Demand up outside capital
01 May 2018
Career opportunities for accountants outside London have increased by a whopping 27% between February 2016 and February 2018, as businesses increasingly look to relocate or expand outside of the capital.
Market analysis by Global Accounting Network found that while the majority of companies choose to retain a presence in the capital many back-office functions like accountancy are moving ‘further afield’.
Global’s Adrian O’Connor pointed to the fact that HSBC has now moved its HQ for retail and commercial to Birmingham, and AstraZeneca relocated its global headquarters to Cambridge.
He said: “This is great news for finance professionals, who are seeking greater scope to step into a high-quality senior role closer to home, without compromising on the career opportunities and benefits that typically come with working for a large high-profile employer.”
