first_imgInterim management market sees slowdownOn 5 Nov 2002 in Personnel Today The interim management market has shrunk by 8 per cent over the secondfinancial quarter. Daily rates have stayed the same, but interim management providers’ share ofthe market has worsened as some interims have started to bypass providers andsell direct to clients. The Russam GMS quarterly snapshot of the interim management market showsJuly and August were slow, as expected, and an upturn in September failed tohappen. It reveals that last quarter’s increase in part-time interim managementhas been reversed and is now 34 per cent of all interim work carried out, downfrom 38 per cent. The snapshot also reveals the average daily rate has not changed at £489,but masks significant regional variations. The average rate for HR interims is£456, down from £477 a year ago. The research shows that 47 per cent of interim managers were on assignmentat the end of September 2002, compared with 51 per cent three months previouslyand 51 per cent at the same time last year. Of interims on assignment, 38 percent were introduced to clients by providers, compared to 40 per cent for theprevious quarter. www.russam-gms.co.ukInterims’ daily rateSouth of England:          £558Central England:           £492North of England:         £473 West of England:          £424Source: Russam GMS Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed.

County Officials Plan Caucus To Replace Sheriff

first_imgRipley County Sheriff Tom Grills announced that he will retire eight months before his second term is set to end. Due to state statute for elected officials, he had to submit a resignation letter rather than simply announce a retirement. His last day in office will be Tuesday, April 1.Now, Ripley County Republican Chairman Ginger Bradford will organize a caucus to select a replacement that will fulfill the duties of the office until December 31.The caucus will be held between April 13 and April 18, Bradford indicated.The timing of Grills resignation puts an interesting spin on the course of events, as the May Primary is scheduled just a month and six days after his last day in office. There are five candidates running for sheriff, including three republicans and two democrats.Grills was elected as a Republican candidate, therefore, a member of the same party must replace his seat in office.Bradford is unsure if one of the three republicans running for sheriff in the primary election would be elected through the caucus. It would appear as if the party is endorsing a candidate, which is a situation Bradford would like to avoid.She added that if someone from outside of the office would be elected through the caucus, they could likely be out of a job on December 31.County officials are seeking individuals to file for candidacy for the April caucus. If interested, contact Bradford at (812) 756-0778 at least 72 hours before the caucus is held.last_img read more
