Accountancy & Finance in Scotland spans across every industry and business size and ranges from transactional positions such as credit control and payroll through to Executive level positions such as Finance Director. The sector provides considerable career development and allows individuals to gain one of a range of professional qualifications such as ACCA, CIMA, ACA, and AAT, with many post qualified individuals moving onto more commercial and industry specific qualifications such as MBA and CFA to help career development across commerce.
Many recruitment firms will tend to divide the Accountancy sector into the four areas of Financial Services, Commerce & Industry, Public Sector and Public Practise, with the latter including well known companies such as KPMG, PWC, Deloitte and Ernst & Young, along with many lesser well known mid and smaller sized companies.
There is a continual demand for non, part and post qualified Accountancy talent across a range of job types, with may recruiters carving a specialist area of focus:
- Management Accounts
- Financial Accounts
- Risk & Compliance
- Financial Director and/or Manager
- Corporate Finance & Insolvency
- Transaction services (Credit Control, Payroll, Purchase Ledger)
