Accounting Recruitment Agencies

Accounting is almost as old as money itself, and it is now one of the oldest job sectors that still flourishes to this day. However, it was not until fairly recently in the overall scheme of things, during the 1940s and then throughout the 1970s, that UK accounting standards were put in place.

The vast majority of employers and accounting recruitment agencies will require candidates to have qualifications from CIPFA, ICAS, ACCA, or other relevant professional associations which are recognised in the UK.

Salaries and Job Opportunities

The average salary for accounting and finance jobs across the UK is about £30,000 per year. New entrants in to the field of accounting receive a salary of about £20,000 although there are usually opportunities for rapid advancement given that they have the relevant qualifications and have gained enough experience in their current position. At the high end, salaries of £50,000 – £65,000 are possible.

The areas with the highest average salaries, and the most potential for career advancement, include London and cities in the South East region. For new entrants in to the field of accounting, more job opportunities may be found elsewhere, including cities such as Birmingham and Leeds.

Generally, the highest salaries are to be found through accounting recruitment agencies in the private sector covering areas such as corporate finance and managerial or executive positions. The lowest salaries are for entry-level positions and those in the public sector.

Pathways to Working in Accounting

Potential employees are recommended, if not required, to have a university degree as well as other relevant qualifications such as studies in accounting, money management, and even insurance. Past work experience in the field is also necessary in order to secure the best jobs and highest possible salary, but is not required for many junior positions or entry-level work.

Apart from university degrees and professional qualifications, it is also very important for potential employees to posses other skills and attributes such as a great attention to detail, being highly numerate, and having an analytical mind to sift through statistics and other data.

Accounting recruitment agencies can be a benefit to both employers and potential employees, as they bring a wealth of experience in recognising and hiring candidates with the relevant skills for any given job, as well as the ability to put this experience in to practice quickly and efficiently.
