If you enjoy finance and figures then you could be suited to work as an Accountant. As part of your role you would handle clients’ tax and accounts, carry out audits and advise clients on how to improve their business finances.
To be an Accountant you do need to pass professional body qualifications. You will also need to have a high level of accuracy and pay great attention to detail.
You will have to be aware that not all clients have an understanding of financial information and you will need to be able to explain this clearly and have good communication skills.
