Finding a practice job help!

I was hoping for some advice.
I recently qualified MAAT last september. I found myself unemployed last October and after 7 months, I managed to get an Accounts Assistant post at a private school.
I am not very happy there as my manager wont give me a consistant working patttern even though I am only contrated for 3 days. He has me working long day and sometimes i dont leave the office until 7.30pm. The work is not demanding enough for me also.
My heart lies in practice work but I have told it is a very hard area to get into. I would be very greatful for any advice in how to get into a practice from people that have had a similar experience

    I was trying to get some freelance book keeping work and emailed my cv to all my local accountants and have ended up working in a practice (part time) so I'd say thats a good idea. Email your cv to as many as you can find on Google, its certainly worth a try.
