Commission seeks new interim managers

The Charity Commission is advertising for new interim managers to temporarily run charities whose governance has broken down.

Interim managers are appointed by the commission under its statutory powers when it discovers "misconduct or mismanagement in the administration of a charity" or judges a charity's assets to be under threat. The managers are chosen from a list of approved practitioners and paid from the charity's own funds.

A commission spokeswoman said the recruitment process was part of a general review of the commission's interim management procedures that would see interim managers used in a wider range of cases and incorporate "clear exit strategies and measurable outcomes".

She said: "Given that it has been four or five years since the last review, it is appropriate to conduct a further review now. The commission is inviting existing approved practitioners to reapply, and other interested parties to apply, for inclusion on the list."

The new list will be organised on a regional basis and will include a range of people from across the sector. Applicants can be firms, organisations or individuals. The closing date is 14 November.
