SINGAPORE: Specialist recruitment firm Robert Half said the demand for skilled finance, accounting and banking professionals will remain strong in the last two quarters of 2012.
This, as Singapore’s chief financial officers and senior business leaders have expressed confidence in their organisation and Singapore’s prospects for the forthcoming year.
Robert Half’s Financial Employment Report is based on a survey of more than 300 of Singapore’s top business and finance leaders about their outlook for the second half of 2012.
In the banking and financial services sector, 90 per cent of firms plan to maintain or increase the number of permanent finance, accounting and banking staff on their books.
At the same time, 86 per cent of companies in other industry sectors plan to maintain or increase the number of permanent finance and accounting staff.
As a result, many are looking to hire or maintain the number of accounting and finance professionals they employ in order to meet growing demand.
