The Interim Management Association (IMA), who represents the sector, also highlighted stabilised growth for the sector in its latest survey (July-September, 2013). During the third quarter of last year, joint turnover by IMA members firms stood at £42m comparable to the previous quarter, and an increase of 29 per cent from the first quarter of 2013.
Jason Atkinson, chairman of the IMA, said: “Following on from the recession, there is a revived optimism within the sector. Increasing numbers of briefs are coming in to providers across both the public and private sectors, as organisations realise the value an interim can bring.
“The IMAs members are positive about the growth of the sector in 2014, and it will be interesting to see whether this is reflected in the next set of Ipsos MORI results.”
