Accounting and Finance

Get a detailed overview of the local accounting and finance sector, including hiring trends and areas of job promise. Below is a brief excerpt from this section:

Overview

After the difficult years that followed the 2008 economic crisis, which destabilized the country’s financial services and banking sector severely, these areas registered constant improvements, thanks to the reactivation of commerce and new credit lines available to individuals and SMEs, as well as the arrival of more foreign investments. However, as the COVID-19 outbreak disrupted most companies’ activities, this sector is experiencing drastic changes. Madrid and Barcelona normally offer the largest number of opportunities in this sector.  

Employment Outlook

Prior to the beginning of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, the Spanish banking sector was in a transitional period. Traditional banks were focusing on changing their business formats, and looking at improving their digital and personalized client services. At the same time, more companies were demanding accounting and finance professionals who could improve their business development.

It can be expected that, while many companies will have to freeze their business activities due to the impact of the public health crisis, some firms might request new accounting and finance experts who can navigate the new budgetary restrictions and the evolving fiscal measures that governments are shaping to protect the local economy.
