Interim Laboratory Management

Interim Managemenrt

Interim laboratory management services are tailored to meet your individual needs.

It is recognised that from time to time, many organisations require additional qualified resource to fill a vacancy or to provide additional capacity during periods of high workload.

The interim management service provides the flexibility to meet the client needs and will typically take the following forms:

  • An assignment at the client’s site for a defined period, to cover for a vacancy
  • Additional capacity during periods of high workload
  • Portfolio management. This can be conducted either at the clients’ site or from our office in Oxfordshire.

A list of capabilities is provided below.  The list is not exhaustive, for any specific enquiries not mentioned below, please contact
