How to get entry level accountant job in UK

Didn't find your answer?

hello everyone. I am an Acca affiliate and recently moved to UK from a small country in south east Asia. I moved to UK in a dependent visa and I have a full work permit, and also have a 1 yrs experience working in an audit firm back in my home country. But here in UK, I see employers are reluctant to employ people who has no UK work experience, although I am just looking for entry level job, most likely in a practice where I can learn as a trainee like any other fresh graduate in UK. 

Can you please suggest me, what would the best solution to my unemployment problem ?

This is a question asked regularly and, indeed, recently by someone coming to the UK from overseas. If you use the search function provided, you may find something useful.

how about doing aat L3 /L4 so you get to know our standards and a proper vocational training?
Over the years, we have come across quite few ACCA qualified students without any idea of working in the practice.
Suggestion to apply for a trainee role in the practice (and accept £16K-£18K for a year or two), so you'll get an idea of working papers, reconciliations, dealing with clients and so on. Books don't teach that.
