As long as money makes it go round, the world will need its accountants. Sure, accountants and finance professionals have to move with the times and stay up-to-date, but the profession is unlikely to expire anytime soon.
Accountants record, classify, summarise, interpret and communicate the financial information about a business. You can apply this to any company, in any field, industry, sector – you name it. Better still, you could be working across a number of industries. You can progress to accounting or finance at University or pursue one of the many apprenticeships that are available in accounting.
