Strong demand expected for NHS Interim Managers
The NHS is expected to be at the forefront of public sector demand for interim managers this year, according to Interim Partners.
A survey conducted by the interim management supplier of 900 interim executives suggests that the top three users of interims in the public sector this year will be the NHS (42% of respondents), followed by central and local government (15% each).
Education (11%), housing (6%) and the Ministry of Defence (4%) were expected to make less use of interims.
Steve Melber, head of healthcare at Interim Partners, says: When the government started implementing its austerity drive, there was a widespread expectation that the public sectors use of interim managers would collapse but that hasnt been the case. Overall demand may be weaker, but there are areas of high demand.
Melber explains that cost-cutting programmes and mergers are key sources of demand for interim management.
IPSOS Mori research for the Interim Management Association has shown a 1% drop in daily rates for public sector interims in the year to Q3 2011 but within the health sector, daily rates rose by 6% to 707.
