Helping you land your dream job

At ABPM we understand that many of our candidates may not have interviewed for many years as they may have been working in the same role, with the same company for a number of years. As part of our consultative work, we offer advice to all of our candidates on the presentation of their CV, ensuring that your CV stands out and is not the one left on the pile. We assist you on how to prepare for the interview, with what questions to ask and what to expect in return from your interviewee.

With the UK economy growing at the fastest rate since the credit crunch and ensuing recession, employers appear increasingly eager to build their finance teams. More than one in three (36 per cent) chief financial officers (CFOs) surveyed, were expecting to increase permanent finance headcount in the first six months of 2014 and another 55 per cent will be filling vacated roles.

When questioned about their motivation for hiring accountants, CFOs said rising workloads (71 per cent) was the key motivator. The desire to penetrate new markets (55 per cent) and expand the range of products and services available (38 per cent) were other common reasons for taking on – or intending to hire – new staff members. More than eight in 10 (83 per cent) CFOs said they are confident about growth prospects in the UK, up from the 70 per cent who expressed positivity this time last year. An even higher proportion – 86 per cent – are confident about their own organisation’s growth prospects in the current market, up from 84 per cent in 2013. The same positive attitude seems to be present heading in to 2015 and companies are preparing to increase the hiring of talented individuals for their accounts/finance team.
