One in three employers around the world is having a hard time finding qualified talent —

 including accounting and finance staff — according to a survey by US-based global staffing

service ManpowerGroup. Of the employers polled, 90% say available job candidates do not

have the necessary skills and experience, have insufficient qualifications or lack soft skills.

The hardest jobs to fill globally this year are:

1. Technicians
2. Sales representatives
3. Skilled trades workers
4. Engineers
5. Labourers
6. Management/executives
7. Accounting and finance staff
8. IT staff
9. Production operators
10. Secretaries, administrative assistants and office support staff.
