RESULTS: Odgers Interim SME revenues nearly double
Wed, 9 May 2012
The SME [small-to-medium sized enterprises] division of interim provider Odgers Interim has seen turnover for the 12 months ending April 2012 reach £3.5m, up from £1.9m in the previous period.
The division was founded in 2010 and the company is projecting a rise of £1m in turnover across the current year. It also hopes to increase the number of placements made from 70 to 90.
Grant Speed, managing director of Odgers Interim, says: “The government hopes that SME sector is going to bring the economy out of recession but many small- to medium-sized businesses are still struggling to secure finance, so permanent recruitment isn’t always an option open to them.
“This has meant a real upturn in the demand for specialist interims – especially those in marketing, business development, turnaround, financial management and procurement.”
