Accounts Administrator Jobs

If you are interested in a career in accounts and do not have a professional qualification, then an Accounts Administrator job is the perfect starting point.

We recruit for many companies who are looking for an Accounts Administrator to supplement their accounts team. This is a great way to learn about how an accounts department functions in a company and the different accounts available to you as your career progresses.

What’s more, should you progress in your accounts administrator job, then many of our Clients will pay for you to gain extra training and qualifications to help you become an Accounts Technician, Bookkeeper or down the line, even a Management Accountant.

Skills that an Accounts Administrator role requires

Accounts Administrator roles rarely require any skills beyond good numeracy and good administrational skills. Some employers will ask for GCSE or even A-Level Maths, but this is not the norm.

As you move up the ladder in the “accounts hierarchy”, then you will require more and more skills, which you will most likely learn from training. Accounts Technician jobs in London require often require candidates to have passed AAT stage 1, 2 and sometimes 3 and much further up the scale you would usually need to complete an ACCA or CIMA (or parts thereof) to take your accounts job to the highest level.

Accounts Administrator jobs in London tend to require more soft skills, numeracy aside. Attention to detail is key, the ability to work in what is often a “heads down” department and a natural instinct to enquire are important and will enable you to learn about the business and enjoy your accounts assistant job fully.

Working as an Accounts Administrator in London

There are many jobs for Accounts Administrators in London and because we, at Tiger, work with such a wide selection of companies, you could hear from us about accounts jobs in any market sector.

Accounts Administrator jobs do vary depending on the size of the company. In smaller organisations, the roles tend to be more involved with wider responsibilities than in larger organisations where these jobs tend to be more defined. This is down to workload and support – for example, in larger organisation, there may be a number of accounts administrators doing the same job.

When applying for Accounts Administrator jobs in London, you would be well advised to think about where you want your career to go and what type (or size of organisation) would suit you best. Remember, if you decide after a year or two that a career in accounts is not for you, then there are many transferable skills that you take into a role elsewhere, particularly if you then decided to follow the administrative or secretarial route.

Working as a Bookkeeper in London

You might be working as an Accounts Administrator or have been doing an accounts job as part of your PA or Office Manager position. To enhance your skills further and move up the ladder it may be that you are interested in becoming a Bookkeeper.

These roles can be both interesting and rewarding and many smaller companies employ a Bookkeeper to look after their accounts before sending them on to the Company Accountant at the end of the year.

There are many Bookkeeper jobs in London. Some require little experience, but most employers look for candidates with Accounts Administrator experience and also candidates who are familiar with one or more of the accounting packages – for example; Quick Books or Sage. If you decided to apply for Bookkeeper jobs in London, then you may want to consider taking a course in one of the above packages – this will certainly help you find a good Bookkeeper job, particularly if you are able to combine this with Accounts Administrator experience.
