The company’s employment index shows a growth in financial regulation and reporting requirements should propel demand for accountants across the City.
Ken Brotherston, chairman of Morgan McKinley, said that 2005 is ‘shaping up to be a good solid year’ for the financial services recruitment market in London.
The report showed the trend in salaries for 2004 was generally upwards, with average City salaries increasing by 3.69%.
The highest salary rises were for middle-market professionals (financial controllers, junior analysts, and product controllers) and administrative/support staff. These had respective increases of 13.8% and 6.9% over the past 12 months.
Brotherston said that ‘the overall salary pressure is reasonably under control, as bonuses continue to hold significant weight in the make-up of total compensation packages.’
