Auditing and accounting are some of the most popular job categories in Kenya. 2017 has been a slow year for jobs creation in Kenya. However, surprisingly Auditing and Accounting job listings grew month on month between January and May 2017.

According to Data Fintech’s Jobs prediction report, jobs created in this sector dropped buy 28.7% between June and August 2017. Within the same period, June 2017 recorded the highest number of Job applications in the Auditing and Accounting Industry In 2017 but dropped rapidly by 98% in August 2017. Something we can credit to the 2017 general elections.

Looking forward, now that the Kenyan political scene seems to have settled there is good news for Auditors and Accountants at the intermediate level in Kenya. Salaries are expected to rally upwards by 25.7% from Ksh 75,615 in August 2017 to Ksh 101,525 in March 2018, once again making it one of the most popular job categories in the country. This can be explained by the lagging supply. As explained, over the preceding three months ending in August 2017, job applications have recorded a server drop compared to job listings. The growth in median salaries is however not expected to continue past Q1-2018 as supply catches up to demand.to demand.
