Increased demand seen for interim managers with business continuity experience

According to new research from specialist recruitment consultancy, Robert Half Management Resources, the majority (90 percent) of UK CFOs and FDs are planning to work with experienced interim managers within their organization over the next 12 months , driven partly by the need for specialist skills in project management and business transformation.

The requirement for interim managers is strongest for project management skills (46 percent), however the focus on digitisation across all aspects of business is leading to a need for interim managers with specific skills to help with business transformation (34 percent). Management and leadership enhancement (27 percent), business continuity (23 percent) and change management (9 percent) are other initiatives that will prompt CFOs and FDs to hire interim managers over the next 12 months.
