Strong increase in demand for finance professionals


There has been a strong increase in demand for finance professionals this year. In the first quarter of the year, the number of vacancies for highly-trained finance staff rose by 32% compared with the same period last year. That’s the conclusion of recruitment consultancy Robert Walters based on an analysis of vacancies advertised in Belgium. There was a clear rise in demand for accounting managers, analysts, controllers and investment specialists in particular.

Finance professionals such as accounting managers, controllers, (risk) analysts and treasury experts who play an important role in the company’s growth strategy and have strong business acumen are therefore much sought after. As the annual salary survey revealed, these professionals can therefore often count on a salary increase when they switch to a new job.

Robert Walters has based this analysis on figures from Jobfeed, which measures vacancy volumes in Belgium.
