The North West 2018 Market Insight Report covers the following areas (click to view salaries):
Executive & Interim
2017 was an extremely busy year in the executive and interim space in the North West. Specialist knowledge and experience were sought after and we noted an increase in demand for change, transformation and commercial roles across all sectors.
Commerce & Industry
Last year was a very positive year for job opportunities in the North West. We saw an increase in job flow and activity remained high throughout the year, with this year showing no sign of a slowdown. While this is extremely positive and bodes well for the economic prospects in the North West, it inevitably results in a candidate shortage and inflation in salaries and benefits.
The practice market in the North West remains strong this year with the majority of firms hiring across all levels. While salaries and benefits are consistently on the up, candidates are finding themselves with multiple options and are in the driving seat, particularly at qualified level and above. There is high demand for qualified audit and tax seniors and with this brings increases to salaries and bonus incentives to attract quality professionals.

Content TypeCareer Advice
Most talented professionals that are working hard to move up the corporate ladder, aspiring to be the financial leaders of the future, face the same concerns: To progress, you need to accelerate your learning by continually taking on new challenges that you haven’t faced before. However, as you take on new and daunting challenges, the obvious self-doubt can set in, such as: Where do I begin? Can I really do this? What are the potential watch outs? How can I make a real success of this? ABF Grocery Finance believe that having a robust mentoring programme allows mentees to ask these questions in confidence with someone completely independent of the business, allowing them to accelerate their learning and face new challenges confidently. It’s like having your own personal advisor. So how does it work in practice? At our organisation, all aspiring finance leaders of the future are allocated a mentor. The mentor will be a seasoned finance professional, often a finance director in one of our businesses, who is allocated to a mentee dependent upon the skills and capabilities the mentee requires. The mentee drives the frequency of the meeting and agenda allowing him or her to discuss work related issues and explore challenges to problems ‘off the record’. The mentor can ether share experiences or, via questioning - get to a solution. Ultimately, mentoring helps to nurture talented professionals by giving them the opportunity to tap into a wealth of learnt experience. The benefits The benefits of mentoring are not all one-sided. Being a mentor is highly rewarding; you are doing something that really matters and makes a difference to someone else’s career. It is great to connect with talented individuals and see them grow. More often than not, you also find yourself learning from the mentee! If you would like to learn more about ABF and our career opportunities, please visit the microsite here.
