Accounting Graduate Jobs and Programs in Perth
Major City: Perth
Best Accounting Schools: The University of Western Australia, Curtin University
High demand for: management accountants, statutory financial accountants, tax accountants
Western Australia’s mining-driven industry boom and economic expansion has increased its demand for experienced and qualified accountants in the resources and energy sectors. The increasingly complex government compliance and tax regulations relating to the mining industry has driven up the demand for statutory financial, management and tax accountants. Graduates with some work experience can thrive and rise here, with rapid promotion and higher salaries the reward for competent performance. More and more accountants are sought to take up site-based accounting residencies or “fly-in, fly-out” positions. Professional qualifications like the CA, CPA etc. are highly valued. Ernst & Young sponsor a lecture theatre at the University of Western Australia to attract accounting students and Curtin University accounting majors are also highly regarded by employers in WA.
