I joined a small company 10 months ago as a trainee accountant. My salary was 15000/year, i was looking for an opportunity just to get into accounting work so happily accepted it. In 10 months i think i have learned quickly. I can use sage payroll and sage accounts confidently and also do some ad hoc reporting for management. Im an acca finalist and i think i can earn more in the job market. I can barely make my ends meet at £1100 a month.
I think I may be able to get 20k salary in the market with the skills i have now and my qualification. Am i punching above my weight or being too impatient. I donot take any study support from my work. I feel like im being disloyal by thinking about leaving within a year to owner who gave me my first opportunity.
I dont think it is appropriate to ask for my salary to jump from 15 to 20 in a year. That is why moving on seems like the sensible thing to do.
Should i move or am i being too impatient?
PS: I love the people and the work im doing, but work is mostly book keeping. However, I want to learn more.
