This would undoubtedly have apositive knock-on effect for the export-reliant Irish economy.A European-wide piece of legislation, the Agency Workers Directive (AWD), couldhave a big impact for the recruitment industry in Ireland in 2012. This is very muchdependent on how it is legislated for by the Dáil. There is every possibility that itcould lead to a decrease in demand for temporary workers to be replaced by anincrease in the number of permanent roles created causing a squeeze upwards inpermanent salaries. Further, this increase may not equal the amount of temporaryroles which potentially might be lost, possibly resulting in a reduction in the numberof people employed.4 | 2012 SALARY SURVEY

  6. 6. ACCOUNTANCY SALARY SURVEY Financial services2011 in Review Sector Dublin 2011 Dublin 2012 Regional 2011 Regional 2012We saw a slight increase in the volume of roles that we received from in the Accountancy Financial Executive E E E EServices market in 2011. We can point to our own internal numbers and say that specifically there was Finance Director 100K - 200K 100K - 200K 80K - 180K 80K - 180Ka 6% increase in the volume of roles that we received from our clients. Tax Director 100K - 160K 100K - 160K 80K - 130K 80K - 130KAll sectors within the Financial Services market reflected this improved volume of activity which Internal Audit Director 100K - 160K 100K - 160K 80K - 130K 80K - 130Kincludes Banking, Insurance and Funds. Overall, salaries and packages remained “steady” with only Financial Controller 65K - 95K 65K - 95K 55K - 85K 50K - 85Ksome marginal increases for “hard to fill positions”. Reporting Finance Manager 58K - 72K 58K - 72K 52K - 68K 52K - 68KCandidates that were in demand included Financial Reporting Accountants in Funds with good US and Product Accountant 58K - 65K 58K - 65K 52K - 60K 52K - 60KUK GAAP skills. Many clients were looking for candidates with exposure to Solvency II either within the Project Accountant 24K - 35K 28K - 35K 44K - 60K 44K - 60Kdomestic market or returning from overseas countries especially the UK. We also saw the continuing Systems Accountant 44K - 55K 44K - 55K 42K - 55K 42K - 55Ktrend in the market of more accountants moving into the areas of Compliance, Risk and Internal Audit.

There is still significant uncertainty in the financial markets internationally and this coupled Reg Accountant (5 +) 60K - 75K 60K - 75K 55K - 65K 55K - 65Kwith a challenging domestic financial services environment means that there is likely to be limited Reg Accountant (3 - 5) 50K - 60K 50K - 60K 45K - 55K 45K - 55Kopportunities in the Ireland.

  7. 7. ACCOUNTANCY SALARY SURVEY Industry & Commerce2011 in Review Sector Dublin 2011 Dublin 2012 Regional 2011 Regional 2012The 2011 Industry & Commerce Accountancy market very much reflected the overall improvement Executive E E E Eexperienced by the recruitment industry in Ireland. This meant that there was an upward curve for the Finance Director 100K - 200K 100K - 200K 80K - 180K 80K - 180Knumber of positions registered by clients with ourselves. In total the Industry & Commerce Accountancy Head of Tax 100K - 150K 100K - 150K 80K - 130K 80K - 130Kmarket was up by as much as 12% on 2010 levels and peaked in September 2011. Head of Internal Audit 90K - 140K 90K - 150K 80K - 130K 80K - 130KTo the surprise of many clients, certain key accountancy skill sets were still very difficult to find in the Financial Controller 65K - 95K 65K - 95K 55K - 85K 50K - 85Kmarket, one of those being Internal Audit. We found that there appeared to be a shortage of recently Reportingqualified accountants in the market coming from practice and industry. This could be down to the FP & A Manager 62K - 82K 62K - 82K 55K - 70K 55K - 70Kincreased volume of roles in the market and the heightened competition from clients for quality qualified Finance Manager 58K - 72K 58K - 72K 52K - 68K 52K - 68Kcandidates. Project Accountant 50K - 65K 50K - 65K 44K - 60K 44K - 60K Group Accountant 45K - 58K 45K - 55K 42K - 55K 42K - 55KSectors that continued to show strong growth included the FMCG, Pharmaceutical and Hi-Tec Systems Accountant 44K - 55K 44K - 55K 42K - 55K 42K - 55Kindustries. Given that the export sector remained very strong for much of 2011 it was no surprise thata large proportion of our clients that were hiring were multinationals and Irish Plc’s. A welcome trend Financial Accountant 42K - 48K 42K - 48K 38K - 46K 38K - 46Kin the market was that a significant portion of our clients reinstated bonuses. One final trend is that we Management Accountant 40K - 46K 40K - 46K 40K - 46K 40K - 46Knoticed more clients coming to us to help them fill mid and junior level finance positions. Internal Audit Internal Audit Manager 58K - 75K 58K - 75K 55K - 62K 55K - 62KExpectations for 2012 Internal Auditor 42K - 50K 42K - 50K 38K - 46K 38K - 46KThe sentiment for most clients is one of cautious optimism. There is a sense that the “worst is over” Part Qualifiedfrom a market perspective. That said the uncertainty over the Eurozone crisis remains very unhelpful.

It is likely that the demand for recently qualified accountants Accounts Stafffrom industry will remain high. This will mean that the competition to attract and retain the best young Payroll Manager 40K - 65K 40K - 65K 35K - 60K 35K - 60Kaccountants will again prove difficult for clients.

  8. 8. ACCOUNTANCY SALARY SURVEY Public Practice2011 in Review Sector Dublin 2011 Dublin 2012 Regional 2011 Regional 20122011 was a buoyant year in the practice market. The increase in recruitment, particularly by large firms, Public Practice E E E Ewhich started in the latter half of 2010 continued right throughout 2011. It was encouraging to note Partner 150K - 250K 150K - 250K 100K - 250K 100K - 250Kthat larger firms were recruiting across all areas including audit, restructuring, consulting and corporate Director 80K - 130K 80K - 120K 70K - 120K 70K - 120Kfinance. Another positive for the sector was that more medium sized firms actively began to engage inthe market.

This has recently startedto have an upward pressure on salaries/packages. Small/medium sized firms now often have to offerhigher basic salaries than previously to attract candidates and bonus payments are making a comeback with larger firms albeit not yet at the same levels of a few years ago.Expectations for 2012After a year and a half of consolidation and growth in the practice market, 2012 is set up to be anotheractive period. The main pressure will again be for audit and consultancy staff. We expect furtherincreases in hires by small & medium sized firms with larger firms continuing to hire aggressively. Unlessthere is a dampening effect from the current Eurozone crisis, 2012 will be a tough market for employersto recruit candidates and the recent upward pressure on salaries may intensify.About Abrivia AccountancyRoss Wynne is the Business Manager for Abrivia’s specialist Practice and Tax division.

Employment growth in the domestic Senior Equity Analyst 65K - 80K 65K - 82K 60K - 75K 60K - 75KBanking and financial services sector was however still very much subdued, mirroring 2009 and Credit Manager 50K - 75K 50K - 75K 45K - 75K 45K - 75K2010. There was a greater focus on new business however, with several institutions creating specific Lending Manager 48K - 65K 45K - 65K 48K - 65K 48K - 65K“enterprise” units with a view to long term recovery.

As a result of this there is Mortgage Administrator 22K - 28K 22K - 30K 22K - 28K 22K - 28Ka degree of uncertainty both regarding remuneration and projected employment figures for 2012. We Customer Service 23K - 30K 24K - 31K 23K - 28K 23K - 28Kexpect that in key areas remuneration may become a greater issue this year with employers focusing Treasurymore on quality over cost. The knock on effect of increased recruitment activity in 2011 and the latterhalf of 2010 also means that certain candidate profiles have become more difficult to source, and as Head of Treasury 70K - 95K 75K - 110K 70K - 95K 70K - 95Kmore financial entities begin to hire again this year the competition for top talent is likely to increase.

Across almost every level and industry, Compliance Manager 62K - 75K 67K - 82K 56K - 74K 56K - 74Kremuneration and benchmarking is being more closely examined with salaries for individuals in key Compliance Officer 44K - 67K 58K - 70K 40K - 53K 40K - 53Kpositions seeing a definite increase. At more senior levels within professional services, strong regulatory AML Specialist 38K - 60K 42K - 63K 30K - 49K 30K - 49K/ enforcement / risk advisory candidates are being offered greater flexibility in terms of packages Risk(basic salary, car allowance, bonus etc.,). Similarly, within Industry - there is a greater focus on the Chief Risk Officer 122K - 170K 135K - 170K 80K - 140K 80K - 140Kwider business impact that highly experienced compliance professionals can offer, and as a result Senior Risk manager 84K - 105K 90K - 110K 60K - 90K 60K - 90Kthere is more of an emphasis on obtaining the best person as opposed to strictly staying within salary Risk Manager (5 - 6 Years) 70K - 80K 70K - 85K 50K - 70K 50K - 70Kguidelines.

Risk Underwriter 35K - 50K 35K - 55K 28K - 45K 28K - 45KExpectations for 2012While there is some argument that Compliance and Risk recruitment will peak in 2012 as a result ofnew codes and regulations towards the end of 2011, the indication from clients and professionals isthat the long term health of the industry is good. Whilst there may be some levelling off in the overalllevel of recruitment - we envisage a consistent and healthy base level of recruitment to continue wellinto next year. An issue we expect to become more prevalent in 2012 surrounds basic qualification andcompetency for compliance professionals. A greater focus on academic criteria and overall fitness willlikely impact the selection process and in some instances the requirement for pre-approval is likely tobe a difficult hurdle to overcome. Overall we expect a busy 2012 with similar or greater numbers of newroles created as against 2011. In line with this, we expect the selection process to be more difficult tonavigate for candidates.About Abrivia Compliance & RiskAbrivia Legal, Compliance & Risk is managed by Robert Connolly LLB.

We also noticed an improvement in overall market confidence which led to the availability of more HR Business Partner 50K - 70K 55K - 70K 50K - 65K 50K - 65KHR roles on a permanent basis, as opposed to fixed term contracts, and in turn some more natural movement HR Generalist 40K - 55K 45K - 55K 40K - 50K 40K - 50Kof permanently employed HR professionals moving to other permanent roles for career progression. A HR Officer 30K - 38K 30K - 40K 30K - 35K 30K - 38Ksignificant HR skill in demand in 2011 was Compensation & Benefits/Reward with a number of senior level HR Admin 22K - 27K 23K - 28K 22K - 26K 22K - 27Kprofessionals in this field moving to take on new roles.

Whilst the volume of new roles is at a three year high, redundancies Operations Manager 80K - 115K 80K - 115K 75K - 110K 80K - 115Kand salary reductions still remain prevalent. On a more positive note, the insurance recruitment industry Senior Underwriter 50K - 68K 50K - 70K 48K - 65K 48K - 68Khas seen a healthy growth in 2011. Whilst the industry has a long way to go to reach the heights of 2007,I feel it is also important to note that more technical roles have seen a notable increase in recruitment and Underwriting Manager 50K - 60K 50K - 65K 48K - 55K 48K - 60Kremuneration.

This in turn has lead to companies having to increase their salaries in order to Acc Handler 28K - 40K 28K - 40K 24K - 35K 24K - 35Ksecure the services of suitable candidates. Apart from the more technical roles the insurance industry for Acc Executive 35K - 50K 35K - 50K 28K - 45K 28K - 45K2011 has remained relatively stagnant in terms of salaries, but on a more promising note the personal line Personal Line Broker 34K - 54K 35K - 55K 30K - 50K 30K - 50Kbrokers and insurance sales roles have occupied a large portion of our successfully placed candidates Corporate Broker 30K - 55K 30K - 55K 28K - 45K 28K - 45Kthis year.

The industry’s strengths also highlighted some Software Development Manager 75K - 120K 80K - 130K 70K - 110K 75K - 120Kof its current weaknesses; the most pronounced being the lack of skilled candidates available to takeup many new roles created in 2011.

Reflecting on the year gone by, things have improved Trainee Salaries 24K - 36K 26K - 38K 23K - 27K 23K - 27Kfaster than we predicted this time last year, both in terms of the number of solicitors for whom we found Legal Executive 24K - 35K 28K - 35K 23K - 30K 23K - 30Kroles, the experience levels sought and the remuneration companies in some circumstances were Co Sec Manager 50K - 80K 50K - 80K 35K - 55K 35K - 55Kprepared to offer. In light of this trend– we are setting higher expectations for 2012. Co Sec 3+ 35K - 45K 35K - 45K 27K - 35K 27K - 35KExpectations for 2012 NQ Co Sec 28K - 32K 28K - 35K 23K - 28K 23K - 28KThe larger corporate firms showed that the re-bound towards the end of 2010 was not to be short lived and Trainee Co Sec 24K - 28K 25K - 28K 23K - 25K 23K - 25Kwhile things remain tight, optimism is far higher, with a greater percentage of firms in the top 30 indicating Industrythat they would make growth hires next year. A number of our clients have engaged with us this year with Head of Legal 90K - 155K 90K - 167K 80K - 135K 80K - 140Krespect to salary benchmarking queries and this may indicate that greater emphasis is being placed on General Counsel 78K - 115K 75K - 128K 65K - 95K 60K - 95Kreward as firms compete for lawyers with impressive billing records. From an in-house perspective – 2012 Senior Legal Advisor 60K - 90K 60K - 90K 56K - 74K 56K - 74Kshould be an interesting year as more solicitors cross specialise in the areas of compliance and regulatory Junior Legal Advisor 40K - 65K 45K - 72K 35K - 50K 35K - 50Klaw. We expect that a greater number of solicitors will move in-house under the title of compliance in 2012 Company Secretary 70K - 98K 70K - 96K 30K - 49K 30K - 49Kthan previously, but the possible levelling off we have seen in the number of “due diligence / security review”positions may mean that numbers do not change dramatically across the market.

This was notable within large organisations in the Insurance, Executive Assistant 35K - 55K 35K - 55K 33K - 35K 33K - 35KFinancial and Banking industries, as the practice of taking in temporary staff to cover holidays and long Personal Assistant 30K - 50K 30K - 50K 33K - 35K 33K - 35Kterm sick leave returned to the market place.
