Specialist recruiter Hayes yesterday announced 17% net fee income growth in July and August, up from 11% for the 12 months to June 30.

Similarly, Robert Walters has seen net fee income shoot up by 21% over the past eight months, The Guardian reported.

Denis Waxman, chief executive at Hays, said ‘quite big shortages’ were also driving double-digit growth in the salaries of recently qualified accountants.
