Trainee Accountant Jobs Overview

An accountant is essentially a money guru, and will have a wide range of daily tasks to complete, including:

  • filing client tax returns;
  • making sure that a client's in and outgoings are in order;
  • advising companies on how to become more profitable in their sector;
  • forecasting profits for clients;
  • Investigating any fraud that they are made aware of.

There are some personal attributes which make certain applicants are better suited for a trainee accountant job than others, and these include:

  • computational and computer skills;
  • being able to be discreet with a client's personal information;
  • competent organisational skills;
  • a professional and unbiased attitude.

Accountancy is a great career, but one that involves dedication and great responsibility; two prerequisites that every trainee accountant job applicant should be aware of. There is never a shortage of trainee accountant jobs, especially as they can progress to junior accountant jobs and even finance manager jobs.

Trainee Accountant Jobs Educational Requirements

Becoming an accountant requires a lot of study, as the job involves a large amount of intellectual effort and brain power. The most common entry path is to gain a degree qualification, which is necessary for most trainee accountant jobs, and then register with one of the three following accredited institutes:

  • Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA);
  • Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW);
  • Association of International Accountants (AIA).

An apprenticeship is another path to becoming an accountant.
