More finance contractors working in public sector
Those working in the accountancy and finance industry, may be interested to hear that the number of these contractors working in the public sector has grown considerably as of lately.
The survey, carried out by Giant Group, revealed that the number of accountancy and finance contractors working in this sector, has risen to 51%.
According to the report, this is a 12% increase since 2011 and a 5% rise since the start of the year.
Last year, 35% of accountancy and finance contractors predicted that the public sector would offer them more job opportunities, with these latest findings proving them right.
Of those finance professionals surveyed, 44% said that this is expected to increase further over the next 12 months.
Matthew Brown, Managing Director of Giant Group, said, “The findings of this survey are perhaps unsurprising given the expectations identified in our earlier report.
“However, it paints a positive image of a growing contractor opportunity, one which we expect to continue as new public sector developments bring about greater opportunities over the next few months.”
