Four in five accountancy firms have experienced skills shortages in the last 12 months

A survey of UK-based accountancy firms by recruitment agency, Hays, has found that 83 per cent of UK accountancy and finance firms have experienced skills shortages in the last 12 months.

This skills shortage has led to upward pressure on wages as firms compete for the best candidates. At the same time, it has also led to increased demand from candidates for work-life balance benefits such as home working and flexible working.
