Posh and Becks aspirations
In this Autumn's salary survey, we asked accountants whose job they would most like to have.
Only 3% said they would opt for Sir David Tweedie’s role at the International Accounting Standards Board. Some 17% of female respondents, meanwhile, opted for Victoria Beckham’s ‘job’ and 25% of male respondents hanker after David Beckham’s. Contrast this with another finding: 70% of accountants believe some senior executives are paid too much. Clearly, you don’t think the same of pop stars and footballers.
