Your current employer may not be able to facilitate your career progression or salary expectations, so you may have to start looking for a higher paid role with someone new.

Salary survey

AAT recently produced a salary survey that shows the variation in salaries across the UK.

Accountancy Salaries 2018

Does age matter?

Yes, according to AAT. 16 to 18-year-olds can expect to earn £10,040, with 55-year-olds earning £29,829. This can also be said for bonuses, where younger trainees get an average bonus of £200 and more mature employees receiving £1,000.

Gender gap

Interestingly, AAT report only a small difference in pay between genders based on those surveyed. The survey does, however, show the picture that part-time salaries are at £20,451 for men, a thousand pounds more than women. The larger sized businesses are more likely to be offering higher salaries and larger bonus schemes too.

Stay or go?

22% of those surveyed were looking for a promotion, with only 12% planning on moving to a new role with a different employer.

Garry Howling, Managing Director, Public Practice Recruitment Ltd commented: “If 22% of staff are looking for a promotion with their own employer they may be waiting some time. Having worked in the accountancy field for many years, I know that not all accountancy firms have the same ethos or structure to facilitate internal promotion, with lean structures that are not top heavy. There are a lot of great roles waiting for those who want to progress their career.”
