Firms across the world are finding it hard to appoint skilled finance professionals, new report has claimed.
In news that might be of interest to those looking for graduate jobs in the sector, the second annual Robert Half Global Financial Employment Monitor found that 56 per cent of finance and human resource managers have had trouble finding suitable candidates.
However, the situation is slightly different in the UK with 43 per cent of respondents reporting such problems, down on 53 per cent last year.
Phil Sheridan, managing director for Robert Half in the UK, said: "Accountancy is one of the top choices of profession for UK graduates and London one of the world's financial hubs, which is why there would appear to be less difficulty recruiting in the UK."
Yesterday, Recruiter reported that Sir Paul Judge, president of the Chartered Institute of Marketing, claimed that the globalisation means that those looking for graduate jobs will have to be more politically and culturally aware.
