Who else wants to be a contractor accountant?

Ambition, the international finance and accounting recruiter, believes that contractor accountants and finance staff working in the public sector will be badly hit by cuts in public spending.

There are currently around 140,000 permanent employees, freelancers and contractors in the public sector and Ambition predicts that around 11.5% will lose their jobs and many of those will be unable to find work in the private sector.

In total, it is thought that as many as three quarters of a million jobs will be lost in the coalition’s bid to reduce public spending by £6.2bn this year.

The MD of Ambition in the UK, Tim Gilbert, pointed out that the majority of public sector finance professionals do not have the cut and thrust attitude required by the banks and City financial institutions. Those candidates with commercial acumen will be quickly snapped up but many will fall by the wayside.
