Interim Resource

With a breadth of managerial experience and network of alliances and associates AMDS Consultants Ltd can help clients resolve shortfalls in expertise.

The supply of any interim resource is dependent on need, cultural fit and external demands. Often, consequent on projects or programmes implemented by AMDS Consultants Ltd, clients retain our services to maintain and develop performance while permanent staff are specified, interviewed and recruited

Such responsibilities are often awarded because the consultant strives to understand client needs, works within the cultural prerogatives of the organisation and provides a depth of experience quickly determining requirements, strategies, objectives and actions while rapidly scaling the learning curve.

Typical roles include

  • Programme direction and management
  • Information security responsibilities
  • Supply chain and supplier management
  • Technical authorship in complex procurements
  • Acquisition and due diligence for buyers and sellers

In every client deployment AMDS Consultants Ltd’s extensive business background and wide-ranging experience ensures much broader understanding and expertise is applied to even the simplest of requirements. AMDS Consultants Ltd truly provide a holistic approach designed to achieve and exceed the customer’s objectives.

Immediately from the engagement, the customer receives a much more rounded service than, for example, a PRINCE2 Project checklist, a spreadsheet of information assurance controls, or a well-worn model of process re-engineering. Instead the consultant provides the interpretive expertise coming from many previous engagements and an understanding of the client’s business drivers enabling them to meet and exceed the terms of the engagement.

  • Programme manager/director
  • Chief information officer
  • Single and multi-source supply chain manager
  • Customer-facing digital transformation lead
  • Data Protection officer
