Salary Advice

I'm expecting a pay rise in February and am due, if i pass, to be AAT qualified and a full member by August (being when the results are announced).

By question is what should i expect to receive as a salary being a full AAT member? I work in practise in a small firm of which the proprietor has funded my study.

Thanks for your help

    I work in Watford and hope to be qualified by August 08. I already earn £22,500. I do not know if this is a standard sort of salary or not.

    Hi Mike

    I work in St Albans (Hertfordshire) and I am currently looking to finish my AAT at the same time as you. My employer does not have any involvement in and does not fund my study and I earn £23k.

    I hope this helps

    Thanks for your help, i work in Liverpool so dont know if wages tend to be lower up north as my salary is less than yours.

    I'll look into it and speak to my boss.

    Thanks again.

    Salary Advice

    Hi Mike
    I have just re-negotiated my salary and went on to the Hays website to do some research into salaries for different job roles.

    Go to www.hays.com and once on the site click on LOOKING FOR STAFF? and then under 'Find Out More' you will see Salary Guides. Click on this to get to a list of different business sectors, click on the one you want and go from there.

    Hope you find this as useful as I did

    Wow. You're Frank Wood.

    Are you the "Frank Wood"?

    If you are, I thought you have qualified years ago.

    If you are not, then did you know that there was a whole range of accounting books written by someone called "Frank Wood".

    Well there you go. That is my useless piece of information for today.

    Thanks again everyone for the feedback. So according to Hays being a qualified accounting technician in public practise, working in Merseyside the typical salary is £15500 - you must have a good boss Frank Wood!!

    Hi Speegs

    No I'm not the Frank Wood, it's just tongue in cheek - that's not even my name. I think he died years ago.
