Synogis, the network for senior-level freelance consultants and interim managers, says that demand for its members services is growing rapidly.
Richard Ilsley, founder of the network, says: “In a recession, many businesses seek to cut short-term costs by ‘letting go’ many of their long-standing, most experienced and, often, most expensive managers. When recovery is in sight, they may find that they have lost the necessary experience and knowledge to take full advantage of the business opportunities.
“Services such as ours offer businesses the opportunity to access that pool of expertise without the expense of recruitment.”
Since it’s ‘soft launch’ earlier this year, Synogis has seen its network of senior business people grow to over 150 – and it is now growing at over 30 per month. New members are recommended by existing members or have to demonstrate the necessary skills and experience to be admitted.
“It’s this quality control which sets us apart from other networks,” explains Richard. “Any business or organisation coming to us to put together a virtual support team or recommend a shortlist of interim managers knows that our resource pool has already been vetted. And our business model means we don’t take a commission or charge a fee to businesses and organisations for our services.”
