Welcome to your quarterly update on the Commerce & Industry market, where we provide you with insights from the previous and upcoming quarters.

What were the market trends for last quarter?
With June 30th Financial year end concluding, we noticed an increase in demand for statutory & technical accounting experience with a desire to lead finance transformation.

What are the major skills in demand?

  • Finance transformation, leading various teams through periods of change
  • Strong commercial analysis experience with an acute ability to use different systems to drive commercial outcomes
  • Strong finance business partners, who are capable of finding solutions which suit non finance stakeholders whilst analysing things through a finance lense

What are the skill gap shortages?

  • Candidates with various data visualisation skills such as Tableau and Qlickview to optimise business decision making.

What is the outlook for the next quarter?
Across almost all industries, companies will continue to focus their attention on introducing tools to provide automated & visual reports with an emphasis on driving effective business outcomes. Industries such as Healthcare, Property & Construction will likely continue to prosper whilst Retail looks to enhance the customer end to end experience.
