INTERIM MANAGEMENT TRENDS

INTERIM MANAGEMENT TRENDS
The banking and finance sector continues to dominate the private sector interim management industry, with 28% of the share of placements in 2009, according to the Interim Management Associations (IMA) Ipsos MORI research.
 
Last year not only saw the banking sector retain its place as the number one sector, but also saw special projects overtake the HR function as the most requested interim job function with 26% of the total figure. 
 
Furthermore, leadership roles and programme/project management remain the most popular reason for hiring an interim manager, accounting for a third (32%) of all IMA assignments in 2009.  The sector also saw strong demand for business Improvement (20%) and change/transition Management (11%) roles throughout the year.  While, CEO/MD/General Manager appointments increased by three percentage points compared to annual figures for 2008.
 
IMA Chairman, Paul Botting commented on the reports:
 
The interim management sector has been focused on both the private and the public sector over the last year with the split remaining fairly even.  In a period of uncertainty, we have seen increased engagement from clients in specialist projects, where they have looked to utilise skill sets they do not have internally and only need on an interim basis. 
 
The banking sector has continued to remain the biggest sector however we have seen Local Government and Health sectors follow closely behind.  Interim Management has certainly proved its place in the recruitment market over the years, with strong demand, and we expect to see this trend continue throughout the year.
