The AAT’s Steven Perryman offers advice for newly qualified accountants looking to climb the career ladder.
For recently qualified accountants, identifying the best and quickest route to the top of the career ladder can be difficult. There is no single, clearly defined route that can be easily replicated by those with ambitions of climbing to finance director or managing director level, and there are certainly no shortcuts. Having said that, there are a few things candidates can do to help themselves progress along the career ladder.
- Know where you’re heading
- Broaden your experience
- Expand your skills
- FD or MD?
