A IS FOR... (A to Z of Fashion & Beauty Careers)

I am writing a new weekly blog feature, an A to Z of careers in the Fashion, Beauty and related industries. It's something that I wish someone had made evident to me when I was at school and later at University. Unless you know somethings exists, how can you know if it's right for you?

I hope this new weekly feature is useful and here goes!

A IS FOR...ACCOUNTANT

Accountant.
If you have a penchant for numbers & figures, this might be the path for you.
Every fashion house, beauty brand, PR agency & all freelancers need an accountant, large fashion & beauty houses such as Burberry & the Estee Lauder group will employ an in house finance team, smaller companies will use external accounting firms for their bookkeeping, payroll & taxes.

Accountants require degrees, a related field isn't usually necessary if you have an aptitude for numbers. You can do a Business or an Economics degree & upon graduation undertake a role in an accountants whilst taking the compulsory exams within the profession. Further exams & study are compulsory for an Accountant, so if you are fed up of exams post-uni then maybe going straight into Accounting isn't for you!

Nevertheless, being an Accountant can be a very lucrative profession and there will always be a demand for these professionals within the creative industries.

All A to Z entries will be compiled in a little ibooks download in a little while, including further career suggestions, tips & insider information & a contacts list. Watch this space for the download link...
