Great Response at Second Aberdeen Accountancy & Finance Exchange
There was a great response from the second Eden Scott Accountancy & Finance Exchange on the 21 February 2014. An insightful seminar discussed all things commercial accountancy and why accountants with commercial nous are in growing demand across North East employers.
The event was held at Amicus Apple and was attended by Aberdeen based accountancy professionals.
“Accountants are the pioneers of change” commented Paul Buchan, a respected commercial accountancy consultant at Eden Scott. Contrary to belief, the accountancy profession is dextrous and agile to market fluctuations, such as economic recessions.
When the chips are down, accountants come out fighting, creating ingenious methods to achieve business goals during a downturn. Economic developments have changed the way accountants work, focusing more on business performance and using creative solutions to engender growth in a safe and sustainable manner.
How does commercial accountancy influence the Aberdeen market?
Commercial accountants have the courage, talent and determination to affect change, and more and more employers in the North East are looking for accountants that are capable of agile thinking.
Andrew Ferguson, Director of Eden Scott, highlighted the shift in Aberdeen, across industry and practice employers.
“Aberdeen based professional services businesses are in high demand for commercially and operational driven accountants. The types of roles available vary, however the team at Eden Scott have noticed the rise of the Business Analyst in Exploration and Production (E&P) companies and Financial Analyst in service companies over the last 3 years, growing in prominence in 2013.”
The market for accountancy and finance professionals in Aberdeen is likely to amplify in 2014, with companies preparing to increase both permanent and temporary roles throughout the year.
