Opportunity knocks

Could interim positions be the future of communications employment in Europe?

Interim management across Europe has been enjoying steady growth over the past 10 years and futurologists predict that it will become a more significant form of hiring management expertise over the next 20. Yet, with the exception of the UK and the Netherlands, the role of interim communicator does not seem to have quite the same profile across Europe as, say, supply chain or general management. Intrigued by the difference, I set out to explore the market, understand the drivers and examine what the future may hold for interim communication professionals and recruiters across Europe.
