Specialist accounting clerks dealing with financial payments saw their salaries rise on average by 12% since 2003 across the UK and Ireland.
By region, the biggest rises for specialist accounting staff occurred in the West of England and North East with salaries rising by 41% and 35% respectively.
General accountants, PAs and office managers saw pay rises of just 4%.
Tony Oliver, financial director from Adecco said: ‘As the commercial sector continues to grow we are seeing an increased demand for workers with special skills such as accounts personnel. The data shows workers with specialist and appropriate skills are now in high demand and their salary increase reflects this. If the number of suitable and qualified personnel remain at it is current level it is likely that we will see further salary rises this year.’
