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,

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.
