Interim Staffing Services

Contoural offers both interim and ongoing onsite records management and Information Governance staffing services at a variety of experience levels

The Challenge of Meeting Immediate Needs

Filling a short-term gap for an interim records management or Information Governance position can be daunting. Finding the right person with up-to-date skills who is available quickly and on a transitional basis is also difficult. Many programs only require a part-time resource on an ongoing basis; Records Management and Information Governance activities need to be performed every month, but for some organizations, the workload does not justify a full-time resource. Furthermore, finding the right level of individual from coordinator all the way through director, training them and maintaining their skills, and connecting them with an internal skills network can be challenging. Finally, while many organizations have need for these services, they do not have the day-to-day time or internal resources to manage these individuals and functions.
