recruiting Services

The right one, not just anyone.

Practicus is a leading interim management provider. We have been in the top 10 of the provider rankings every year for over a decade and in the Top 5 for the last six. You can depend on us for a decent brief, thorough vetting  and due diligence, with accurate representation of worthwhile candidates.



The world is changing. There are no business-as-usual jobs at a senior level any more. We all need to deliver against particular challenges, with particular outcomes expected. And we need to deliver quickly. We will support you in building the team you need to oversee transition and transformation in your business



In any change programme, there are likely to be straightforward needs that require an outside specialist but where budget is constrained or an interim would simply be excessive. Fixed term contractors can fill the gaps and take on specialist assignments that are uncomplicated by politics or ambiguity.
