An insight into the housing sector
The Interim market in the Housing sector is still buoyant and continues to be driven by the need to grow and expand house building, whilst dealing with declining government finances.
Most teams have looked to sectors outside our world, to source and bring in help and support on an Interim basis. However there will always be a need for those with a strong track record of delivering within the sector, to be a help and offer vital advice, especially in the areas of customer services and housing.
Trends in recent months have seen the shift towards support around the development space with interims either coming in to lead new growth programmes or support in the delivery of an expanded pipeline.
This has led to further support required in the finance area as we look for new funding and stronger ties with our development teams. Teams are looking to bolster their areas with Interims who can add Business Partnering skills, Financial control and in some cases a brand new leader to shift the culture forward.
The overall market looks healthy for Interims in the sector moving forward; however the key issue will always be quality.
It is under this backdrop that we have expanded the Housing interim team to include Annaliese Rogers. We will have a greater degree of client relationships and widen the interim market, which will prove to be a welcome addition to clients and interims alike. We are both looking forward to supporting the sector moving forward and working with our Interims on further assignments into next year and beyond.
