Agency workers in Germany are increasingly found in management jobs and the number of temporary workers in this profession is expected to rise by +25% in 2013. This is according to a new survey by the German association of interim management (DDIM).
Last year there were around 5,500 interim managers in Germany. Their remuneration is projected to rise above the €1 billion mark by the end of the year. This compares to around €925 million in 2012 and €825 million in 2011.
Interim managers are mainly hired when companies are undergoing restructuring processes (24%) or to fill in temporarily for vacant positions (21%). This is followed by project management jobs (20%) and jobs related to process optimisation. The DDMI expects the number of interim managers in the staffing industry to grow to around 6,200 by the end of the year which will make this sector one of the few sweet spots in the German staffing market during 2013
The German staffing market fluctuated last year with the latest figures showing the number of temporary agency workers fell by nearly -15% to 804,000 in November 2012 from 944,000 a year ago.
