Today, existing jobs are being redefined and new ones created as accounting firms seek to create greater efficiencies of production and better value of service. Accountants need a broad range of skills to succeed, with more emphasis on proficiency in personal leadership, communication and technology than every before.
The PROACTIVE ACCOUNTANT takes on responsibility for job budgets and workflow. They strive for stronger engagement with clients. They look for opportunities to develop their communication skills. They collaborate with colleagues and know how to work closely with their manager to achieve targets. Finally, they take control of their time and adopt a proactive approach to professional development.
