The survey, carried out by Careers in Audit, shows that, out of more than 600 accountants, half of them admitted to being in the process of looking for a new job, with this set to rise to three quarters in the next six months.
According to the research, nearly four in ten accountants felt they missed out on a promotion because of the recession, and are now eager to forge ahead with their careers.
The majority of accountants are very satisfied with their profession, however, with eight out of ten likely to remain in the sector for the rest of their career.
"There might be a new job afoot, or even the prospect of working in a new country, but a vast majority still view the accountancy profession as the best career path for them," the report states.
Earlier this month, accountancy body ICAEW and accountants Grant Thornton compiled a study for the second quarter of 2010 which revealed that UK financial services firms are expecting to employ a greater number of workers in the coming months.
