The Brook Street Finance Jobs Report:
Hiring and Retaining Finance and Accounting Talent in a Tough Labour Market

Share this page:

In one of the toughest hiring markets since records began, UK businesses must rethink their total employer offer to attract and retain top finance talent.

Challenges within the UK economy, and external problems, such as the war in Ukraine, are leaving businesses needing more finance and accounting talent to support stability. A recent Gartner survey revealed that demand for Financial Managers, Financial Analysts, Compliance Officers, Finance Systems Developers, and a host of other financial skills will be high throughout 2023.

However, even those businesses who can afford to pay above-market salaries are having difficulty securing and retaining the talent they need. Why is this? It’s because the world of work has changed. Workers no longer simply wish to survive at work, they want to thrive.
