SUM HEADS HUNTED.
IRELAND is suffering from a shortage of accountants - because so many have left for a new life in Australia.
Australia has often targeted young skilled Irish people to help it fill short-ages in its workforce - and many newly qualified Irish accountants have been enticed to the land of Oz.
Now at least two firms of financial head-hunters are going down under to try to persuade young Irish accountants to swap their Bondi lifestyles for the IFSC. Louise Campbell, of financial head-hunting firm Robert Walters, said: "Just about every Irish accountant goes to Australia for experience.
"We want to show that there are ample opportunities in the Irish market at the moment."
Recruiting specialist Greg O'Hanlon has, however, warned: "People won't return to Ireland without a firm job offer, which is difficult to get without some face-to-face interviews."
