Product development, Innovation and Consumer knowledge professionals need to work in synergy with sales, marketing and operations, to ensure the right products are brought to market in an expedient manner.

Our team has a long history of working with top tier FMCG businesses sourcing skills and talent for interim roles within Product Development, Insights, Brand, and Innovation. Our recruiters offer extensive experience interpreting complex interim requirements and placing Interim Managers for specific assignments such as quickening the NPD pipeline or one-off NPD projects, or as Functional Managers to fill a ‘gap’ providing cover for: secondment, long-term absence, holiday cover, maternity leave.
