As the economy improves, Newly Qualified Accountants have been among those most in demand. Businesses are now looking to grow their Finance functions, to support strategic growth objectives, with new talent playing a key role.

  • When considering a move, it is important you can demonstrate the impact that you can have on a business, should you be hired. Understand its operations as well as the individuals who drive it, then highlight your skills that can help that business meet its goals.
  • Being an early adopter of new best practices will help you move up the ranks quickly.
  • Keeping up to date with additional qualifications may set you aside from the crowd, giving you greater power in promotion and salary negotiations.
  • Finance & Accounting is a field which particularly lends itself to networking. Building relationships with stakeholders both inside and outside of your organisation can not only help you identify areas for improvement, but it can benefit your visibility within the organisation. Regardless of where you are in your career, surround yourself with as much information as possible.

Ultimately, performance will always be judged on getting the job done, but, you need to strive to get yourself into a position to introduce strategy or process improvements.
