Account Technicians are administrative staff who carry out many practical accounting jobs, including the collation, reviewing and analysis of financial information that is used by accountants.
Many will work alongside chartered accountants; however, it is not uncommon for some to provide independent accounting services. Account Technicians can expect to work in mid to large-sized organisations within a large department; although, there may be occasions when an individual specialist is considered for roles within SME’s.
The main responsibilities of Account Technicians include, but are not limited to, administering payrolls, organising payments of invoices; completing financial and monitoring administration; bookkeeping; consultations and preparing accounts – which includes reporting, budget assignments and providing commentary.
It is possible to get into this vocation without qualifications as some organisations will offer training or opportunities for education on the job; however, it is preferred to have relevant education or experience to complete this role. Potential employees look for skill-sets that include proof of methodical approaches to work, a strong evidence of mathematical thinking and problem-solving, proof of effective interpersonal and communication skills, relevant IT expertise, as well as being able to work both independently and part of a team.
