Odgers Interim has unparalleled success in Healthcare interim management which enables us to source and provide experienced capability of exceptional calibre across a variety of disciplines, in particular to the NHS and Private Healthcare.

Our market leading position has been achieved based on the strength of our delivery and ongoing commitment to provide superior levels of service to our clients and interim managers. 

We possess an unrivalled understanding of the strategic importance and value of contribution an experienced interim can offer which is of paramount importance given the current scale of organisational transformation never before witnessed by the NHS.

Our networks are extensive and include the NHS, private health care providers, health charities, health education, government and social care both nationally and internationally.

NHS Interim Recruitment: 

You are able to access our network of exceptional talent across all functional areas across board and senior level positions.

Typical interim roles include Chief Executive, Director of Finance, Chief Operating Officer, Director of Nursing, Medical Director and Director of HR as well as interim Associate Directors.

In addition to the NHS itself, we also provide Executive Interim recruitment services to the health regulators and professional bodies.

We are equally as accomplished in providing experienced NHS capability for Consultancy Interim roles, to deliver against short pieces of work for a defined period of time.

Private Healthcare / Care sector Recruitment  

Despite falling under the umbrella term of ‘healthcare’, many of the challenges faced by the private healthcare and care sectors are entirely different to those faced by the NHS. With businesses regularly finding themselves accountable to shareholders or private equity backers as well as the regulators, the need to balance excellent quality of care with a commercial focus is imperative.

In addition to a peerless network within the sector itself, we are able to utilise Odgers Interim’s extensive private sector networks to ensure that our clients have access to the strongest interim talent from the commercial world.

Odgers’ track record in the space covers the entire breadth of the private health market, from small (<£10m t/o) family-owned operators to some of the world’s most recognised brands. In addition to Interim CEO and Board/Head of Function level roles, we have also assisted clients in need of Project/Programme Management specialists, as well as experts in Clinical Governance, Quality and Risk.

The Team

The Healthcare recruitment team has an unrivalled understanding of the sector.  This combined with a successful track record of delivery is of paramount importance when recruiting to challenging senior interim roles, which can be difficult to fill. 


"Establishing an edge over your competitors is always difficult but, in Sarah Lovell, Odgers have pulled it off. Recruiting the right people is hard enough but, when faced with ludicrous deadlines and a flood of perfectly good CVs for candidates who are probably not quite what you are looking for, it is sometimes a near impossible task. This is Sarah's territory! Over the past year she has helped us through the minefields in the recruitment of several interim executives - often in emergency circumstances. Her great strength is her ability to listen to our requirements and to openly and honestly tell us which candidates will fit, and more importantly, which ones won't. Add to this is her uncanny knack of producing candidates that the combined forces of all the other agencies failed to turn up and you have a pretty potent mix. Sarah has certainly proved her worth. She delivers on her promises and she always keeps you up to date on progress. Her insight on her clients is terrific, strengths and weaknesses, and she has yet to fail us! Well done Sarah, keep it up!"

David F Wakefield FCMA, Chairman of Bolton NHS Foundation Trust

"Odgers have been a valued supplier of interim positions for me over several years. The most impressive thing about SJ Leatherdale is her responsiveness and insight into the real needs of an organisation and ability to then source a range of individuals who offer different but valuable skills tailored to that post. Overall I would choose to work with Odgers for customer care and genuine understanding of the business needs of my organisation."

 Angela Mcnab - CEO Kent & Medway Social Care Partnership Trust
