Watermark Shares Their 2016 Annual Australian Interim Management Survey Results

During this period Watermark has seen some fascinating changes in the growth of the market, linked closely to the changing nature of the Australian workforce. The number of survey respondents has again increased from last year, matching the growth of the market, with more than 400 responses from a wide range of Interim Executives.

Key Findings:

  • Interim managers are finding work within a shorter amount of time in 2015/2016.
  • There are significantly more interims currently ‘on assignment’ this year compared to previous years.
  • Notable growth in ‘business transformation’ as the reason why interim managers are hired for their most recent assignment and growth in opportunities within Government and associated enterprises.
  • 50's is still the predominant age demographic for Australian interim managers.
