General market growth drives demand for finance experts


General market growth and new market entrants, particularly in e-commerce, are set to drive employment opportunities for finance and accounting professionals with strong commercial acumen.

This was among the key findings of our latest Salary Survey 2017

The report added that the rise in demand for professionals with strong technical skills is also due to multinational companies increasingly focusing on implementing efficient processes and controls to increase the accuracy of reporting.

As companies expand across Indonesia, bilingual skills will also remain essential in order to establish strong working relationships and communication with regional partners.

We expect to see a continuation of talent shortages at all levels throughout 2017.

As a result, professionals will expect 20 - 30% pay increases when moving between companies.
