After completing an accounting course, you may choose to work in a variety of accounting, finance and administrative roles.
The Australian Government’s Job Outlook reports that the number of people employed as accountants in Australia is large and growing, with the sector employing approximately 188,100 people. This figure has been increasing steadily over the last decade, and Job Outlook predicts it will continue growing, with approximately 32,000 new accountants required by 2020.
Similarly, you may enjoy pursuing employment opportunities as a bookkeeper or auditor. Approximately 99,800 people are currently employed in bookkeeping and other administrative accounting roles in Australia, and 19,800 people in auditing roles. While Job Outlook reports opportunities in bookkeeping and accounts roles will contract slightly over the next five years, it indicates opportunities for auditors and company secretaries will grow strongly to 2020.
