General questions

interim-x.com is aimed at companies in all industries with a need for temporary managers, project managers or subject matter experts. In addition, we also offer our recruitment solutions to corporate and restructuring consultancies, law firms and investment companies.


At interim-x.com, companies and interim managers negotiate the terms of the assignment bilaterally. Contracts are also bilateral, so there is no triangular relationship.

With this model, we are making the costs of the interim management instrument transparent for the first time. Interim-x.com does not charge any hidden fees or surcharges on the interim manager's daily rate.

With interim-x.com companies reduce the cost of recruiting an interim manager by 60%-70% compared to traditional providers.


The assignment of an interim manager is usually billed and remunerated in daily rates. At interim-x.com, companies and interim managers negotiate these daily rates and other conditions bilaterally and also conclude the contract bilaterally.

It is not possible to make a general statement about the amount of daily rates. This depends very much on the type and scope of the required qualification, and also on the industry, function and responsibility or liability of the interim manager.

At interim-x.com you will find accredited interim managers with a price range of 750,- EUR to 2.400 EUR daily rate.


The average assignment of an interim manager placed via interim-x.com is just under six (6) months.

The range extends from so-called subject matter experts or industry experts, who are only mandated for a few consulting days, to bridging operational vacancies or program managers with terms of more than two years.


interim-x.com accredited interim managers are generally very mobile and therefore internationally available. We strongly recommend to address travel requirements or foreseeable stays abroad already in the tender. interim-x.com will then consider these in the pre-selection of applicants and check the corresponding availability abroad for you.


Over 1,200 interim managers are accredited at interim-x.com. The number is continuously adjusted according to demand via our accreditation process. In addition, supported by algorithms, we ensure that the profiles are meaningful and up-to-date and request accredited interim managers to make improvements where necessary.

At interim-x.com you basically have the choice whether you publish a project with your own account, search for interim managers directly in our database, or whether you leave the search and pre-selection entirely to interim-x.com. In the latter case, we only need a briefing from you and then immediately start looking for you. As a rule, we introduce you to exactly fitting candidates within 24 - 48 hours.


At interim-x.com you can choose between a purely performance-related remuneration (FULL SERVICE) or a fee-based account where you publish your projects yourself (SINGLE, MULTI and MULTI+) or search directly for candidates (UNLIMITED).

interim-x.com offers a selection of paid accounts for different purposes and recruitment volumes (see prices).


If you hire an interim manager on a permanent base subesequently to an interim mandate, we will not charge any further fees.

You have already remunerated us with the recruitment of an interim manager.


If you do not want to recruit an interim manager based on a daily rate, the cost will vary depending on the product or service selected:

Have you entrusted us with recruitment as part of our FULL SERVICE offer?
In the case of immediate permanent employment, we then charge a commission of 20% of the agreed annual gross salary.

You have identified the interim manager yourself with the help of your own account (SINGLE, MULTI, MULTI+ or UNLIMITED)?
Then you have already reimbursed us with the account fee, and we do not charge any additional commission.


Questions about products and services

Interim-x.com offers companies two different ways to recruit interim managers.

  1. With our FULL service offer we take over the search and pre-selection of interim managers for you. You will receive a pre-selection of suitable profiles from us and then decide for yourself with whom you wish to get in contact and whom you may wish to mandate. All we need from you is a comprehensive briefing and we will get started immediately.
    We charge a performance-related fee of nine (9) daily rates, which you negotiate bilaterally with the interim manager.
  2. With our company accounts (SINGLE, MULTI(+) and UNLIMITED) you can create a tender yourself - completely anonymously - and receive applications from interim managers directly in your inbox. interim-x.com takes over the pre-selection for you, so that you only receive applications from candidates that fit your requirements.
    With the account UNLIMITED you can additionally search directly in our pool of accredited interim managers and contact suitable managers. 
    Depending on recruitment volume and duration, we offer different account models (see prices).

Our FULL SERVICE offer is aimed at companies who do not want to create an account on interim-x.com themselves - for whatever reasons. In addition, this offer is also purely performance-related. If we do not find an interim manager that meets your expectations, you will not incur any costs.

Only when you mandate one of our interim managers will we receive a fee of nine (9) daily rates, which you will negotiate bilaterally with the interim manager.


Our SINGLE account is suitable for one-off needs or to get to know our services first. For a one-time fee, you can post a project for 28 days and receive pre-selected candidates from interim-x.com in your candidate mailbox in your account. After the 28-day tendering period has expired, you have 28 days to contact the applicants. There are no further costs for a mandate.


Our MULTI and MULTI+ accounts are suitable for companies with a higher recruitment volume. Post an unlimited number of projects during the term of your account and receive pre-selected candidates from interim-x.com in your applicant mailbox. We offer our MULTI account with terms of three, six and twelve months. The MULTI+ account is available with a term of 12 months.

You can use all functions of the MULTI+ account with up to four (4) employees in your company. This enables you to delegate recruitment in your company to the specialist departments or to cover your recruitment needs centrally in the HR department as part of a team.


With a MULTI account you can publish any number of projects with a duration of three, six or twelve months and receive pre-selected candidates from interim-x.com in your applicant mailbox in your account.

The MULTI+ account offers you this convenience with up to four personal accesses. This enables you to delegate recruitment in your company to the specialist departments or to cover your recruitment needs centrally in the HR department as part of a team.


With an UNLIMITED account you have access to the entire pool of accredited interim managers for a period of twelve months. While with the other accounts it is a prerequisite to first create a tender and then wait for incoming applications, you can contact any number of interim managers directly with an UNLIMITED account.

This makes this account particularly suitable for companies with a high recruitment volume and very short response times (e.g. consultancies).

In addition to the currently accredited interim managers, you will reach another 1,500 to 3,500 registered interim managers who will be informed about new projects via our project notification.

Together with the accredited interim managers, you can reach up to 5,000 interim managers with one project tender.
