What to know about working in accountancy jobs
It’s an accountant's job to manage the finances of a company, by collecting bank statements, correcting errors, and auditing accounts. There is a lot of knowledge required in an accountancy career, because there are laws and regulations that need to be followed. But don’t worry, once you get your basic qualifications, you can start working in an entry-level job in accountancy. Most accountancy firms have programmes that allow you to further your knowledge on the job and specialise in certain fields as you progress in your career. There may be additional exams you have to take, either with your employer or with an outside body, but there are heaps of resources to help you ace them. These great opportunities for advancement are just one of the reasons why accountancy jobs make great graduate positions.
Now onto what everyone’s interested in: money. Working in accountancy generally pays pretty well, but it depends on your experience and area of expertise. The average starting salary for an accountant is between £30,000-£35,000, depending on the business. As you move up in your career, with more training and experience, your salary can grow towards the £65,000 mark. A chartered accountant, at the top of their career, can make upwards of £85,000. Many of the UK’s top employers pay bonuses to their number crunchers, so you can top up the salary for your job in accountancy if you work hard. Think you’re up for the challenge? Start exploring your options now.
Part-time and temporary accountancy jobs
Not sure if you want to commit to a full-time work in accountancy yet? How about looking for a part-time job? By providing Accountancy services for smaller businesses you can earn an excellent income and create your own work schedule. Finance departments in larger companies often need part-timers and temporary workers to help handle their accounts as well. Temp jobs in accountancy are needed to fill seasonal gaps, for example when companies need to file their taxes. The extra work needs extra hands, so if you want to gain some experience before you dive into full-time work, this one is for you. Fancy getting a temporary or part-time job in accountancy? Add the ‘part-time’ filter to your search to narrow down the results.
