Accounting jobs ‘hot’ in Glasgow

Figures show close to 3000 new permanent jobs were created in the Glasgow’s finance sector, most of them accounting jobs

Figures from Joslin
Rowe
show that 2,930 new permanent positions – up from 2,050 last year –
were created in the finance sector in Scotland over the third quarter of 2007,
most of which were accountancy or investment vacancies in Glasgow.

According to Margaret Dyer, Joslin Rowe director, the credit crunch and
sub-prime crisis did not appear to affect firms in the country and those
applying for jobs in the area were offered tempting remuneration packages.

Accountancy employment were ‘very hot’ and hiring firms were enticing people
on board with increased benefits and tailored career progression.

Strong candidates were receiving multiple offers, often finding a new
position within just weeks of starting their search. The average advertised
salary in Scotland is reportedly the second highest in the UK after London.
