There is a wide range of skill shortages, especially amongst part qualified accountants in Public Practice and industry/commerce.
As well as a shortage of skilled permanent general accounts staff, such as accounts clerks and credit controllers, there is a corresponding shortage of temporary and contract staff (largely due to the increased demand for such short/medium term staff solutions).
Conversely there is a shortage of senior level vacancies in industry and commerce.
Private healthcare :
offered by many companies
50% last year.
All companies now need to offer a pension compliant with auto-enrollment.
Company cars are provided much more in relation to position (Director/Manager) rather than salary. Only 10% of newly qualified accountants get company cars. Private mileage is currently only being paid by 10% of employers. Cars are usually replaced by age not mileage, typically 80,000 or 3.5 years.
Car allowances instead of company cars are growing in particular -Allowances vary according to seniority. Typically from £3,000 to £8,000 per annum.
Car parking is perceived as a perk, especially for those working in cities or towns.
Salary still appears the most important reason for moving for a new job. Working conditions and prospects for promotion next and location last.
Placing a vacancy with us is simple.
