How will Brexit impact the accountancy jobs market?

Less than 10% of public practice professionals think Brexit will have a negative impact on the UK jobs market

Research conducted by AJ Chambers has revealed interesting insights into individuals’ opinions on the impact of Brexit on the UK jobs market. The study found that while less than 10% of individuals thought that the UK’s exit from the EU would have a negative impact on the job market in the UK, 15-20% of people believed that it would have a positive effect, particularly on the accountancy sector.

In addition, the research uncovered which benefits included in a job offer make the opportunity particularly attractive to individuals, with salary increase, career development and a benefits package being among the most popular. Interestingly, only 9% of individuals opted for moving to a larger or better known firm as being an attractive benefit, while only 4% said that making a move from practice into industry was a motivator.

Take a look at the research highlights in the infographic below, produced by AJ Chambers and Accountancy Age.
