Accounting Graduate Jobs in Perth

Perth is a booming city. With an overall increase in visitors and population growth in the area, there will be a greater need for young and energetic graduates to fulfil the increase in demand for accountants.

According to Payscale, the average salary for an accountant in Perth is AU$56,763, slightly less than some other cities in Australia, such as Melbourne and Sydney. Entry-level roles can start at $40,000, but promotion prospects in this sector are good.

How do you find graduate jobs in accountancy?

A sensible place to start would be right at the top! The big four accountancy firms - Ernst and Young, PwC, KPMG and Deloitte - each have their own offices in Perth, with each office having its own graduate job scheme opening in March.

Alternatively, the public sector could be a bountiful place to search for graduate jobs in accounting. According to recruitment specialist Hays the ongoing restructuring of a number of not-for-profit organisations in Western Australia means that temporary accountancy and finance specialists are required - especially those with experience in Oracle and Finance One/Technology One.

What kind of roles should you be looking for?

Graduates in accounting may find themselves branching out into other roles, such as tax officer, auditor or even chief financial officer down the track with solid experience. As most, if not all, businesses will require financial help of some kind during the year, it might be worth searching for roles with dedicated firms to whom work is outsourced.

Other factors to consider when working and living in Perth

We've established that accountants in Perth can benefit from a decent starting salary, good promotion prospects and plenty of opportunities. The bad news is that Perth is the second most expensive Australian city in terms of cost of living. It's also fairly remote both in relation to Australia's other major cities and the rest of the world, so bear this in mind when looking for jobs.
