Odgers Interim – one of the UK’s leading interim management recruitment firms which has an office in Manchester– has this week announced that its turnover has increased by 22% in the last twelve months to £33.5m (ending April 2014) – up from £27.5m the previous year.
Odgers Interim was established in 1999 and now operates from eight offices around the country (London, Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow & Aberdeen). It specialises in the placement of interim executives at all levels across and various disciplines in both the public and private sectors; including local and central government, health, arts & heritage, manufacturing, charities, education, financial services, private equity, retail, EMI, life sciences, technology and business support services.
Under the leadership of Grant Speed, Managing Director, the firm has continued to focus on a number of core growth areas which it believes will place it strongly for the future; these include the project & programme management, financial services, health and education spaces. It has also announced several key new senior appointments over the past 12 months and has launched a practice devoted to private equity roles.
All of this has been supported by a targeted marketing and communications programme that has encompassed advertising, media relations and the staging of 10 events across the UK.
Grant Speed (pictured) said: “These results are positive news for the firm but for us it’s all about planning for the future and building on what we’ve already achieved. The economy is looking stronger - and confidence is growing - so it’s vital to ensure our offering is tailored to what’s actually needed and where the demand is coming from. We’ve worked hard to understand our clients, the factors that affect their individual sectors and how the skills of our interims can add value. That is at the core of our business and won’t change as we continue to grow and develop over the coming years.”
