Accountancy hungry for new graduates
Salaries and vacancies available to young accountants on the up
It has never been a better time to be a young graduate pursuing a career in
accountancy according to research released by the Association of Graduate
The AGR surveyed 235 of the UK’s leading employers and found that graduate
vacancies in accountancy and professional services were 22.5% up and that
starting salaries were up by 2.9%.
‘Organisations are still seeing the added value graduates can bring with
vacancies rising significantly and salaries continuing to grow,’ said Carl
Gilleard, chief executive of the AGR.
