where you can work

When you think of financial and accounting jobs, you probably think of companies such as banks, accounting companies and financial institutes that handle, exchange or manage money.

Though these institutions are the largest employers in the financial sector, there are plenty of opportunities to be found in insurance, government and other areas of business. Most businesses have some financial component that require or benefit from in-house financial experts or an accounting team.

You will likely work in an office setting and keep a 9 to 5 schedule of 35 to 40 hours a week. However some financial jobs also accommodate part-time hours.

your day to day tasks

As a part of a financial or accounting team, your day to day tasks may include some of the following:

  • planning or administering accounting processes
  • analyzing various financial components of your company
  • managing or processing payroll and employee benefit plans
  • managing or processing invoices
  • preparing tax records and financial statements
  • developing financial and investment strategies
  • updating or managing financial information, often via computer
  • analyzing or making recommendations for budgets
  • clerical duties related to finances and accounting
  • interfacing with customers or clients
  • managing other accounting or finance team members

Depending on the size of your company, your job requirements, and your level of experience, you may be given more or less responsibility.

what you bring to the table

To thrive in financial and accounting jobs, you must be a numbers person. If you enjoy crunching numbers and sifting through data, finance is the right place for you!

In addition to being all about the numbers, you'll need to be highly organized, methodical and accustomed to problem-solving. Attention to detail is also incredibly important, as something as small as a missed comma or zero can change your data significantly.  

Skill in sales, communications and management, while not strictly necessary, will help you progress into senior finance jobs.

training and certifications

Many jobs in the finance and accounting sector now require an undergraduate degree, however, a diploma, certification or related experience may suffice, depending on your specific job title and your employer.

In addition, finance and accounting jobs have numerous certifications available to further demonstrate your expertise to employers. From CPA accreditations for accountants, to CFA designations for financial analysts, to CBAP certifications for business analysts there are plenty of ways to further your expertise and hone in on a specialty. Once you've decided what area you want to specialize in, look into the appropriate certifications in your province. 

where your career is headed

As the baby boomer generation looks toward retirement, senior roles in finance and accounting are opening up to younger generations.

Starting in entry and mid-level financial jobs provides you with the opportunity to grow and gain the experience needed to take over senior and managerial roles in the future. Roles you can grow into include: accounting supervisor, accounts payable manager, accounts receivable manager, payroll manager, tax manager and controller, among others.
