More than two million professionals work in accountancy, banking and insurance in the UK and the sector plays a major role in the economy. From bookkeepers and credit controllers to CAs and CFOs, there are many different roles for which you might be recruiting. It’s a world of acronyms, whether in its governing institutions, such as CIPFA, CIMA, ACCA, ICAS, CIOT or ICAEW - or job titles such as CFO, FD, CTA and CA. There is the ‘Big 4’ of PwC, Deloitte, KPMG and EY with their international reach and opportunities, but also many other very large companies at the level below this, and then below them thousands of accountancy firms, tax advisers and, of course, on the other side of the fence the government bodies such as HMRC.
The industry concentrates on gathering, analysing and making effective use of financial information for business, government and the wider public sector. It covers a range of job roles over and above the senior positions mentioned above, including qualified and part-qualified accountants, management accountants, tax advisers, payroll assistants, finance assistants and many others, all with different levels of qualifications, skillsets and experience.
The big recruitment agencies in this field have a similar international outlook to their clients, but there are also many local and national-level recruiters that are dedicated to dealing with accounting and finance professionals and which will provide you with an intellectually challenging and professionally satisfying career.
