It’s important to stay in contact with your new hire/s before their start date. A lot can happen in their notice period, they might accept an offer with another company or may decide to stay in their current role. Therefore, a pre-boarding process is important to ensure your new employee feels like part of your team before they even arrive on day one.
With salaries up to £25,000 before being fully qualified, it’s easy to see why accounting jobs are attractive to those with strong analytical and problem-solving skills.
Although entry into the profession without a degree is possible, candidates with formal qualifications have the edge over those who don’t in this highly competitive industry. It can take anywhere from 6 months to 5 years to study to become an accountant dependent on the type of accountant you want to become and what qualification you pursue.
