A global talent shortage in accounting and finance continues to affect employers, according to a recent survey.

The survey, from Robert Half, found that 56% of global respondents found it difficult to source suitable candidates. The only country to experience less difficulty was the UK, with 43% reporting difficulties, compared to 53% last year.

Phil Sheridan said: “Accountancy is one of the top choices of profession for UK graduates and London is one of the world’s financial hubs, which is why there would appear to be less difficulty recruiting in the UK.”
