Salaries on the rise
09 October 2018
Salaries for accounting roles across the UK saw a massive jump of 8.8% in September, when compared to 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 complied 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 to move from secure jobs.
And, its not only salaries that are on rise. Job vacancies in September also saw an increase jumping 10.4% when comparing year-on-year stats.
