Accountants can often be misportrayed as grey, dour beancounters. But accountants are the cornerstones of every business, keeping cashflows positive and ensuring the organisation understands the financial challenges.
Who can I work for?
You can go into practice (ie, PriceWaterhouse, etc), go into commerce (ie, a finance director with a firm) or work for yourself, representing a raft of clients and businesses.
Where and when can I work?
Fixed hours for big companies with scope for overtime, flexible if you work for yourself. Accountants running their own businesses can expect emergency calls from clients over the year.
What attributes are needed?
Patience, discipline, having quick wits, great attention to detail, a logical brain, good with figures (obviously!)
