Part-time interim assignments rise
The number of interim managers occupying part-time positions has increased in recent years, according to new research conducted by an online directory of executive search firms.
Headhunter Executives Online has disclosed that the number of interim managers engaged in part-time projects has risen to 20 per cent of the market in 2009, which is a seven per cent increase on 2006's figures.
However, the research revealed that the proportion of interim management specialists holding full-time placements has declined in the same period from 56 per cent to just 27 per cent this year, Recruiter reported.
The study also disclosed that in the past three years the remuneration rates of interim managers has remained unchanged, despite the variations witnessed across various industry areas.
Finally, the research discovered that the number of interim managers holding multiple part-time positions has not altered since 1996, according to the website.
The valuable role that interim managers can play within organisations was highlighted last month by Suraj Pandit, resourcing manager at Camden Council, who claimed that they can filter their knowledge to existing staff members.
