International demand for interims is increasing

A fifth of senior interim executives said that they completed an assignment outside of the UK in the last year.

The survey by Alium Partners has resulted in the interim management solutions provider expanding internationally. The firm has seen demand for interims to deliver projects in areas such as Europe, North America, the Middle East and Asia and so has developed more on-the-ground platforms.

The demand wasn’t specific to one sector either. According to Alium Partners overseas demand has been across a range on industries and many organisations are now hiring teams of interims rather than individual executives.

Mike Hollin, CEO of Alium Partners, said: “The global downturn has been a catalyst to the recognition of the value of senior interim executives across the world and we have responded aggressively to this demand by building our global network of in-country businesses and by sourcing the right talent directly from our headquarters.

“In the last few months, for instance, from London we have placed talent for major change management projects in Abu Dhabi, Qatar and Poland.  This is an exciting time for the firm and we look forward to developing our global platform further in the coming months.”
