CIMA students confident about their future

UK students from the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) said they are confident about their future job security and salary rises, according to the institute’s student salary survey.

Nine out of ten UK students, of the 1063 interviewed for the survey, said they do not expect to be affected by redundancy during 2011 and six out of ten remain confident enough to consider a job move in the next two years. 

CIMA also found that the surveyed students are expecting a possible salary increase of 6%, above the current rate of UK wage inflation of 2%.

The survey found more UK students are satisfied with their current salaries in 2011 (57%), than in 2010, (52%). 

CIMA said that after five years of experience, part qualified CIMA students in the UK earn on average £10,000 more in salary and bonuses than those at the start of their careers.
