Accountants confident about recruitment prospects

ECHM survey paints upbeat picture for accounting recruitment over next year

A survey by head hunters ECHM has revealed that the accounting recruitment
market is set for a bumper year.

In a survey of 460 finance professionals across the UK, ECHM found that the
overwhelming majority of accountants working within commerce and public practice
are optimistic about the job market for 2006.

Confidence is strongest in London & SE (79.4%) closely followed by
Yorkshire & NE (77.8%) and lastly Manchester & NW (62.6%)

Accountants were also generally satisfied with their remuneration packages.
Nearly four out of five respondents working in Yorkshire & NE were happy
with their pay and benefits compared to 60.4% in London & SE and 60.2% in
Manchester & NW.

In terms of work life balance, however, Londoners reported the worst
work/life balance with only 49% satisfied compared to 61% in Manchester &
NW and 57% in Yorkshire & NE.
