Jobs in Accounting & Finance
Accounting and finance is a broad career area with many progression opportunities. Mid-large firms in Singapore employ accountants and finance experts in a variety of roles. Typically, an accountant's role may include the management of costs and revenues, calculating profit and loss, minimising tax liabilities and providing strategic financial advice to senior management.
Financial Services Sector
A career in auditing involves ensuring that financial systems and internal controls are adhered to, while a regulatory accountant ensures compliance with the relevant laws and regulations.
Product control involves monitoring and reporting on the financial activity of a trading desk. Financial control is what you might think of as a traditional accountancy role, where accountants monitor the firm's overall performance and produce regular reports and accounts.
Roles within the financial advisory services revolve around the strategic consultancy field, where accountants will advise on everything from risk management to new products.
Industry and Commerce Sector
Accountants in industry and commerce are either usually employed as either financial accountants or management accountants. Financial accountants keep track of the company's finances, produce reports and meet legislative requirements. Management accountants review operating performance, examine underlying trends and report on their findings.
Management accountants undertake a range of qualifications run by CIMA Singapore. Financial accountants more typically obtain the newly introduced (2013) Chartered Accountant of Singapore designation.
Who To Work For
The Big Four accounting firms dominate the Singapore accountancy market. KPMG is the largest firm by staff numbers, followed by PricewaterhouseCoopers, Ernst & Young and Deloitte. An array of mid sized and smaller accounting firms also recruit, but career prospects tend to be more promising with the larger firms.
