In Autumn 2019, we asked over 3,000 Accountancy and Finance professionals to give us an insight into their working lives.
Our results showed that the GAAPweb audience is comprised of qualified, high calibre candidates, with 84% of respondents holding a degree and 53% currently in senior roles such as Finance Manager, Finance Director and CFO.
Although these senior job titles are dominated by men, the pay gap is closing year-on-year in positions including Finance Director (+4%) and Financial Controller (+3%). Whilst there is more positive representation for female finance professionals in junior positions, women still remain underrepresented and the gender pay gap now stands at 26%, which is 9% higher than the national average.
This year, we asked our audience whether they felt secure in their current position. Despite the climate of political and economic instability, our findings revealed that 63% of our audience do feel safe in their jobs. Could this represent a positive year for job security in finance?
