THE BEST OPPORTUNITIES

Placement meeting the highest industry standards

Interim managers benefit from the national and international corporate network of butterflymanager. Since 2003 we have specialised in the successful placement of interim managers.

As a partner of IXPA (International Executive Provider Association) ensures quality and increases contacts and deployment opportunities with internationally operating companies in Switzerland and abroad.

Interim managers and customers also benefit from the service and ongoing support before, during and after an assignment.

Dr. Harald Schönfeld, Managing Director of butterflymanager GmbH

We regard the following “5 Golden Rules” as binding in fair cooperation with interim managers. Confidentiality and adherence to data privacy go without saying.

5 Golden Rules

For all-round fair play in the cooperation between interim managers and providers

Golden Rule

First come,
first served
As soon as an interim manager notices that they have already received the same enquiry from another party (e.g. from another provider), they withdraw their candidacy with the second and if necessary any subsequent inquirer. The provider will also withdraw its interest in the interim manager as soon as it notices that he or she has already been brought into play with the same customer by another provider.
You know
what you get
At the start of the enquiry, the provider and interim manager clarify the conditions: (minimum) daily rate, split of the daily rate or of the margin, expenses. The financial conditions for job interviews are also set.
Committed
before presented
Interim managers reveal parallel enquiries early on (in anonymised form) and do not have several “irons in the fire”. Conversely, providers are transparent in their supplying of information regarding the employment opportunities of the interim manager.
Accept
contract extension
Term extensions are normal and do not represent a leverage point for any side to change the conditions. Customer satisfaction has top priority. If adjustments (in remuneration) are made on the part of the customer, these are transparently and proportionally passed on in accordance with the existing conditions.
Get testimonial
for performance
Top performance is the rule. The provider ensures references from the customer and from itself.
