Accounting apprenticeship scheme to create 140 jobs

An accountancy apprenticeship programme is to develop 140 jobs in Eire this 12 months.

pplications are now open for the Accounting Technicians Ireland (ATI) apprenticeship – based in faculties in Cork, Dublin, Galway, Limerick, Monaghan, Waterford and Wicklow.

The ATI apprenticeship is a funded, two-yr, work-centered finding out programme in which apprentices function, find out and earn.

Dublin-dependent ATI graduate Katie Mikulan (23) initially pursued a diploma just before determining to commence the apprenticeship in 2020.

She said: “I started an accounting and finance diploma after my Leaving Certificate, but college was not what I expected I did not appreciate it as much as I imagined and remaining following a yr and a 50 percent.

“College can be high priced, but a funded apprenticeship programme is a good different.

“I would propose the apprenticeship if you are not sure about entire-time 3rd-stage education. It also delivers exemptions for a lot of of the leading qualified accounting bodies if you would like to go on to develop into a entirely certified accountant.”

Ms Mikulan now functions as a tax operations officer with Citibank and hopes to become a totally skilled tax adviser with the Irish Tax Institute.

College leavers, Leaving Certificate pupils, job changers and mature learners can apply as a result of Accounting Technicians Ireland.
