Accounting Level 2 Apprenticeship at MiddletonMurray

Course description

In this Apprenticeship an apprentice could find themselves working in an accounts department, helping a business or organisation manage their money properly.

Running a business involves a lot of financial activities, from expenses and bills to taxes and payroll. Accountants keep track of all these things and more to make sure that businesses – both large and small – manage their money properly. Having an aptitude for business, as well as a way with numbers, is a good start for those wanting to work in accounting.

Job roles in accountancy vary. Depending on whether they’re keeping track of one person’s or a global corporation’s finances, there are several things that accountants can do to help their clients’ businesses. This variety often makes it an attractive profession to pursue. An apprentice could work in literally any industry, and apply their skills to any business type – from large public sector companies and major corporations, to football clubs and small media firms. Whatever the type and size of business, they will always need the services of an accountant. Accounting itself is a highly skilled profession, with accounting staff working at many different levels.

Apprentices will take the accounting qualification relevant to their Apprenticeship level. Apprentices who qualify as accounting technicians might work as accounts assistants, credit control clerks, accounts clerks, or finance assistants, all helping accountants to keep financial records and prepare accounts. An apprentice will learn how to balance accounts, process invoices and payments, complete VAT returns, and help prepare financial statements and reports. Depending on whether the apprentice works for a large or small company, they could be specialising in one area – like sales – or doing all these tasks as well as handling banking and petty cash.

• Accounts Assistant
• Accounts Clerk
• Cashier
• Credit Control Clerk
