Accountants can ask their price, poll confirms

The latest accountant salary poll reveals part qualified accountants receive much higher salaries than they expect

Almost one-third of part qualified accountants are earning from £22,000 to £24,000 in their first job, compared with almost nine in 10 expecting to be offered less than £22,000, according to the latest poll by internet jobs board

Strong demand for accountancy candidates has put part qualified accountants in a powerful negotiating position – a majority of 61% was able to raise their original offer, compared with 29% who were not. Newly qualified accountants fared better – 67% of whom were able to get a better deal, against 29% who could not.

'The best accountancy candidates are in hot demand and many have more negotiating power than they think,' Richard Perrott, chief consultant, told ICAEW’s official publication Accountancy Magazine.

'Part-and newly qualified accountants with the right skill sets are capable of commanding much better packages than they realise.'
