Nearly half of the UK’s commerce and public practice organisations expect to
struggle to recruit accountants over the next few months, according to a survey
by the ECHM recruitment consultancy.
ECHM surveyed 690 companies and organisations and found that a third were
planning to recruit for accountancy roles over the next 12 months.
John Hunter, chief executive of ECHM, was not surprise at the strong growth
in finance jobs over the past 12 months.
‘This underlying confidence in the accountancy recruitment market is further
demonstrated by the fact that 21% of accountants are intending to change jobs
during the next year,’ he said.
Just under a quarter (23%) of the 690 firms surveyed by the ECHM recruitment
consultancy said they were implementing new recruitment initiatives.
