Bookkeeper Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Bookkeeper in Oxford:
You are an outsider to all other departments and seen as an additional unwanted extra cost to a business. You don't make money for the organization and therefore are seen as an annoying 'must have' expense for the business. You are lucky if you find a business owner who values you. If you have a quiet personality and just want to keep your head down this is the job for you.

Bookkeeper in Alfreton:
"Keep Studying "
I did my AAT and "took a break". By the time I wanted to go back, it was too expensive. Since then I've struggled to make progress simply because I stopped studying. It's hard but worth it.
