Outlook brightens for interim finance

Matthew Wilcox our consultant managing the role

As we enter the final quarter of the year what does the market look like for interim finance professionals?

2016 has been an uncertain time for contractors mainly due to Brexit. It seemed like a lot of businesses held fire on hiring whilst they waited for the result of the referendum. Following the victory for the leave party there was a definite upturn in the volume of contract roles but this was swiftly followed by the usual summer holiday lull. 

So now all of this is out of the way what does the remainder of the year look like? 

The contract market should be fairly buoyant and this has been reflected in the volume of roles that Marks Sattin has registered in the last few weeks. 

The last quarter of the year is traditionally the busiest time for finance contractors so there seems to be a positive outlook for interim finance jobs at the moment. 

There is still a certain amount of uncertainty around what Brexit will actually mean long term so businesses may look to finance contractors instead of committing to permanent hires. 

Also with the traditional uptake in year end roles for the last quarter we are noticing a busier market. Candidates are now getting multiple offers and so good contractors are securing offers a lot quicker than earlier in the year. As a result of this the majority of our clients have had to speed up their interview processes to ensure they don’t miss out on the best talent in the market.

In summary the outlook for the end of the year for interim finance contractors and moving into 2017 looks bright.....
