Are certified or chartered accountant jobs in demand?Industry Leader Answer
Yes, this is because the title ‘chartered accountant’ distinguishes you from other accountants and is globally recognised by employers all over the world. The word chartered accountant is also legally protected meaning they must be qualified, regulated and monitored by their awarding body to ensure trusted and decisive decisions. Chartered accountants play a vital role in the running of organisations. They offer advice, assurance and information that shape business-critical decisions.
AAT is considered and well-known for being a path to the foundation chartered accountancy route. This is because chartered studies are very comprehensive and technical meaning not everyone will be able to begin their path on this straight away if they haven’t even covered the basics. AAT studies will also provide exemptions into their first year with participating chartered awarding bodies such as ACCA, ACA, CIMA etc.Answered on 18 Sep 2019.
