03 SOUTH COAST
2013 has seen an increase in Accountancy and Finance roles across the South Coast region with the Southampton area leading the way but equally Portsmouth and Bournemouth areas have also
positive improvements from last year’s recruitment levels.
The Financial Services, Retail and Technology sectors were the most active but traditional sectors like Manufacturing and Defence also showed an uplift from 2012. As the economy and business confi dence grew through 2013, the SMEs delivered a consistent number of jobs from Ledger Clerks to Financial Controllers, whilst the larger companies and major
corporates took on more qualifi ed and part qualifi ed staff to replace leavers over the last 24 months and to work on new projects.
Even though demand for staff was up salaries remained relatively static
across all levels
except within the late stage part qualifi ed and newly qualifi ed where companies had to pay a premium to incentivise good candidates to make the move.
The fi nancial recruitment outlook across the South Coast for next year is positive with a large number of our clients expecting to hire within their fi nance teams at some point in 2014.
The salary information below represents the minimum and maximum salaries we would expect to see for the listed job titles within the geographic region. The fl uctuations are predominantly based on the size and sector of the organisation. We have not included non salary related benefi ts in the survey.
