Profession is failing to attract graduates
Survey finds many accountants worried about where new blood is coming from
Not enough is being done to attract new graduates to the profession, or to
study the subject, according to a survey of accountants.
Of the 477 accountants questioned in the UK, 44% are worried about what the
profession is doing to attract new blood.
The most popular solutions offered by those surveyed included changing the
perception of the profession, improving training programmes, greater university
involvement and a better breadth of benefits.
The “Future of Accountancy” survey by careersinaudit also found that a
quarter of those asked thought the application process could be improved.
