Morning all. Random question but are there any accountants on here or people that work in accounts? Xx

Hi Jenny, I'm a chartered accountant and I'd say definitely take the opportunity to study when you've got it. I work as a Finance Business Partner - the job can have its boring days but overall it's great. I get a great salary and you can have a really good work life balance - at least once the exams are over!! Keep pushing yourself - it can be a struggle but it's worth it!

I work as an accounts assistant in an accountancy firm where I did AAT. They told me I was good enough to do my ACCA and that they would support the cost etc xx

It has its moments, it really depends what you like doing. I consider myself lucky because I tend to end up working in project roles which gives me quite a bit of variety in my work which I enjoy.
The studying is a pain, I'm CIMA and really struggled with the final stage, took 4 attempts to get through and put myself under so much stress. For me it really does depend on what job you're going to get at the end of it. How did you get into studying ACCA?

Ooh hey! Do you find it a rewarding career? I'm studying my ACCA and find it so draining and working full time. Just don't know if it's all worth it? X
