Im curently studying lv 4 funded by mu employer and am on £11,250 a year. Just wondering what anyone else is on.

Also, when i was studyong Lv3 it was government funded so my employer didnt have to pay anything, however i had to work back my college hours even tho work wernt paying. Is this the same with others? I was on £10,250 at the time.

    I'm getting near to completing L4 and i am on £12,500 - 24 in the South West.

    I have been quite lucky in that I am able to attend workshops at college roughly twice a month and not have to make the time up - although the times I regularly end up working overtime probably did get taken into account!

    wow i sure drew the short straw in regards to pay and making up college hours. I guess you got to take what you can at the moment tho

    Hi

    Also depends on experience/skill.

    Im in Gloucestershire, when I completed Lv 4 with 4 years experience I had £17k, then moved jobs to £18.5k then moved again few months later to £20 + benefits (inc study support for CIMA). I completed AAT mid 2005.

    I have just completed Level 3 (hopefully!!) and start Level 4 in September - I am on £17,000 part-time (30 hours per week). However, I have been on that salary for three years before I started studying. My company pay for my studies, and give me 1/2 a day off day release.

    I'm an Assistant Accountant in Motor Trade Industry. I'm 25 and have 4 years experience in Accounts, started off as Admin, then Purchase ledger and now my current job so I do have experience on my side. I think my wage is pretty poor so can understand you feeling pretty disheartened!

    I'm unemployed but was recently on a temp job paying 12.50 per hour as a Temp Assistant Management Accountant. Much of what you get paid is experience dependant. I'm using the temp market to push my salary expectations up. That way going lower would be a step down but temp jobs should pay well as they are only temp and there's always the bad ending at the premature end of the job.

    I completed AAT last year. I have 6 years experience starting from purchase ledger and now work as Accounts Manager (actually more realistic title is sales ledger controller) in industry near Edinburgh - earn a very respectible £23k which is good for this area :thumbup:

    lol id consider that more than respectable for someone who is AAT qualified

    Wow, I've just completed foundation, and am on £18k plus bonus..and my work are paying for the whole course and AAT membership and I get day release too (I found another job and they didn't want me to leave so they offered me day release)

    In my case, I've a lot of experience and I'm trying to get my qualifications to match that.

    Hope you get a raise!

    :ohmy: I LOVE your job! What area are you in? So far i only have 1.5years experience but i am about to complete technician and as i know from college and this thread, there are plenty of people around my age who are on much more money than i am. I want your job! :001_tt1:

    I'm in Chesterfield, Derbyshire. To be fair though, my experience is far greater than my qualifications in accounts and the company I did two years for before this job was unbelievably horrid, the exact opposite from where I am now. I'm really happy in this job though, mainly because I can do things how I want to and I have the support there too. I wish you all well in finding a job you enjoy x
