Data published by the Interim Management Association (IMA) shows that the private/public gap has widened "significantly" in the past 12 months, with 61 per cent of interim managers being employed in the private sphere, compared with a 50/50 split in 2009.
Jason Atkinson, chair of the IMA and managing director of Russam GMS, said there are a number of influencing factors to be taken into account, such as the flexibility in uncertain times that interim sales managers and other leaders can provide.
"Clearly, we welcome the buoyancy that we are seeing in the private sector when it comes to deploying interim assignments and believe it is indicative of how companies are using specialist resource to help them drive economic recovery," he added.
Meanwhile, UK workers would prefer it if there were more female managers in the UK, according to a new study carried out by Randstad.
