The work life balance

How well prepared for the commercial world do you feel your qualification has made you?

In general, our survey showed the longer a career goes on, the more hours accountants are likely to work. CIMA members are most likely to work a 40-hour week while those public sector accountants from CIPFA are least likely to top 40 hours a week.

Additional time is often taken up with commuting to work. Around half of respondents spend up to nine hours a week travelling and some nine per cent of those who answered said they spent more than 15 hours a week on work-related travel.
