Recently we have seen heightened demand across all sectors for part-qualified accountants for duties such as invoicing, data entry and basic month-end processes or, in some cases, for more senior roles such as Finance Manager or Controller. 

Typically, candidates will be working towards a professional accounting qualification and, once qualified, will progress to another opportunity. It’s therefore very important that employers actively plan for succession.
