Professionals seek new jobs when economy picks up: will put up with a pay cut

Half of the profession is lining up a new job when the economy stabilises.

Many were also prepared to move with a pay cut, according to the survey of
220 industry professionals by Martin Ward Anderson.

Nearly two thirds (61%) of respondents would consider a role that paid less
than their current or most recent position.

“It might seem counter-intuitive that such a high proportion of employed
accountants plan to look for a new job and would be prepared to receive
significantly reduced levels of remuneration. However, the reality is that many
of these people have been expected to do considerably more work by their
employers during the recession, and have little loyalty to their current
workplace,” said Paul Robinson, director of Martin Ward Anderson.
