What The Buck: Again?!

Every hiring manager we meet right now is desperate to know what’s happening in the accounting and finance market.

What roles are in hot demand, what are other organisations doing to retain their key staff and how can they ensure the best people are working for them? 

While we love getting out and catching up with our community of like minded organisations, we also want to leave them with a good reference guide to help them ponder their next hiring moves.

Last year we released What The Buck?! – the “finest and dandiest Finance & Accounting commentary guide ever released”*

Salary surveys are the in thing right now (in fact, they could be the grown up version of a fidget spinner) – so why do you ask are we spending time, energy, money etc to produce What The Buck?

Because we can provide the real data, in real time and it is relevant to you (and fun to read!).  Plus, we believe that it’s our job to keep you all in the loop – whether you are hiring right now or not.

While many other surveys lump accounting and finance along with marketing, IT, sales and other professions (dental assistants anyone?!) – What The Buck is only focused on what matters to us – Accounting and Finance roles.  We can deliver more insight to you because we are focused on one area.

A number of them also group Auckland with other New Zealand cities, or worse, with Australia (gah!). What The Buck?! is specifically for Auckland accounting and finance professionals (although we were very impressed with one 428 page long survey this year!)

What matters is that you get specific, timely and comprehensive salary information to enable you to make the best decisions about your accounting and finance staff.  Because without the best people turning up each day – we are all in a bit of bother.

So; we’re stoked to bring you What The Buck: Again?!

For the sequel to What The Buck?! we left no stone unturned. We’ve amassed nearly 9,000 responses in What’s My Worth – a real-time, user-driven online salary comparison tool. What the Buck: Again?! has a large enough data set so you can be confident in its relevance and reliability. We’ve also added insightful commentary to the key happenings in the market right now, and how you can attract and retain the best accounting and finance people. 

What The Buck: Again?! is no normal salary guide. It addresses the important issues but in a fun and engaging way. While we jammed as much juicy goodness into its 28 pages, there’s a lot of other industry-specific info which our team will be happy to share with you. We’ve learnt from experience that you’ll get the most out of What The Buck over a coffee with your favourite consultant.

Get the down-low and the silver bullet needed to ensure your dream team is your reality. If you’re based in Auckland and you manage accounting and finance staff, this report is a must-have.

Happy reading.

Angela Cameron.

* I am quoting myself here!  But while other salary guides cured my insomnia – What The Buck delivers juicy goodness in a readable way.
