Okay so being an accountant isn't exactly Rock and Roll, but if you are already good at numbers (like we expect you are), then you'll be wise to the fact that Accounting is a pretty rewarding business to be in, both financially and in terms of job satisfaction. Now that rocks, right!?
So if you have your sights set on earning a very decent salary in the heart of Bristol then you may need a little help along the way to ensure you fight off all the competition and get to the top.
Regardless of your age, level or ambitions, a tutor can help you to advance forward in the world of Accounting thanks to their expert knowledge of the subject and also the different certifications and accreditations you could be about to complete. What's more, contacts can be great when it comes to entering such a competitive market, and although Bristol is a big city there are only so many Accountancy firms to work at if you want to be a part of a big corporation. Of course, being appointed in an advanced role in the city opens you up to many opportunities across the rest of the country as well.
In the UK, accountancy members are growing steadily, with the membership of accountancy bodies said to be growing on average approximately 0.5% year on year (based on figures for 2014 to 2018). What's more, it is thought that there are just under 165,000 students seeking to enter the profession, a number which is also increasing annually.
Accounting has a long and fascinating history, and Bristol has contributed to this.
Basically, since people could carve in stone, they have been keeping records of transactions. The first English book on bookkeeping was written by James Peele in the 1500s and, with the UK's position as a great naval country, its economic activity increased in the 18th century. Some of the earliest accountancy firms in the UK were recorded as working during the 1780s, with Bristol being among the first!
Under the reign of Queen Victoria, professional qualifications and codes of conduct were introduced for accountants. The industry has continued to grow and expand ever since.,
Accountants play a vital role in all businesses, large or small and anything in between, as well as supporting individuals with their tax needs. They help to balance books, ensure that a large corporation is in profit and suggests ways to directors to reduce expenditure, making them respected and held in high regard by management.
Accountants might work in a number of areas including taxation, auditing and management, forensic accounting, sales and acquisitions, taxation, corporate finance or debt recovery. Some might take up a position in the finance department of a company while others may deal directly with clients as part of an accountancy firm.
Going back to why Accounting IS cool, did you know that the majority of accountants are quite well off because of an attractive salary teamed with knowing how to budget their finances?
A number of accountants famously invented some really cool things like a guitar (Leo Fender, once an accountant) and bubble gum (Walter E. Diemer who was working as an accountant at a chewing gum factory), which just shows the masterminds behind the numbers. What this also proves is that it's not all about numbers all day long when you work in Accounting, some accountants get to become really involved in the company's work and vision and help to make or achieve some amazing stuff!
Accountants do such an important job so it's a great profession to aspire to get into. Rumour has it that it was down to the accountants at the FBI that Al Capone got brought in and charged for tax evasion...
With the industry continuing to grow decade by decade, there is naturally a demand for accountants which means this is a secure profession. Every business or a sole trader needs an accountant so there is so much business out there for grabs, particularly in big cities like Bristol, but there's also quite a bit of competition.
There's also room for progression in this career with many accountancy firms hiring juniors who work their way up the salary scale.
A poll suggested that the average salary in 2018 for accountants from part-qualified level up to senior levels was £62,042, but there's also the possibility of starting up your own business and earning more than if you were employed. If you did this, you could run your business from home, only commuting into the city for meetings with clients thus saving yourself lots of money on travel but still benefitting from a city-centre wage.
As we've mentioned, accountants tend to be very good with their money, which comes with their training on how to manage finances so you'll no doubt found ways to make your money go further wherever you choose to work!
To become a chartered accountant, you must train and qualify but entries are accepted from a wide range of disciplines. You can study with or without a degree, but the higher your level of qualification then the more attractive you'll be to employers.
You can also gain certificates in Finance or Accounting and Business (CFAB) to boost your employability as an undergraduate.
There are three institutes of chartered accountants in the UK: Chartered Accountants Ireland (oversees both Ireland and Northern Ireland), ICAEW and ICAS.
