November 2018

Salaries for accounting roles across the UK saw a massive jump of 8.8% in September, when compared with data from the same period in 2017.
This hike in pay means that the average salary for accounting professionals has reached a record high of 34,660. This compares favourably to average legal
salaries of 34,660, but not with those in IT, which are averaging 44,090. The figures were compiled by CV-Library, who say that the on-going skills shortages are a prime reason for the rise. Employers are also upping salaries to try to convince candidates who seem less reluctant to move from secure jobs.
And it is not only salaries that are on rise. Job vacancies in September also saw an increase, jumping 10.4% when comparing year-on-year stats.
