RRP Registered Posts: 11 Regular contributor ⭐ ? ⭐
On job ad's a lot of them say looking for a Senior or Semi-Senior Assistant accoutant etc etc what does this mean? (the senior/semi senior part that is?)

Is it to do with age? or experience?

I tried googling it but to no avail!

    I think a Semi Senior is someone who has passed the AAT and started ACCA or CIMA but I'm not sure.

    Some say Senior etc but then say that you can have study support for the AAT which would mean your not qualified so im a bit confused!

    I would say Senior may mean having experience and maybe be a supervisor to a lower level employee?!

    With our firm, we have started as juniors. They then become semi-senior after approx a year and then become senior after 2-3 years in total.

    This usually does tie into training for aat, aca cima etc as most new starters come in as trainees. However it is possible to be a senior with no formal accountancy qualifications, as we do have some unqualified seniors.

    Basically it is based on your accounts experience.
