The 2013 Hays Salary Guide: Salary & Recruiting Trends

STABILITY
RETURNS

As the dust starts to settle on the shifting picture for WA and


QLD, forecasts point towards a more stable economic climate
with increased condence; 68% of respondents say they envisage
business activity increasing in the coming months and record low
interest rates will only support that.
While it is clear that there is now sustained demand, much of it
in the more traditional disciplines such as Accountancy &
Finance, IT and Sales & Marketing its not in every function, in
every region. Our clients are making strategic hires into roles that
will offer long term benefits for the organisation be they
permanent or short term.
The qualities of the most valued candidates are consistent
though, with capability, culture fit and specific relevance to the
job at the top of many shortlists. The keys to attracting those
high potential candidates still lies with finding them, engaging
with them and making sure that they see the right opportunities
at the right time.

MARKET OVERVIEW & TRENDS

4 | 2013 Hays Salary Guide

Employers are cautiously optimistic about the year


ahead. Last year, only 27% saw the outlook for the
economy as strengthening. In comparison, this
year 40% say they see a more positive outlook on
the horizon.
When asked about the 12 months ahead, an encouraging
68% of employers expected their levels of business activity
to increase. And 55% had already seen an increase in
business activity over the 12 months prior to the survey.
Of the total employer group, 8% had no plans to increase
salaries in the 12 months after the survey and 11% had
not awarded any increases in the preceding 12 months.
Continuing to look at theses two time periods, 57% of
employers plan salary increases of less than 3% (49% had
awarded such increases in 2012); 32% increases of 3% to
6% (33% in 2012) and 2% increases of 6% to 10% (5% in
2012). Only 1% of employers planned salary increases of
more than 10% compared to 2% in 2012.
When asked about permanent headcount over the next
12 months, 37% of those surveyed expected headcount to
increase, 51% for staff levels to stay the same and 12% for
numbers to decrease. Reecting on the past 12 months,
35% of employers had increased permanent headcount,
42% kept it on hold and 23% decreased numbers.
Of those employers planning to hire, 83% say the roles
will be full-time (down from 85% in 2012), 20% plan more
part-time staff (18% in 2012), 14% more casual staff (15%
in 2012) and 17% will increase their use of temporary/
contracting staff (unchanged).
By sector, permanent headcount is expected to grow most
within Engineering and Project Management with 60%
and 49% respectively of employers predicting growth in
these areas. Hiring intentions in Accountancy & Finance are
consistent with the prior year at 26% planning to increase
hiring. A large 80% of employers plan to keep Marketing
headcount unchanged but of those employers surveyed
none were planning to decrease headcount.
Sales professionals are in demand but mostly for hunter
roles that will increase the revenues of the organisation
while demand for Account Management talent has
declined. Resources & Mining employers remain focused
on retention, a continuing trend from 2012.
The largest area of skills shortage appears to be junior
to mid management talent in both Operations and
Accountancy & Finance. The next highest areas of skills
shortage were for Junior to Mid Management talent for
Engineering, Technical roles, Sales & Marketing and IT roles.
As an indicator of the need to increase exibility in the
workforce weve seen a 25% increase in the number of
respondents expecting to utilize temporary and contract
staff on an ongoing basis. In terms of skills shortages, more
than 63% of those surveyed said that the effectiveness
of their operations would be impacted by not nding the
right skills for their business. Interestingly, career path and
development was identied as being critical to attracting
the best candidates by 41% of respondents, yet in contrast
only 10% say their organization is perceived as offering
those opportunities by the market. Similarly, in order
to cope with skills shortages, 61% of employers would
consider sponsoring candidates from overseas compared
to 59% in 2012.

ACCOUNTANCY & FINANCE

AUSTRALIA

SALARY INFORMATION: ACCOUNTANCY & FINANCE

Buoyant industries for accountancy and


finance hiring in 2013 include the online
retail, energy, oil & gas, property,
distribution and the Fast Moving Consumer
Goods (FMCG) sectors. Candidates working
within these areas have been in strong
demand and were usually able to command
higher salaries this year. We have seen an
increased demand for candidates in the
operational risk and audit areas as well as
technology and finance. Candidates with
strong financial modelling and IT skills were
highly sought by employers who looked to
them to help drive improved corporate
governance and business efficiencies within
their organisations.
At the accounting support level, there was a
high volume of candidates in the market
targeting the more transactional accounting
roles and this demand kept salaries fairly
flat. For specific roles such as credit control
and payroll the opposite was true. The high
demand for candidates from employers gave
these candidates the leverage they needed
to command higher salaries particularly
those with specific systems experience.
Overall, the accounting profession
continues to be a candidate short and job
rich market, making it a challenge for
clients to recruit. Those with smooth and
efficient recruitment processes and a
willingness to remain competitive on
salary are securing the top talent. CA firms
with a strong work-life balance and who
are prepared to offer flexible working
arrangements are also ahead of the pack.
There is still ongoing demand for tax and
insolvency professionals in larger firms while
smaller firms are seeking professionals with
experience in self-managed super funds.
We expect these areas of skill to continue to
be in demand. Audit professionals are also
in growing demand.
In terms of hiring trends we saw a significant
increase in the number of employers
demanding like for like industry and
technical expertise rather than looking at the
strengths and transferable experience of
each individual candidate and the value they
could bring. When times are uncertain,
employers will add steps to their recruitment
process to provide reassurance for their
hiring decisions. Candidates need to be
prepared for an extended selection process.

22 | 2013 Hays Salary Guide

For employers, moving fast and offering


more flexible selection criteria will increase
the likelihood of securing a quality candidate.
We are seeing signs of the candidate market
tightening, which means candidates will
become harder to find so the savvy employer
will need to be prepared to look outside their
own sector to secure quality staff.
Numerous large blue chip and listed
employers underwent restructures in 2012
that resulted in senior finance high
performers moving up the hierarchy into
more senior management roles. This
created a void at the newly qualified
through to four or five years post
qualification experience (PQE) level, in
turn increasing salaries for roles at senior
accountant and manager levels.
The reverse was true at the Senior Manager
level and above where the high supply of
candidates resulted in a stabilisation of
salaries with many candidates even willing to
take a pay cut for a good career opportunity.
This trend could create professionals hungry
for career advancement as soon as business
conditions within their organisation improve.
In the public sector there continues to be
high demand for qualified accountants with
specialised skill sets as government
departments seek to further improve
processes and create efficiencies. We are
seeing a big increase in the need for
Financial Analysts and Financial Modellers to
monitor spending and create more robust
financial models for future use. There is also
a looming shortage of CA/CPA qualified
Financial Accountants and Management
Accountants in the public sector as private
sector organisations are offering more
rewarding options and career advancement.

accounting functions, particularly at the


support level, continued into the year.
Many operations based in Christchurch
re-located corporate services functions
away from the city creating greater
candidate demand in other cities. Many
accountancy and finance professionals
from Christchurch opted to relocate or
gain overseas experience.
As the year progressed, the permanent
candidate market strengthened across a
number of skill sets including the demand
for Financial Analysts with experience in
business performance, financial modelling
and business case appraisals. Financial
Accountants with specific industry
experience, especially FMCG and support
services, were also in demand along with
Payroll Managers and specialists at all
levels. Those with end-to-end experience
and specific software experience were in a
particularly strong position to demand
higher salaries.
Accounts Payable and Accounts
Receivables workers with ERP experience,
high data entry speeds and accuracy
continue to be in demand. Quality
graduate-level Assistant Accountants with
a stable work history and studying for
their professional qualifications are also
sought, and BAS and Audit specialists
have been in short supply. Newly qualified
accountants leaving the country to gain
overseas experience also left gaps in the
professional practice and commercial
sectors. Chartered accountancy firms are
likely to increase their training capability
and review their attraction strategies to
cope with skills shortages.

NEW ZEALAND
The market for accountancy and finance
professionals remains robust in New
Zealand. Business confidence improved
during the year across all main centres, and
the lift in business activity and revenues led
to greater hiring activity for finance teams,
putting upward pressure on salaries.
Earlier in the year, employers in Auckland
and Wellington were containing headcount
and restructuring to drive greater
efficiencies thus increasing the demand for
temporary workers. This demand across
