Five changes we're seeing in the Accountancy & Finance Recruitment Market

There are lots of jobs out there at the moment in the Accountancy & Finance space, and here are five changes we’re seeing in the market.


We are seeing the biggest shift in salaries in the transactional market. What feels like overnight, candidates are now looking for a minimum salary of circa £25,000 for Purchase Ledger, Sales Ledger and Credit Control and Payroll positions.
This could be due to the cost of living increase and that companies are doing everything they can to retain their employees, which often includes salary increases.

Signing on Bonuses

Signing On Bonuses are being offered more and more frequently as a tool for Accountancy Firms to remain competitive on salary.

Taking too long to make a decision 

In the candidate short market, Candidates have more choices and are involved in multiple opportunities. However, employers are acting risk-averse and want to see multiple CVs before offering the position. By doing this, they are missing out on top talent by taking too long to make a decision.

What’s your D&I strategy? Candidates want to know

Candidates are factoring Employers’ commitment to Diversity & Inclusion as part of their decision-making process and even deciding if they want to participate in a process.

Hybrid is the way forward 

Candidates don’t want to work five days in the office, and they won’t, regardless of how good the opportunity is. As a result, employers that are not offering hybrid working are losing out on top talent.
