    A lot of people are in your shoes, including me! I'm doing level 2 also and have no experience.
    The best way I think is to look for Volunteer roles as Treasurers for charity or local organisations. That's what I'm doing, to build up my experience.
    Just explain your situation, how your learning but want practical work to test your knowledge too.
    I have 2 Treasurer positions and they are both very supportive, as I was honest from the start about my learning and lack of experience.

    This is a Volunteer website nationwide and also look for local charities too.

    Let me know how you get on.
