Accounting and bookkeeping – a growing industry
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 transferrable between industries, all across Australia. That’s part of why there are thousands of accounting and bookkeeping jobs advertised every month. In other words, accounting and bookkeeping is a particularly exciting field. And you’re about to become part of it.
Bookkeeping is a very attractive job role for people seeking a flexible lifestyle. More than half of all bookkeeping jobs are part-time roles. A qualification in bookkeeping opens up a lot of employment flexibility, both for today and tomorrow.
Accounting jobs are skewed more to full time roles, certainly compared to bookkeeping. Accountants are in demand, and job openings are forecast to grow. Accounting is much more than simply crunching numbers. It involves interpreting financial information to allow informed decisions about small, medium and large businesses. If you become an accountant, you will become a financial ‘mechanic’ able to diagnose financial issues within a business and fix them.
