• Industries including real estate development, construction, property management and civil trades continue to see high demand for accounting professionals
  • Public practice accounting seeing increasing demand as talent shortage continues
  • Many employers hiring on contract-basis to fill talent gaps and keep projects moving forward
  • Flexibility remains a high priority for accounting professionals seeking a career move

Vancouver, BC, July 27, 2023 – Salary expectations remain high for accounting professionals in the real estate development, construction, property management and civil trades sectors as the need for talent across all accounting functions continues to be strong, particularly for project and property accountants. In public practice accounting, salaries continue to increase as the growing demand for talent persists, largely due to the ongoing talent exodus to industry-based roles.

For many employers prioritizing immediate or short-term staffing needs, independent contractors and consultants are proving to be a viable temporary solution to filling talent gaps. With demand for niche and highly specialized skill sets growing, contract-based employment opportunities are in no short supply.

Flexibility continues to be a priority for accounting and finance professionals entertaining a career move, as they prioritize work-life balance and actively seek out employers providing flexible work options. This trend is not unique to the accounting and finance sector – it’s become a common request for professionals across many industries over the last few years.
