The company claims that while speaking English alone would be sufficient in most parts of the world due to it being the dominant business language, possessing second or third languages will increase the chances of landing the most exciting and best paid positions.

‘Many of the more exciting and rewarding positions such as corporate finance are going to candidates who have a second or third language,’ said Abigail Stevens, managing director of Think Global Recruitment.

She added that Hong Kong, Singapore and China are hotspots for UK trained accountants and that language skills are a huge bonus when socialising and building client relationships.
