Accountants work around Perth

Recommended Posts




Just wondering what the job market for accountants around the Perth area is like at the moment. I have ten years post qualification experience and have worked in an general practice, as a company accountant and now as assistant director of finance in a university.



Would welcome any comments and advice.

Accountants generally across Australia have an issue of too many chasing too few jobs. Hence, the occupation has been flagged for potential removal from the SOL list in July.

There is work out there if you are in the corporate world. I took 6 months to find my job but I work in nfp sector in the migrant/refugee field so a very small field as never worked in the corporate world. I got my job in December but got the school holidays off so started last week.

The job market has changed due to the mining downturn but there are still jobs out there - LinkedIn is used a lot here (for accountants) so make sure your profile is fully up to date and you have some good references on there. There are a few key agencies that seem to have the majority of the jobs and so many of them are from the UK if you have good experience you should be fine.

      Can anyone please help me. Have been trying to get an electrical post for over two years with no luck. All I want to do is complete my gap training so I can do my final exam. I have applied for job after job! Talked to companies and sent emails. 
      There is literally no company that will give you a chance if you are qualified from the UK. Yet it’s ok for the system to take your money for courses and make it so difficult to get your qualification. All everyone wants is an AGrade licence, TAFE wants practical experience so how’s that even possible! It’s a situation that is so frustrating.

      Hi All,
      I am new to this forum and this is my first post.
      I am living in Perth, WA and trying to find electrical work to gain the "A grade electrical licence".
      I hold a provisional electrical licence and require "gap training" before I am allowed to take the required capstone exam.
      I have been in Perth for almost 5 years. I tried to get a job when I first arrived with no luck. As a result of this I started working international in the oil & Gas. I am now trying again and facing the same problems I did 5 years ago. I have pretty much applied to every company, agency and rope access company with only one company offering me a start, unfortunately he didn't want to pay me.
      Unfortunately most companies in WA are not aware of the process for a overseas electrician to gain an Australian electrical license and have no interest in employing a overseas qualified electrician. They simply prefer to employ a Australian qualified electrician or an apprentice.
      I have done some Australian courses and licences such as
      EEHA, High risk work, MSIC, White card
      If anyone can help with regards contacts etc it will be greatly appreciated.
