Top Reasons to Become a Bookkeeper


Are you interested in getting into the world of finance but on the fence about which route to take? Perhaps you already think you may want to become a Bookkeeper and are looking for some more information? Either way, look no further than here to catch some of the key information you will need to make your decision!

Here are, in no particular order, four of the best reasons as to why you should consider becoming a Bookkeeper.

1. No Need for a Degree to be a Bookkeeper
Contrary to what many people think, you don’t actually need a degree to get your foot into the world of finance. Whilst there is a lot to learn with Bookkeeping, this can be both taught and learnt over training courses, rather than spending 3 years at a university. In fact, in some cases, it can actually serve you better to go through another learning route if you are receiving a professionally recognised qualification. Plus, some training companies actually offer defined routes into employment!

2. There Will Always be Bookkeeping Opportunities
Being a Bookkeeper means it will likely be rare for you not to come across job opportunities when looking to move on. Due to the nature of the role, the number of available jobs and the job itself will grow and adapt as the economy grows. Not to mention that bookkeeping isn’t limited by any industry – you could work in retail, travel, beauty, banking and sports all within one career, without the need to completely retrain!

3. A Career as a Bookkeeper is Flexible
Working as a Bookkeeper means that you really do have the choice when it comes to who you work for, and where you work. For example, if you are someone who likes the structure of a 9-5 and needs that 11am water cooler chat, you could work as an in-house Bookkeeper. Conversely, if you prefer to choose your own hours, work from home and not have to deal with day-to-day office life, you could be self-employed and work freelance for organisations.

4. More Roles Becoming Available
There is already a huge demand for Bookkeepers, and they are needed, in some form, no matter the business size. From sole traders, to SMEs, right the way to large corporations – they all require someone to handle and monitor finances. What’s more is that there is an increasing number of new businesses being formed as each year passes – none more so than the approximate 12% increase of new businesses formed in 2020 vs 2019! With this being said, it’s clear that opportunities for Bookkeeping aren’t likely to dry up any time soon.
