Lancashire Accounting & Finance recruitment agency listing

Accounting is a crucial industry for the UK economy and has seen it's importance rise in the wake of a recession hit country. It concerns itself with the collecting and manipulating of financial information on behalf of a company and in the UK alone, there are over 1 million people employed in audit, tax or accountancy businesses. There are a number of nationwide and specialist recruitment agencies who look at placing the right candidates into permanent or temporary accounting roles, with particular focus on areas such as credit control and senior finance positions.

Due to the close proximity of Manchester, Lancashire wouldn't claim to have the strongest accounting industry in the country, however the North West as a whole is arguably one of the leading accounting regions outside of London. With experience, accounting can prove to be a lucrative profession, however the expected salary in Lancashire falls between 23K-42.5K. This is significantly less than the country's average for this industry, with employees further south gaining the highest rewards. Of course, salaries can vary wildly depending on job title and qualified accountants can specialise in a variety of different roles. These roles might include tax accountant, treasurer, funds manager, cashier, internal auditor or insolvency practitioner.

You don't have to be a university graduate to get into accounting, but some qualifications will be needed to break into the field. The main routes tend to be completing one of three courses. These are; The Association of Certified Chartered Accountants (ACCA), The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) and The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS). Vocational qualifications such as The Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) can also provide practical skills and act as a bridge to one of the aforementioned courses. Candidates will also require strong problem solving and decision making skills and be prepared to work long hours.
