What kind of accountant are you?

Most of you are broadly satisfied with your career. However, there are significant pockets of you who are not. See which category you fall into.

50% – The dedicated accountant
Probably single, under 35, female and working in practice. You feel appreciated at work, proud of your qualification and confident about your future.

33% – The business accountant
Likely to be single, probably under 35, male, and working in business. You may well already be an FD but your aspirations lie elsewhere Ñ either higher up your own organisational ladder or elsewhere.

11% – The frustrated accountant
Unlikely to be married, probably 35-45, male, and working in the public sector with a CIMA qualification under your belt. Entrepreneurial but you feel your employer does not appreciate accountants. However you lack energy to go and do something different.

6% – The disempowered
You are not engaged in the project process in your organisation and are far less likely than others to be consulted on decisions. Likely to be married with children, around 35-45, male, owning and living in your own home and working in the public sector.
