AAT Jobs

The AAT accounting qualification can be a great way to develop your career in accounting and finance.  Employers of accounting staff like to recruit AAT qualified candidates and AAT students – to them you have shown commitment to a financial career and demonstrated a strong work ethic.  In you they see someone who is willing to go the extra mile and achieve success.

AAT student jobs will provide you with the initial grounding and experience in accounting that you need to complement your studies.  Having grasped the basics of double entry bookkeeping, you will learn how to process transactions through the sales ledger, purchase ledger and nominal ledger.  You will also gain experience in accounting reconciliations and progress to trial balance stage before taking on accounts preparation responsibilities.

Once you have the AAT qualification you can become an AAT member and have the designation MAAT after your name.  As an MAAT, your career prospects and your professional profile are elevated.  Your salary potential is also improved as you move up the ladder within your existing company or make yourself available for qualified AAT accounting vacancies commensurate with your new status and experience.

The AAT can also provide a gateway into a chartered qualification, should you wish to take your accounting studies further.  The AAT qualification provides exemptions from some of the modules on the way to qualification with one of the chartered bodies – ICAEW, ACCA, CIMA, CIPFA and ICAS.

AAT jobs exist within a number of employment sectors – accounting practice, financial services, manufacturing and various areas of commerce.  Within practice for example, you may want to develop your accounting and audit experience in a client facing position. Financial services accounting roles can provide the opportunity to specialise in niche sectors such as investments. Commercial accounting opportunities may provide exposure to financial reporting or analysis within a finance team.
