What is a PLAN and why is it important in your accountancy or tax career?

25 Nov 2016

Sinead Walsh

To advance your Accountancy or Tax career you need to have a PLAN – this is how I can help you with that. The accountancy and tax professional market in Northern Ireland is getting more competitive year on year. To be the best, you need to work harder than anyone else, you need to work smarter than your competitors. There is no elevator to success, you have to take the stairs!

What does success offer you as you look for an accountancy job or tax professional job in Northern Ireland? The answer of course is options.

Success gives you far more options financially but it also gives you the opportunity to drive your accountancy or tax career and to obtain what is most important to you.

For some accountants and tax professionals, success is Hermes ties and Rolex watches, while for others it is career potential, feeling gratified in your role, having a good work/life balance, feeling valued by your employer or a combination of all of the above.

Whatever success means to you, it will not come without hard work, focus, passion for accountancy/tax, persistence and striving for improvement.

Whatever your motivation is, you will not get there without a plan.

If you don’t plan then it won’t happen! This is where I come in, I can help you achieve your career goals whether you’re a qualified accountant or tax professional in Northern Ireland. I can work with you to PLAN:

Prioritise – what is important to you, what do you want in your new accountancy/tax role?

List – where do you want to work in Northern Ireland, what companies interest you?

Action – make that move, take the first step towards your new career.

Negotiate – salary, career progression, work/life balance.

I have worked with many career-driven accountants and tax professionals over the past year and they all have the same thing in common – they know where they want to go to in their career.

To be successful you need to understand that to fail is not the end of the world. In most cases, you need to fail, learn from that failure and move on successfully. The more success you have, the more options will be presented to you in the accountancy sector.

So, what does this mean for qualified accountants and tax professionals in Northern Ireland? It means that you are in charge of your career and where you want to go.

There is a lot more involved in moving to a new role than sending your CV to random roles that are advertised. It is important to have a PLAN, take charge or your career and move it in the right direction, and I can assist you in this.
