Bookkeeping And Accounting Careers & Jobs


What is it like to work in book keeping or accounting?

If you are well organised and methodical, like working through documents and enjoy seeing a set of figures add up properly, bookkeeping could be the career for you. Every business, no matter how large or small, is required by law to 'keep books'. This involves the recording of the financial transactions of a business, whether manually into ledgers or by entering data straight onto a computer.

If you are fresh from school or college a qualification in book keeping could be your first professional qualification, opening up a whole new world of business or it could be the first step on the road to becoming a qualified accountant. If you are more mature you will be bringing years of experience to the role and will be in great demand from businesses who want a safe pair of hands. Alternatively you could be a mother wanting to find a well-paid career running your own business from home whilst still bringing up your family.

Accountancy is a career which offers variety, people contact, a professional qualification, high salaries and opportunities to work internationally. Many accountants use their qualification to move into general management or to set up their own business

Accountants work in all areas of business, plus the public and voluntary sector. Many work in firms of chartered or certified accountants (this is referred to as working in “private practice” or, confusingly, as “public practice”). Others are employed by banks, manufacturing companies, local authorities, charities, publishers, film companies, hospital trusts, insurance companies, universities – you name it!
