One of the hottest university degrees on the British and European job markets is held by the thousands of accounting graduates yearly of European universities. Accounting degrees confer professionals with the technical and academic knowledge necessary to succeed in a variety of industries. From small financial planning firms to large accountancy companies, accounting graduates are needed to keep the books straight and help executives plan the financial future of a company. However, accountants who are not interested in working strictly within the confines of an accounting firm have plenty of options.
Management positions in a variety of industries are great places for experienced accountants, who offer the bureaucratic and administrative skills necessary to succeed as department heads. These positions are not for everyone and accountants need to consider the possibility of working in the banking industry as a career option. Local, national, and international banks alike need accounting professionals to help manage personal and corporate accounts.
In addition, accountants are needed to maintain the bank's budgets and help file taxes on behalf of small local banks. While banking positions are lucrative and offer more upward mobility than accounting positions, they can be difficult to attain for those without a lot of banking experience. By working with a recruiting agency, accountants can open themselves up to a variety of job opportunities while developing the skills needed for continued success in their new jobs. Agencies have exclusive connections to businesses throughout the United Kingdom and Europe, developed over years of quality placements and consultations. Accountants who want to work with a local or regional company in the United Kingdom or those who want to develop their skills with an international company should look to a recruiting agency.
