    Online search will probably do some good. Are you near any larger cities as there will be lots of accountancy firms around. Do you want a broad range or are happy with a small niche? If broad look for smaller firms as you'll have to do a larger variety where as at a larger firm you'll probably be in a department covering more specific areas.

    Hi Jack, I would say register online with jobboards (REED, INDEED, HAYS) and also if you have local recruitment branches of the likes of REED & HAYS, to register with them.

    You could also prepare and send out covering letters, enclosing CV's to any perspective employers which you are interested in (both Industry based companies and accountancy firms). Even if no jobs are advertised, a CV could land on the desk of a Director or Finance Professional who needs a new employee in their company/teams!

    Also last but not least, LinkedIn. I found having a LinkedIn profile, helped my job search (from my first accounting role, to even now looking for next career move). On LinkedIn you can make local connections with businesses (HR Departments, Directors, Finance Managers and even local recruiters).

    Hope some of these pointers are useful?...

    Good Luck :)
