Is There Demand for Accountants in the Future?

It’s always been the way that in times of crisis, the accountancy industry comes into its own. But how is this sector going to look post-COVID and with emerging technology such as Artificial Intelligence (AI)? And will there be continued demand for accountants in the future?

According to the latest data, there has been rising demand for workers with a background in finance and accountancy for quite a few years now, with reported and projected growth from 2018 to 2028. Just within the UK alone, research also suggests that an additional 80,000 accounting jobs will be created over the next three decades.

Although demand is high, this line of work is still competitive, so getting the right accountancy qualifications is key. The AdvDip (CPD) ACCA Strategic Professional Level course at the University of Bolton in Greater Manchester is a fantastic way to take your skills to the next level.

Chartered accountant jobs in the coming decades

When it comes to standing out against the crowd in the world of accountancy and finance, earning your status as a chartered accountant is a great goal to work towards. There will be continued demand for accountants in the future, despite the rise of AI and automation. In fact, it is considered by experts that new technology will revolutionise accounting, creating more jobs than it destroys, ensuring job security for those in this field.

Getting your chartership is the best way of remaining competitive, especially as the shift towards more complex roles continues. Bolton University is a Gold-status Approved Learning Partner of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), making us one of the best places to study and work towards your chartered status.
