I'll do voluntary work experience in Birmingham practice to gain practical experience

Hi All

I have completed my Level 1, 2 and 3 AAT qualifications last year in July and also completed City and Guilds Level 1 in Book-Keeping and Accounts and Level 1 and 2 Sage Computerised Accounts.

I have experience in retail, retail banking, administration and finance.

I self-funded myself to do the AAT qualification as I wanted to pursue a career into finance as Sales/Purchase Ledger or as Account Assistant as I am currently working in retail want to a change of a career.

I am finding it extremely difficult in applying for jobs as I don't have any practical experience in accounting and bookkeeping.

I live in Birmingham, I am 35 and I am willing to do some free voluntary work experience with a business or accountancy company so I gain some valuable experience.

As I have little experience I am struggling to apply for accountancy jobs.

What I am asking does anybody have any advice for me in terms of what do you so I can some actual work experience which will secure for a future in accountancy and finance.

Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks.
