82,760 Accounting & Finance Jobs in the UK

Train in finance and accounting, if you fancy a career in managing an organisation's financial systems, policy and direction. Not only do financial markets and banks need experts in finance and accounting, you might work in the public sector as an accountant in a government department or local authority. Business and brands need financial analysts, controllers, and auditors too, to make sure money is spent and invested properly. Many financial professionals start off in an entry-level position as a graduate trainee or get a work placement in an investment institution or in a supermarket head office. You will often need further training in accountancy and finance and many careers stipulate recognised professional qualifications.

Responsibilities & Skills

As an accountant, key tasks around financial reporting and control could include preparing financial statements, estimating the costs of projects, reviewing budgets and investment and monitoring spending and cashflows.

Many jobs in finance cross over in this skill set, but you might be more involved in financial policies or in a financial services business making decisions about investment. Many of the positions open in the financial sector look to graduates of economics, mathematics, statistics, business studies or accountancy. A career progression often leads to roles in management and you need to be able to manage people, teams, ICT as well as a budget. Language skills are also a bonus for those who want to work in international finance.

Required Qualifications

  • Recognised Financial Services Authority (FSA) qualifications
  • Relevant Bachelors or Masters Degree or equivalent
