Auditing is the most desired finance career, according to a study by CMC Markets. The study, which analysed Google search data and Indeed job listings, found that the banking sector in particular is seeing a high number of searches.

‘Actuary’ is the second most searched term on the list, and it is the only insurance related career to make it to the top ten. There are currently 1,030 actuary jobs on Indeed, compared to 785 auditor positions.

In third place lies corporate banking, with 166,600 searches and 3,748 Indeed job listings. Searches for bank teller jobs numbered 43,250, but only 35 bank teller jobs are available on Indeed.

Forensic accounting and compliance officer roles saw a similar amount of interest, however there are 6,685 compliance officer roles in the UK as opposed to only 64 forensic accounting openings.

Michael Hewson, chief market analyst at CMC Markets explains the importance of tracking interest within the finance industry.

“Despite the scarcity of jobs in some industries, it seems that there is a noticeable interest within different sectors of the finance world.,” Hewson says, “It is interesting to see that a large proportion of this number is made up of searches related to the banking sector. As a whole, financial careers are being searched for 2,935,840 times per month on Google. This number is definitely something to keep an eye on as people may look to seek new opportunities in 2023.”
