THE MOST popular finance job in 2012 was that of revenue accountant, according to a survey of over 1,500 hiring finance managers.

Demand for these roles increased by 55% this year, followed by commercial finance analysts, up by 40% compared to 2011, the 2013 Michael Page Finance Salary Survey found.

Both roles are essential to support a finance department’s strategy for growth,” said Gareth Davage, managing director, Michael Page Finance.

“Across the board, we have seen a steady growth in the number of vacancies coming onto the market in the last 12 months. The most activity has been in the newly qualified to middle management level around the £30,000 to £60,000 salaries range.”

The roles which have felt the biggest impact in current economic condition include reporting analysts, which are down 256% compared to 2011, and financial reporting accountants, which are down by 125%.
