Accounting and Finance sector in best shape since pre-recession

Accounting and Finance sector in best shape since pre-recession
The first quarter of 2015 has shown that many of the big accounting and finance teams are back in growth mode, reinvigorating their annual hiring plans with gusto.

The War for Talent is back as confidence returns firmly to the legal sector
2015 sees confidence firmly return to the legal community and an appetite for growth has led to a sharp increase in permanent and interim recruitment across the UK. Real Estate in particular continues to see the greatest demand for lawyers at all levels which in turn has created additional openings and opportunities in associated disciplines of planning, housing and construction. As the wider UK economic recovery gathers pace, other core practice areas such as Corporate, Banking, Commercial, IP/IT and Litigation remain buoyant with firms ensuring they go over and above on pay and benefits to attract and retain the best talent. Our latest research Talent Trends, shows that over 50% of legal professionals rate stronger benefits as essential in their next career move, and are ready to pounce for the right opportunity with 45% updating their LinkedIn profile and 44% updated their CV.
