Accountants' salaries rise but benefits and training a problem
Despite gloomy economic forecasts, recent surveys show that accounting professionals saw increased pay in 2007. A report from professional recruitment firm Badenoch and Clark shows the national average increase to be 3.6%, with the majority of managers and employees alike agreeing this was in line with the market rate. However, benefit packages and training and development remain areas of concern.
Reed Accountancy polled over 1000 qualifieds and part-qualifieds, and found that 52% were unhappy with the benefit packages their firm offered.
