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.
