How to become a bookkeeper

Bookkeeping is a major part of the accounting process, and a Bookkeeper is someone who records the day-to-day financial transactions of an organisation or corporation. ICB courses are just one way to help you on your journey in becoming a recognised bookkeeper.

Administration Assistants can sometimes be tasked with bookkeeping duties to offer a helping hand to anyone who needs to carry out this responsibility. It is also likely that Junior Bookkeeper or Part-Time Bookkeeper job roles will be the starting point of an established bookkeeping career.

Once you have carried out bookkeeping duties and wish to become a qualified Bookkeeper, taking a bookkeeping qualification will boost your employment prospects, even allowing you to open your own bookkeeping company if it’s something you aspire to do.
