Stable job market for accounting and finance experts


In 2017, we expect hiring managers to continue recruiting accounting and finance professionals in Singapore.

Hiring managers will value finance professionals with strong communication skills and stakeholder management capabilities who can assume key business partner roles.

This was among the key findings of our latest Salary Survey 2017

The report added candidates with proven experience in systems implementation and the ability to adapt to industry changes will also be highly sought after as companies seek to embed new structures in 2017.

In addition, roles in tax, transfer pricing, costing, consolidations, financial planning and analysis will be in demand.

However, these will be challenging to fill as candidate shortages in these areas persist. Due to the niche skill sets required for tax, treasury and internal audit roles, those looking to move jobs can expect higher salaries in 2017.
