Fractional Leaders

Tap into our network of flexible, part-time, or short-term leaders

Why hire a Fractional Leader?

Here’s what we’re hearing from our early-stage and established clients in Edtech and Workplace Development:

“We need to hire someone senior with a proven track record, but just don’t have the budget for a full-time leader right now”

“We need someone senior to set things up for us; after a while, we won’t need them full time”

“While we’re searching for a permanent appointment, we desperately need the function covered”

“Our needs are changing constantly; we need someone great, but can’t commit to a permanent hire”

All of these (and more) are the reasons our clients are choosing to hire fractional leaders. 


How does it work?


Step 1.

We brief with you on your needs, and what you’re looking to achieve with this hire.


Step 2.

We tap into our network of proven leaders to identify the right fit


Step 3.

You interview until you’re satisfied to make an appointment


Step 4.

You contract directly with the candidate, on an independent contractor basis (we help to negotiate terms if needed)

Tap into our network of proven leaders in the following functions:

  • Sales & Business Development (CRO, CSO, GTM)
  • Marketing (CMO, Head of Brand, Communications, Growth)
  • Operations (COO, Head of Operations)
  • Finance (CFO, Head of Finance)
  • People (CHRO, Head of People)
  • Product (CPO, Head of Product)
  • Technology (CTO)

In early-stage companies, our leaders frequently take on individual contributor roles, helping to establish the function, find new customers, or hire a team.

"Rebel Girls owes much of its success to Debbie - She is an incredible asset for me and for the company, and I can’t imagine functioning without her. She is very smart, very strategic, and very experienced with execs and startups."

Jes Wolfe,
CEO: Rebel Girls

"Debbie has changed the game for us in terms of a recruiting partner. I haven't really seen anything close to Jack Hammer’s ability to dial-in actual business needs and deliver talent. More importantly, Debbie is an awesome person/founder/leader whose trust and advice are in rare company."

Michael Hemlepp,
CEO: Honorlock (USA)

"The Jack Hammer Fractional Leaders team is fantastic. They do their homework and made the time to really get to know me – which meant that my recent appointment has been an excellent match. It’s unusual to find this level of professional ‘high touch’ engagement in the fractional world – but they manage to do this really well."

Brian Mahoney,
Fractional Growth Leader (USA)
