I’m coming to the end of my 2nd year at University and I’m starting to think about where I’d like to work after I graduate. I intend to apply to Pwc and some other top 10 Accountanct firms; however I think it would be prudent to have some contingency plans.
With that in mind I have begun compiling a list of all small Accountancy practices within a 10 mile radius of where I live, and theres 5. Some of which offer graduate schemes.
Getting to my question now:
I would like to know about peoples experiences within small accountancy practices, and what their salaries are like pre qualification and post. And also whats a realistic avergae maximum an accountant qualifying through a small accountancy practice could earn in the future.
My dream is to someday be on a 100k a year job and if anyone could offer any advice on some type of career route via starting off at a small accountancy practice I would be very greatful. I have a few friends who are training to be accountants too, and in 10 years we would like to make our own practice, but this may turn out just to be a pipe dream.
Any advice or experiences would be much appreciated!
