Interim managers 'want to remain in EU'

7 May 2013

The majority of UK interim managers believe the country should remain part of the European Union, new research has revealed.

With an increasing number of interims finding their specialist skills in demand among organisations on the continent, the Interim Management Association (IMA) discovered that 79 per cent of survey respondents would vote to stay in the EU.

"The UK has the most established interim market globally, and the poll has highlighted that interims are a good export of talent," said IMA chairman Jason Atkinson.

He added that many interim executives from Britain "have a strong understanding of governance and many also have strong language skills, enabling them to take their skills to new markets".

The survey was published as debate over the nation's membership of the EU intensifies, with former chancellor Lord Lawson strongly calling for the UK to quit the union.

Writing in the Times, he claimed that leaving the EU would bring economic benefits and free UK businesses from red tape.
