What was your position and once you had completed AAT what did you move on to doing? Did you find it easier to get jobs in accountancy?

    I started AAT when I was working as a purchaser for an engineering firm. My role was then split to purchaser/accounts assistant to gain practical exposure to the theory learnt. It definitely helps on your CV - I went from that to accounts manager at a new company before I had finished AATL4, and again after finishing.

    Been working as shop assistant when started AAT, after finishing level 3 have I found very low paid Junior accounts assistant position I been moving very quickly in the company (Accounts assistant, Assistant Accountant) , unfortunately company went to administration and made me redundant. After two months I have found Assistant Management Accountant position, on completion of level 4 I have received promotion to Revenue Accountant.
    I think the qualification is great but the most difficult part is to get the first job.
