Discover the 5 Myths Sabotaging Your Hiring Strategy

As you know, vacant positions are extremely costly to your organization.

But even the best talent acquisition teams and executive search consultants need time to find highly qualified candidates to fill your open position. Ropella has one of the fastest track records in the industry, with your first slate of candidates being presented within 10 business days, and a 60 day average time to completion.

But if you need help NOW, a consultant or interim executive to show up tomorrow — Ropella can engage a syndicate of consultants and interim executives who are more than qualified to fill the gap immediately.

What are Interim Executives?

Ropella's Interim Executives are highly qualified leaders who are ready to step in on short notice - within 24-48 hours - and begin contributing on their first day. Their placements are temporary, typically 3 to 6 months.

Although Ropella matches you with an executive in our network, the Interim Executive is your full-fledged employee during this period. They are there to manage through change, rather than to consult or advise, and are thus fully accountable for their results. (They can even help with selection and onboarding of your permanent hire, if you need that assistance.)
