The interim market has seen significant change over the last five years with high levels of growth and an increasing number of candidates deciding to become a career contractor. With flexibility and work life balance a high priority for much of the current workforce, moving into the interim market can allow for a better balance in these areas. Interim roles also allow professionals to build on their existing skill set and work on challenging projects to bolster their experience outside the standard permanent role profile.
For companies, the demand for interim and contract workers is one that continues to grow due to the increasing pace of organisational change, the continuing drive for a leaner workforce, and ever changing regulatory requirements. Hiring an Interim can allow businesses to scale up their finance provision in busy periods or can provide a specific skill set for individual projects which will contribute to the organisation’s growth. Rutherford Cross has a strong track record of working with a variety of emerging and established businesses around Scotland and across multiple sectors to deliver interim solutions.
