31 Dec 08

The finance industry is in danger of a skills shortage over the next five years if it does not continue to attract and retain the next generation of accountants, according to the financial recruitment company, Robert Half

Phil Sheridan, UK managing director of Half, said: “As the impact of the global economic crisis continues, the profession must look beyond the downturn and continue to focus on attracting and retaining the next wave of finance and accounting professionals.”

He said the industry needs to rebrand itself to become more attractive to today’s young people.
