Demand for interim managers will rise, argues recruitment chief

Third sector organisations will see a rise in demand for interim management positions as the recession takes its toll, a recruitment company has predicted.

Charles Russam, chair of Russam GMS, said more people would be entering the interim market and looking for jobs in the voluntary sector.

"We will see new entrants into the market over the forthcoming months, which means that third sector organisations will have more choice of candidates," he said.

His prediction comes after the company carried out a poll of 10,000 interim managers working in all sectors on their thoughts about the future.

The poll showed that more than 70 per cent wanted to stay in the temporary market because they thought that more short-term contracts would emerge.
