CAIM is a co-operative network of self-employed Chartered Accountants. Each member is an independent operator, yet all co-operate and pool expertise to offer Interim management services to fill a temporary management gap or take on specific projects for clients.

The majority of members have experience at senior Financial Controller & Finance Director level in industry, but many have operated as sole practitioners or specialists in software, risk management, corporate finance etc.

Members spearhead initiatives and lead high level projects for clients which require integration with the client’s management team and Board of Directors.

Referral ethos

We have a very strong referral ethos within the network which sees members refer assignments to other members known to have the skills, sectoral expertise or availability needed for a particular client.

With this in mind, members meet every month in Dublin to network, share opportunities and to develop their professional expertise by attending talks and presentations from guest speakers.


Membership of CAIM gives you access to:

  • A large network of potential clients across an array of industries
  • A referral network of like-minded peers
  • A continuous professional development via regular training sessions


The annual fee is €240.


  • Members must be FCA and have at least 10 years post qualification experience.
  • Prospective members are entitled to attend one meeting and are treated as if they are members for two months from the time they are introduced to the group before they are expected to pay their fee. This gives time to ensure the group meets your expectations.
  • Members are responsible for their own Income tax/Professional Indemnity insurance etc.
  • We do not charge any fees for referrals to clients or fellow members and there are no commissions involved.
  • Members are on contract with clients.
