I’m Mark Astarita and I lead AAW’s Interim Practice.
Having managed hundreds of people at the Red Cross and in other roles, I have access to extremely talented interim candidates who have all held senior level roles in fundraising and other areas in the voluntary sector. If you are looking for an interim Communications or Fundraising Director or an interim CEO you should speak to me. Because AAW is well-connected and trusted, some of the best talent in the sector is coming to talk to us and work with us.
Candidates, why Interim?
Many of the interims that we work with like the choice and flexibility being an interim offers: the chance to take on new challenges or causes they have not worked for before, or the opportunity to be more flexible with hours around childcare, lifestyle or educational commitments. Interim roles can turn into permanent ones.
