The Australian Government’s Job Outlook offers statistics on employment opportunities in the bookkeeping sector, which employs approximately 99,800 payroll officers and bookkeepers. According to Job Outlook, opportunities in the industry have contracted slightly over the last five years, and are likely to continue dropping until 2020. Job Outlook predicts approximately 88,400 people will be employed as bookkeepers in Australia by 2020. However, the size of the profession indicates jobs will still be available in all areas of Australia.
According to PayScale, bookkeepers can expect to earn between $40,000 and $72,000 per year, with an average annual salary of approximately $56,000. PayScale notes a positive relationship between experience and earning capacity, but observes that entry-level bookkeepers may still command a competitive salary, earning on average approximately $50,00 per year.
PayScale also notes that many bookkeepers move to senior roles in administration management and financial controlling after working in bookkeeping for several years.
