Demand for accountants up 27% outside London

Career opportunities for qualified accounting professionals outside of London increased by 27% between February 2016 and February 2018, as businesses increasingly look to relocate or expand outside of the capital. That is according to market analysis from specialist recruiter, Global Accounting Network.

This data is reflected by separate research from the Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo) which found that vacancies for finance managers in the south of England increased by 19% year-on-year at the end of 2017.

This regional rise in finance roles within commerce and industry is also in line with the UK’s Industrial Strategy to ‘rebalance the UK’ by investing infrastructure to offer better connectivity across the South East, the Oxford-Cambridge corridor and the Northern and Midlands ‘Powerhouses’.
