So, you’re thinking about studying the AAT Professional Diploma in Accounting (Level 4) course or perhaps coming to the end of it. What next? The majority of students will seek full-time employment or additional study after completing Level 4. If you aren’t sure which route you want to take just yet, it’s certainly helpful knowing your options. Today, we’ll be looking at jobs at the AAT Level 4 standard.
Jobs at AAT Professional Diploma Standard
After completing the professional diploma, you will be confident when it comes to tasks such as drafting financial statements, evaluating financial performance and managing budgets. These new skills give you the opportunity to apply for jobs at a higher standard than at Level 3 – usually this means a higher salary, too! You will be able to apply for roles like these come course completion:
- Accounts Payable and Expenses Supervisor
- Assistant Financial Accountant
- Commercial Analyst
- Fixed Asset Accountant
- Indirect Tax Manager
- Payroll Manager
- Senior Bookkeeper
- Senior Finance Officer
- Senior Fund Accountant
- Senior Insolvency Administrator
- Tax Supervisor
- VAT Accountant
There are more jobs available to you after completing the professional diploma than if you’d just finished the AAT Advanced Diploma in Accounting (Level 3) course. We advise that you research what responsibilities go into each role before you apply. You’ll likely find one or two jobs that grab your attention more than the others.
When it comes to applying for these roles, the average salary at AAT Level 4 standard is £20,897 (2017 AAT Career and Salary Survey), so be sure to use that as a guide. You can find out more about salaries at this level in our AAT Salaries Series: Level 4 article.
