Interim recruitment continues to grow in Q1 2012
The interim management sector grew by 18 per cent in the first quarter of 2012 as more businesses sought to take on short-term managers.
This is according to new research conducted on behalf of the Interim Management Association (IMA), which revealed an average of 79 enquiries per IMA member firm were submitted in the opening three months of the year.
Ipsos MORI, which conducted the study, also found the number of new assignments rose by a fifth in the same period and chairman of the IMA Jason Atkinson said the results show the sector is booming.
"This is an industry where Britain leads the world," he remarked, adding: "Interim managers are experienced executives with specialist skills and a track record of achievement."
The sector has been undergoing sustained growth for around half a decade, as data released by the IMA earlier in the year indicated the amount of business generated by leading interim managers rose to £196 million over the past five years, an increase of 93 per cent.
