6% Growth in Finance Roles


We are delighted to announce that there is a definite upward trajectory in the amount of roles in finance available in Scotland. This recognition supports the fact that Scotland remains the most important UK financial services centre outside of London and has a worldwide reputation for excellence.  Growing the economy is this government's top priority and the continued success of the financial services sector will be crucial in achieving that objective. Here's the good news broken down into some facts and figures:

  • Eden Scott has seen a 6% growth in new permanent roles
  • Placement fees boosted by almost 50% in the last year
  • 25% rise across UK in finance sector

Accountancy and Finance Senior Consultant Mike Leeman comments: “There is a definite growth in roles compared to last year. We have the uncertainty of the referendum behind us and a decision made on government for the next 5 years and so firms are now looking at how they can take advantage of the general economic growth. We are now finding not only the standard finance roles but also more strategic and commercial roles are being released by clients. Looking at statistics we have seen a growth of 6% in new permanent roles and placement fees have boosted by almost 50% compared to one year ago.”
