International Network for Building, Architecture and Urbanism (INTBAU)
The Director of this small charity was due to take 12 months maternity leave. The Trustees required a cost-effective solution to cover her role which ensured continuity, provided a “safe pair of hands” and ensured the work of the charity was developed in the interim. This needed to be delivered as cost-effectively as possible. With his knowledge of the sector, Jim was able to act as the interim Director for 12 months, working alongside the charities Trustees and other key stakeholders to develop and deliver the charity’s work programme, adding value through enhancing both strategic programmes and tactical events and services, as well as providing line management support to a central staff member.
At the end of the period Jim was able to seamlessly hand back responsibilities to the Director. As a result of Jim being able to bring his experience and expertise to bear with this charity in this way, Trustees have been confident that the organisation has progressed and not simply “marked time” awaiting the return of the Director.
