The 10 financial services jobs set for biggest 2018 pay rises

With a skills shortage in financial services, a study from recruitment firm Robert Half highlights 10 professions likely to see the biggest pay rises this year.

A study from recrutiment specialist Robert Half reveals which financial services (FS) professionals could experience the highest pay increases this year. 

Robert Half notes that 51% of FS executives are struggling to recruit due to a lack of experienced professionals on the market. A total of 59% say demand is growing faster than supply. 

'The skills shortage continues to be felt industry-wide and is a trend that is likely to continue into the foreseeable future. With finance automation, changing regulations and a driving need for greater efficiencies, firms are focused on attracting and holding onto top talent,' said Robert Half UK director Matt Weston. 

'In a bid to attract highly skilled professionals, many financial services firms plan to prioritise salary increases and bonus payments tied to performance over standard benefits this year.' 

Against this backdrop, Robert Half highlights the top 10 roles anticipated to see the biggest salary rises in 2018.
