In all its different forms, the public sector is one of the most important employers inside Germany and abroad.
The demands and challenges faced by public- and community organizations resemble those in the private sector to an ever-greater degree. Increasingly, the focus is on uncomplicated, accessible and practical products and services – for employees as well as for customers.
Growing importance is attached to digitalization and the transformation to clear, modern working practices, both internally and externally. Easy access, faster turnaround, online services and e-documentation are just some of the key issues in this context.
Unlike the private sector, the public sector must also deal with another set of very specific demands: service to the community, political issues and a high level of public interest require particular consideration.
Managers must be able to adapt to higher expectations. In addition, the increased demand for operational efficiency combined with a performance environment in the public sector requires a new style of management, more akin to that of the private sector.
The following sectors in particular are seeing a high demand for innovative and inclusive management personalities:

Unabhängig von der Wahl des eignungsdiagnostischen Verfahrens, das zum Einsatz kommt, ist unsere Philosophie immer: Wir legen Wert auf nachvollziehbare und faire Prozesse mit einer transparenten Kommunikation sowie eine valide und zugleich pragmatische Vorgehensweise.
SI Interim Management is an agency for the placement of particularly qualified interim managers in temporary management positions in Germany and abroad. When selecting our interim managers, we are open to any nationality. We pay attention to qualification, personality and integrity. Trust is our highest priority in the personnel business. This also applies without reservation to interim management. Despite all the efficiency in processing interim requests, it must be ensured that the client’s trust in the diligence of his interim management provider is justified – especially in the case of foreign assignments. That is why we take a particularly long time to carefully select our candidates. We have a great interest in conscientious selection, because every interim manager we employ is our business card.
The success of foreign investments depends on the people to whom they are entrusted. They must be ready at the right time, for the right duration and with the right qualifications. We only propose candidates with the best fit to the request, increasingly including the nationality of the target country.

In the course of the systematic assessment process, we use specially designed, structured interviews and methods of aptitude diagnostics from our specialist Executive Diagnostics group; certain online tools, for instance, can generate robust results very quickly. In order to round off our assessment, we also gather references for selected candidates.
Besides delivering a thorough screening process, we place great importance on the respectful treatment of our candidates; we aim to inspire and motivate, as well as giving honest feedback. Beyond this, we accompany the on-boarding of candidates in order to assist with their integration and long-term development.
