Accountancy Level 2 Certificate Apprenticeship at Hertford Regional College
This Apprenticeship could find you working in an accounts department, helping a business/organisation manage their money properly. Running a business involves a lot of financial activities, from expenses and bills to taxes and payroll.

Having a business brain, as well as a way with numbers, is a good start if you want to work in accounting. Job roles in accountancy vary.

This variety often makes it an attractive profession to pursue.
