The company has announced that, during his leave of absence, chief financial officer Kelvin Stagg would lead the executive team instead.
“In Steve Ingham's absence, the PageGroup executive team, all of whom are highly experienced and have worked within the group for a significant amount of time, will continue to run the operations globally,” the group said.
"A further announcement will be made as appropriate," it added.
