Career Prospects Improving for Women in Finance and Accounting


A career in finance and accounting is a sound choice for aspiring female CEOs, according to new research from leading specialist recruitment consultancy Robert Half UK.

Almost two thirds (64%) of UK finance directors believe that there are more opportunities for women to move up the ranks in finance and accounting roles than 10 years ago, while 87% think women have a better chance of securing executive board positions as a result of those opportunities and 81% believe they have a better chance of moving into a chief executive role.

A report by the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) finds that the total proportion of female members and students in the accountancy profession remained broadly constant between 2010 and 2014 at around 50%.
