Almost two-fifths (39%) of accountants in the UK are operating at board
level, according to research by the ICAEW
and recruitment consultancy Robert Half
Finance & Accounting.

This corresponds with the fact that 67% of
FTSE 100 qualified
accountants acting as finance director or CEO have an ACA qualifications – four
times more than any other single qualification, the research found.

The survey also revealed that the high demand for the skills of chartered
accountants means that the average salary for those working in business is
nearly £80,000.
