High demand for accountants in Ireland

Some senior vacancies taking months to fill

The demand for qualified accountants in the Republic has reached new heights
according to practitioners attending The Institute of Certified Public
Accountants in Ireland’s (ICAI) annual practitioners’ conference in Galway this
year.

Firms have experiencing difficulties in satisfying their recruitment needs,
according to the ICAI with some vacancies, particularly at a senior level,
taking up to four months to fill.

A survey of those attending found that 30% of CPA firms and practices have
vacancies for both junior and senior accountants.

’With salary rates on the increase, market demand stronger than ever and the
profession offering increasingly diverse and attractive career opportunities,
accountancy is fast becoming the career of choice for the ambitiously minded
individual,’ said Brendan Allen, vice-president of the ICAI.
