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.
