Public sector interims 'will rise'
The use of interim executives will continue to rise within the UK's public sector, according to an industry body.
The Public Sector People Managers' Association has suggested that the current financial climate – which has seen budgetary cuts and spending reviews – will boost the visibility of interim management in local authorities and the civil service boardrooms.
Speaking to the Local Government Chronicle, Jack Markiewicz identified that turnaround directors are presently being particularly used to implement equal pay agreements in large organisations.
The director of human resources at Swindon Borough Council also explained that transitional executives are more flexible than permanent board members, which means that their higher remuneration packages can be accounted for.
He told the public sector news provider: "I can see their use increasing. The need for people with significant experience or with a finance, cost-saving or transformation background is going to increase."
Last month, the transitional industry specialist Charles Wilson recommended the use of interim executives to businesses as they have the ability to implement significant changes in operations.
