Accounting Graduate Jobs in Brisbane overview

Brisbane is a vibrant and youthful city with one of the most clement climates in Australia. Both humid and subtropical, its weather can sometimes get under your skin, but the benefits in lifestyle, work opportunities, and the great sunny outdoors can outweigh the negatives. Being the third largest Australian city, there are many opportunities for accounting work, both in the big firms and in smaller businesses, with the possibility of fly-in/fly-out work also being available.

What to expect in terms of salary?

On average, entry-level accountants in Brisbane can expect to be paid $40,599 a year, or approximately $21/hour. With experience in financial analysis, budget management or payroll administration, you can expect a higher salary. It is good to consider that an average accountant will earn about $50,000 a year, so the predicted salary increase is considerable.

Where to look for accountant jobs?

There are of course the main four accountancy firms that have offices in Brisbane: KPMG, EY, PwC, and Deloitte. Each firm offers graduate schemes, and the application period for each begins in March. However, Brisbane also homes many smaller accountant businesses, such as Hudson, Meritous, Liberate, and McFillin and Partners that offer jobs to both senior and junior accountants.

Many of these companies focus in particular on property, bookkeeping and taxation, so experience in these fields is a plus. Alternatively, there are companies such as BeFree, Accountancy Options, or OneFlare that manage business' accountancy needs, and maintain feedback networks online.

If you prefer passing through other channels, we recommend assessing job opportunities on online recruitment websites. Brisbane will offer many accounting opportunities for graduates, whilst being a comfortable and friendly place to start your career.
