Accountancy is one of those evergreen careers with unlimited demand and scope to shape your future. Whether you want to become an accountant, a lecturer or maybe even a financial analyst, you’ll have the tools to make it in the working world. When you study with us at Mont Rose College, you could become one of the following…
Accountant or accounts assistant
Obviously, this is the main career goal of many students, whether you choose to study BSc accounting and finance or HND courses. The practical skills learned at college will equip you to work with financial data and understand tax planning and auditing as well as financial statements and the global market. If you have a head for numbers and you’re a stickler for accuracy, you may well be the perfect accountant; you can go on to work for a company of any size from our college in Ilford. Your graduate starting salary is approximately £31,000.
This will appeal to those of you who really love delving deep into financial data and presenting it in a variety of ways. You enjoy looking at investments and you can present a fragment of information in a wider context to make sense of it effectively. You also have a passion for discussing industry issues, such as ethics and risk analysis. Graduates earn £30-32,000.
Personal banker or banking manager
Do you enjoy working with clients and helping them understand the different monetary options they could employ? This is what being a banking manager is all about. At a post-study level, a banker will be learning the ropes of the banking institution and guiding customers from all financial backgrounds. You could also consider moving into private banking management, where clients have large portfolios. Either way, studying accountancy as an HND course, BSc accounting and finance or top up degree holds you in good stead to explore investments. Your starting salary is £18-20,000.
Accountancy courses lecturer
Of course, some people prefer to pass on their knowledge to other students and thrive on explaining the most complicated terms and data sets. You’re a natural lecturer if you cope well with public speaking, you enjoy teaching people on a one-to-one or small group basis, and you keep up with academic journals and research in accountancy and finance. Just think: you could tutor the next generation of accountants! You’ll earn £18-22,000 until qualified, then £23-35,000.
So, which career will you choose? With accounting, you have a wealth of options at your feet.
