Im currently studying Level 4 AAt. My problem is that U don't work in accounts or anything similar.

I currently run a cleaning company to make some money, but I would love a job in accounts.

My problem seems to be now that I am in my 3rd year of studies with no experience, I feel the longer it goes on the harder it will be for me to find a job.

Does anyone have any magic solutions for me, or better still if you have a job for me even better, Im in the blackpool area.......

Heres hoping someone has a magic solution for me

many thanks

    Hi tehre

    How about volunteering for a local charity/church or even offering your services for free with you local Credit Union?

    Locally, why not try here:

    Remember any finance related experience counts towards your full membership experience.

    Hope this helps

    Good luck!

    Welshwizard is right, look for any volunteering opportunity, there must be lots of large organisations/companies in your area? (following a mid-life career change & re-training) I did a few months volunteering in the audit office of a large charity, and it gave me experience which helped me get a job in my current place. The volunteering did involve a lot of filing, and tedious tasks, but this is common to most finance offices, and you can learn a lot from it.
    Are there any apprenticeship schemes available? I know that the government was sponsering some places, this may not still be an option, but it worth doing a bit of research.
    Do you prepare accounts for your own company? this is all experience, and helps put what you have learnt into practice.
    Good luck
