From the yahoo groups for sonn-to-be coupel where I sued to be a member, I know a lot of Filipan accountants who works abroad. Most of them are either direct hired or have sought the help of an online job market like www.accountancyjobsabroad.com
. The web-based recruitment company Accountancy Jobs Abroad Limited commenced trading in October 2007 and has rapidly expanded its client base. The business has a clear focus on recruiting finance professionals, predominantly qualified accountants, to many desirable locations around the world. I haven't heard though of a Filipina accountant who is working in Cayman Islands. Here is the press release for the website I have just mentioned.
Accountancyjobsabroad.com is rapidly expanding its customer base and it has noted that the Cayman Islands is increasingly becoming the number one choice of destination for many of its candidates.
Adam Bendall, a co-Director, commented “Cayman has always had to battle with other locations such as Bermuda in order to fill the vast number of finance jobs which exist. Although there is still a high level of competition for the best candidates, Cayman seems to be gaining the upper hand. We are seeing increasing numbers of candidates selecting Cayman as their first choice destination”.
There are a number of possible reasons for this trend such as the probable impact of tougher work permit restrictions which are being proposed in Bermuda. Cayman is also helping to market itself by developing its businesses in key areas, as Mr. Bendall continues “Cayman has a thriving business sector which continues to gain in strength, particularly in the Managed Fund and Hedge Fund industry”.
In terms of what this means for Accountancyjobsabroad.com, the business is extremely positive. Mr. Bendall continues “Our web-based strategy enables us to adapt quickly to changes in the offshore job market. We are excited about the opportunities these situations present to our candidates and we look forward to matching their skill-sets to many of the fantastic jobs that are available in this exciting destination”.
