Interim Roles

We help our clients access the best independent consultants and interim professionals.

Holker Watkin has built a global network of over 4,000 independent consultants to help our clients solve urgent, short-term, and interim strategic challenges. Each consultant has experience from a leading consultancy, such as McKinsey, Boston Consulting Group and Bain & Co. Most have also enjoyed successful post-consulting careers in industry, deepening their expertise before deciding to work as an independent strategy & transformation consultant.

The depth of our candidate network enables us to rapidly find a selection of suitable consultants with the right experience, suited to our clients’ specific needs for the client to choose from. We can supply individual consultants at all levels, as well as full project teams.

Our credentials

  • Over 1,000 interim search assignments successfully completed in last 10 years
  • 81% of our consultants have their assignments extended at least once
  • 68% of our consultants have their assignments extended twice or more
  • Over 85% of our clients have worked with us before
  • On average our clients make a hire from interviewing an average of just 2.4 consultants from those we propose

The business case for using our Independent Consultants


  • Our independent consultants have led successful careers at leading strategy consultancies
  • They often combine strategy with experience in industry and MBAs, so are able to guide you through strategy to implementation
  • Our consultants embed themselves fully within the client organisation, helping to create “corporate memory” and lasting change

Low Risk & Flexible

  • All consultants are interviewed and reference checked
  • Flexibility to extend or end projects at short notice
  • Short notice periods so minimal commitment needed before engaging

High value

  • We provide access to top tier strategy talent at less than half the price of strategy consulting firms
  • Clients pick just the consultant(s) they want – no “cost loading” as is often the case in consultancy teams
  • Billed monthly in arrears, only for the actual days the consultant works

Fast and straightforward

  • We typically shortlist at least 3 high-quality consultants within 72 hours
  • On average, our clients make a successful hire from interviewing just 2.4 proposed consultants
  • We handle all logistics: contract and fee negotiation, payment, and feedback
