Qualified bookkeepers are very much in demand and there are a huge number of job opportunities available across the profession, according to the Hays Salary and Recruitment Trends Survey 2020.

Not everyone, however, is satisfied with their salary, and pay transparency was revealed to be a top issue for staff in bookkeeping roles. Employers in the sector are being urged to focus on establishing clear promotion and pay structures and undertake regular pay reviews.

The typical salary in London for bookkeepers is currently £32,000. Meanwhile, typical salaries being paid in Northern Ireland are £26,000, and in Scotland, they are £25,000, says Hays.
