What’s The Word On The Street?

As specialist accounting and finance recruiters, our team spends a lot of time talking to accounting and finance types.

And I mean a LOT. Shooting the breeze with New Zealand’s top accounting talent (and the people who hire them) is like manna from heaven for these guys. Possibly the only thing that makes them happier is turning up to work and remembering it’s the boss’s turn to do the coffee run. 

So we reckon we have a pretty good anecdotal feel for what the people on the ground think of Auckland’s accounting and finance job market. Sometimes, though, it’s good to get all official with it. 

Right now, we’re in the middle of putting together the Greatest Accounting And Finance Salary Guide New Zealand Has Ever Seen (hey, you’ve gotta back yourself, right?). We’ve got a huge stack of tasty stats gathered from the online salary comparison tool we built for NZ’s accounting professionals,, and we want to complement it with a word-on-the-street, up-to-the-minute snapshot of what you, Dear Reader, think of the job market.

We would be eternally grateful if you would let us know your thoughts in just three clicks, by following this link (alright, four clicks, if you count the link).

As a big thank you, we’ll put you in the draw to win a $100 voucher from Bird On A Wire, so you can shout your colleagues lunch and revel in being the most popular guy/gal in the office for a day. Or hog it all and eat delicious roast chicken every day for a week. We won’t judge. 

We’d love it if you’d forward this on to your friends and colleagues in accounting and finance, too – the more the merrier.

And if you’re a hiring manager keen to get the jump on the competition when it comes to attracting and retaining top talent, sign up now to get a copy of our salary report delivered right to your door this May.

Tell us what you think of the accounting and finance job market now.
