Featured Case studies
Interims are proving their value in every single transformation, in many different ways. Clients in every sector are achieving strategic, financial and efficiency benefits by employing interim professionals.

We were undertaking a major change management programme, transforming our culture into a commercial organisation.

Russam understood the challenges that we faced and sourced highly experienced interims to work with us and help us transform the organisation into the modern, commercial and successful company that we are today
Kath Hollister, HR Director, Ericsson, Red Bee Media

Companies don’t create value from legacy thinking of what has gone before, the opportunity for the WIL Group’s approach is therefore huge – it offers the platform to disrupt, and then to create new value.
Antony Perillo, Group Director Sourcing & Product Development, Clarks
We chose Russam for our interim resourcing roles for a few simple reasons: They understand our business and they deliver on our business requirements. They deliver the right people, with the right skills, for the right project. We have now taken on two senior interim project managers that have helped us to deliver on our business plan

As organisations move through various transformations in today’s difficult economy, the flexibility and expertise offered by interim managers is invaluable. These are fluid times and a fluid approach to resourcing strategies is vital if organisations are to remain competitive. Highly skilled interims offer precisely that support
Penny Davis, People and Talent Director (former), Balfour Beatty
Russam really understand our business and have formed a strong relationship that goes way beyond recruitment. The principals have deep industry knowledge and the company hosts thought provoking networking events and invite us even when we are not working with them.
