Find accountancy jobs and finance careers opportunities with inclusive employers


All across the UK there are small and large companies looking for accountancy professionals with the training and skills necessary to 'keep the books' properly. As someone with a background in accountancy, you know this is a career offering a lot of promise. However, it can be fast paced and pressure packed at times. Nevertheless, that is one of the things that make accountancy so exciting.


Accountancy & Finance Jobs

We can help you find a job in accountancy, under one of the following categories:

  • chartered accountants
  • chartered certified accountants
  • chartered management accountants
  • chartered public finance accountants
  • international accountants
  • incorporated financial accountants
  • certified public accountants
  • bookkeeping
  • accounting technicians

Most of these accountancy professions require certification from an appropriate body. If you already have a university degree, you may also belong to one of the more well known accrediting groups. If you don't have a degree, don't worry; it isn't always necessary. You could still land an accountancy job with some hands-on experience and a certification course. All of our job listings include information regarding the education, certification, and experience required by the employer.

Finance & Accountancy Job Descriptions

A chartered accountant is an individual who keeps track of the financials for a business or other organisation. This person may work for a large company, a small business, a non-profit or any other type of organisation receiving and disbursing funds. Accountancy is definitely a desk job, that's for sure. You might enjoy it if you are the kind of person who enjoys crunching numbers and balancing budgets.

Accountancy is a job requiring attention to detail, for obvious reasons. You will also likely need some computer training in order to have a basic understanding of accounting software. If this sounds like a career you are interested in, you might consider a university education or an appropriate training course. You will also need to decide specifically the kind of work you want to do, because some accountancy jobs and finance jobs are restricted to certain individuals.

Finance & Accountancy Potential Career Restrictions

Although it is not necessary to attend university prior to working in the accountancy field, some accountancy jobs and finance jobs require membership in an accredited professional body. For example, a job involving auditing or insolvency would require government registration, which, in turn, requires the accountant to be a member of an accredited group.

In addition, some accountants need to hold professional indemnity insurance. Accountants working in public practice would be a good example. Finally, certain types of accountants must submit to independent inspections on a regular basis.
