Accounting and Bookkeeper Jobs

Problem-solving skills are a must for a successful Bookkeeper. As well as covering basic purchase ledger and sales ledger duties, Bookkeepers must have the ability to deal with more complex transactions such as payroll, credit control and tax returns. 

Depending on the size of the business, Bookkeepers generally report to a financial controller, company accountant or director. Career progression may include the supervision of junior-level staff or working directly with the accounts manager to process more complex financial issues.

How to become a Bookkeeper

There is set qualifications to be eligible for Bookkeeping positions, but a college qualification (HNC/HND) in accountancy would be beneficial. Alternatively, specific bookkeeping qualifications are available for study. Candidates should also be comfortable using accountancy software associated with the role such as Sage or other new entrants. 

Salaries can range depending on experience level and the size of the organisation.
