Why The Job Market In Aberdeen Has So Many Career Opportunities For Accountants Right Now.
March 6, 2020
– I’m Laura Ross, and I’ve been working in the TMM Accounts and Finance Recruitment Team for nearly a decade, and in all that time,
I’ve never experienced such a busy start to the year. In fact, that increase in demand is why I’m now actively recruiting for someone to join my team. Right now, there are opportunities for the breadth of my candidates, including those who are
qualified by experience, part qualified and qualified, and it doesn’t matter if
you are ACCA qualified, CIMA or ICAS. Roles that are notoriously hard to find are in demand just now, so we’ve got commercial analyst roles, economic analyst roles, as well. There’s also been a noticeable rise in corporate accountant positions, management accountant positions and roles for tax professionals. There’s many reasons for this, but the primary reasons are that there’s new companies
coming into Aberdeen, and they’re looking to
tap into the local talent, established businesses are
adding financial acumen as part of wider business growth, and also with IR35 legislation, that is meaning that roles
that were traditionally filled by limited company contractors are now being recruited for
on a staff or PAYE basis. So, if you’re a job seeker right now and considering your options, even though the market is really busy, it’s still tough to stand out. You also need to make sure that you’re not pricing yourself out of a job offer. If you want to review the
