A day in the life of a Accounts Assistant in the United Kingdom

What I do

Purchase, sales ledger/ bank reconciliations, payroll, VAT returns.

Freelance musician, director of a chamber group. Continuo player. Medieval music player.

Skills I use and how I developed them

Working for an accounting firm in Basingstoke.

Degree skills:
I am a freelance musician and it is self explanatory how it helped, however, for my accounting job it is completely unrelated.

Extracurricular skills:
AAT- accounting qualification.

What I like most

The variety between both jobs - accountancy and musician.

What I like least

It can be hard to get noticed - music is full of frustration as success is hard to achieve.

What would I change? I would have gone to the Royal Academy of Music for a postgrad and started training in accountancy sooner.

How I found out about the job

Gumtree

Courses taken since graduation

MMus in Historical Performance

Where I hope to be in 5 years

Once I am qualified I can progress much quicker.

My advice to students considering work

Get involved in as many activities as possible and achieve things that will get noticed.
