How to start your career as a bookkeeper or accountant?
Changing your career at any age need not be a daunting prospect, it can be a fun and stimulating process. There are many reasons why people choose to career change at some point in their lives. It might be returning to work after having a family, looking to start a business or simply aiming for better career progression in a new industry with better prospects.
A common dissuading factor in embarking on a new career path can be a lack of financial resources, but options do exist. Monarch Institute’s payment plans allow you to still gain a qualification in a new area, whilst continuing to work or care for your family.
A career in Bookkeeping and Accounting
Accounting and bookkeeping are growing and exciting industries. Every single business, regardless of its size, needs to record and manage their finances, so there will always be a demand for accounting and bookkeeping services.
Australia’s economy is moving from resources to services. In the next 20-30 years, we’ll see a lot more people doing knowledge-based work, rather than physical labour. The skills that accountants and bookkeepers use are transferable between industries, all across Australia. That’s part of why there are thousands of accounting and bookkeeping jobs advertised every month.
You may wish to operate under a franchise or start your own bookkeeping practice in order to gain more flexible hours, more control over your own workload and to be able to spend more time with family. Or perhaps you are looking to wind down from working full-time hours as a transition to retirement. Bookkeeping is a highly rewarding profession, giving you the skills to help people understand the health of their business. Furthermore, our courses can empower anyone interested in finally fulfilling a dream of starting their own business, whatever that may be, and to take control of their own finances.
If you’ve been considering a career change, there is no time like the present. So give one of our friendly Course Consultants a call today on 1300 738 955 or learn more about Monarch Institute’s accounting and bookkeeping qualifications here.
