Lee Biggins, founder and CEO of CV-Library comments: “As key skills across the finance sector become more in demand, it’s clear that organisations are pushing up pay in a bid to entice people out of their current roles and this a trend we’re noticing across the board.”

What’s more, the job board found that pay in the industry had jumped up by 2.8% year-on-year, suggesting that employers are pulling out all the stops to try and overcome ongoing skills shortages.

Biggins continues: “The finance sector is heavily reliant on highly skilled individuals to help drive organisations forward and ensure they remain on track as a business. We know that there is particular demand within this industry, putting the power in the employees’ hands to search and apply for new roles, with higher pay.”
