The advise that I would give to someone considering this job is to do their Leaving Cert and do the Transition year as this would give an opportunity to get some job experience or do some voluntary work within the community.

Do a Level 5 FETAC health related course. The skills and qualities that are needed to do this type of work are a real sense of caring for other people, communication skills, listening skills, be able to take and give constructive criticism without causing or taking offence, patience a willing to give your best effort to your work.

New Accounting Technician Apprenticeship available

A new Accounting Technician Apprenticeship route is now available to school-leavers wishing to pursue a career in accountancy and financial services.

Students now have an alternative to the college route, offered by Accounting Technicians Ireland (ATI).

The new Accounting Technician Apprenticeship offers a fast track to a career in accounting, earning while you learn, and at the same time gaining valuable experience with major accountancy firms, or in small accoutancy practices. Employees who wish to change the direction of their career towards a rewarding role in accountancy can also do so through this route.

On successful completion of the programme, graduate apprentices emerge as fully qualified Accounting Technicians, equipped with the skills to work in industry, commerce, practice and the public sector.

Graduate apprentices also have the opportunity to progress to the Chartered Accountants Ireland qualification.
