Accounting and bookkeeping sector booming with job opportunities

  • Written by Jeff Poe
According to Jeff Poe, owner of one of Australia's largest finance, accounting and bookkeeping training companies, the accounting and bookkeeping sector is experiencing huge growth and as a result job opportunities in the sector are on the rise.  In particular, bookkeepers are in strong demand across all sectors of the business community.

"People are talking about growth in the IT sector, but based on the opportunities I am seeing across the finance and accounting sector, I would say accounting and finance is the place to be," Mr Poe said today.

"We are seeing many start ups and small businesses establishing across the country.

"New figures from the ABS show that the number of businesses operating in Australia is increasing.  As of 2014/2015, there were 2.1 million businesses trading and this number is continuing to rise.   Melbourne is a particular hot spot for start ups and new businesses.

"Every business needs financial, accounting and bookkeeping support.

"While many businesses are employing people in full time roles to undertake accounting and bookkeeping activities, many businesses are choosing to outsource these services to consultants, contractors and specialists without incurring the expense of full time salaries.    This means there are growing opportunities for people to contract their services on a consultancy or part time basis.

"And the great thing about this type of work is that much of it can be done remotely.   Many businesses now use cloud based accounting systems such as Xero and these systems can be accessed from anywhere.

"Retirees, stay at home parents, anyone with reasonable office or administration experience can get involved in providing services.

"Our training company launched online Certificate IV courses in accounting and bookkeeping early this year and the response has been extraordinary.    The courses are offered online and participants have up to 18 months to complete the courses.  Once complete, people can use the qualifications to become freelance bookkeepers, set up their own bookkeeping business or even seek consultancy, part time or full time roles as corporate accountants.

"I would strongly recommend to job seekers or anyone thinking about exploring work opportunities to look into the finance and accounting sector.   Every business needs assistance in this area and with the number of new businesses starting up every day, there is strong need for accounting and bookkeeping services in the market space."

Platinum Professional Training is a national training company with offices in all major cities that offers a broad range of training courses in accounting, finance and bookkeeping including online courses.   Courses are ideal for people wanting to accelerate their advancement, enter the sector or expand their practical experience for new opportunities.
