(An Apprentices Guide)
Firstly, what is actually is an accountant?
Many people assume accountancy only involves a lot of maths & figures. However, there is more to being an accountant (or an apprentice accountant) than sitting at a desk with a calculator all day!
Modern accountancy has gone way beyond boring counting, the computers do much of the number work these days. Every successful organisation depends upon a strong finance department. Therefore, this means that accountants are one of the key players in a huge range of different types of workplaces!
The main purpose of most businesses is to make a profit and this means that keeping an eye on financial results is extremely important. The role involves looking at the income generated by a business and the costs involved. Accountancy is the process of recording financial transactions, then summarising them in a sensible way. Following this, an accountant will communicate the results with interested people in a meaningful form.
What are apprentices and how do apprenticeships actually work?
If you are ready to take on the world of work and pursue a career in accountancy, becoming an apprentice is a fantastic way to get into employment. You can earn a salary whilst you continue to learn new specialist skills to help you develop and progress in your career.
As an accountancy apprentice, you will finish your programme with an internationally recognised accountancy qualification. This is including an apprenticeship award to show employers your proven ability to perform a key finance job role.
