From the Philippines to the UK, Ericson, CPA…

Think Global Recruitment was very helpful throughout the recruitment. They do not just give out your resume to the different employers but they are always with you in “every step of the way”. They are very informative and give you tips and research about your prospective employer. I also like the pre and post evaluation calls after every interviews. This helps the applicant to know what went well and what are the things that could be improved on.  Moreover, The UK is 7 hours behind the Philippines. Think Global Recruitment was really accommodating when it comes to your schedule. I am very thankful for Think Global Recruitment and Michael for helping me all the way through the process.

I am currently preparing to move in the UK by the end of the month, I am a bit scared but more of being excited to move in the UK and grow in my profession. I know that this will give me  experience that will benefit me personally, professionally and financially.  I know l will make a difference. For those who want to experience a global move in their career, follow your thoughts and dreams. There are a lot of opportunities waiting for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

accounting jobs in uk for filipino

The UK is an exciting place to be for an accountant - from the “square-mile” in London to the Scottish capital of Edinburgh. While London, after 300 years, remains the financial centre of Europe the rest of the UK also needs accountants with overseas experience. Jumpstart your job search by  registering  with agencies who specialise in finding accounting work for travelers. 

The Opportunity

Available Opportunities 

There is quite the array of accounting opportunities for working travelers from countries like Australia, New Zealand and Canada in the UK. Positions range from Part Qualified to Chartered Accountant. Employment can be found within the private and public sectors, in-house or within large firms including banking accounting, management accounting, treasury and audit.   

List of Common Accounting Jobs

Beyond the Private Sector: Public Sector and Banking

Apart from the conventional accounting roles you would expect to find in a metropolis there are possibly two major areas that stand out - Public Sector and Banking.

Public Sector:  Contrary to popular belief, public sector accounting is diverse and thriving, including local and federal government and the National Health Service, which are all evolving to become far more commercially focused. Recently however, budget cuts have made some sectors more difficult to secure employment.

Banking and Finance:  The Banking and Finance sector, in London in particular has also provided exciting opportunities and continues to provide excellent job options for people from overseas. Some common areas are financial accounting/ reporting and financial analysis. Another big area is commerce where responsibilities for accountants vary from management/financial accounting through to business analysis and project driven roles.

An Internaional Market: London and Beyond 

Find positions in bustling London, just outside the city in what some call "real England," or throughout Scotland, where accountants are continually in high demand. A number of working travelers are also finding employment in other major centres such as Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, Glasgow and Edinburgh. More . 

How Much You'll Earn

Contract vs. permanent positions, how to prepare, past experience required .

For a degree-qualified accountant you will ideally be qualified or have 1-2 year’s solid experience in your home country. As an accounts assistant or in general accounts, experience will be the key and once again; 1-2 years experience is accepted. The possible exception to this rule is if you hold an EU passports or UK Ancestry Visa where you can be considered for permanent positions on an equal footing with your British recent graduate counterparts.

Qualifications You Need

Degrees, dimplomas and certificate qualifications gained in  Australia, New Zealand, South Africa or Canada will be recognised in the UK. If you're considering long-term opportunities in the UK, transerring your qualfications can be advantageous. The majority of professional qualificaitons earned outside of the UK will be transferrable.  In order to achieve the equivalent UK qualification, often you will need to acquire some UK experience and sit some exams.

Exactly how much experience and additional study you need to do is a function of the qualifications you currently have, and the country from which you received your qualifications.  Either way, it's  helpful to get to know the three major British professional qulifications: ACA, CIMA AND ACCA. 

Major British Professional Qualifications

Find out about specific qualification requirements by visiiting the 3 major professional bodies:

ICAEW         ACCA         CIMA  

Skills of the Ideal Candidate

In general, experience of relevant industry systems, specialised products and competency in using a spreadsheet are all skills that you should ensure are communicated clearly on your resume. Also if you are multilingual be sure to also put this at the top of your resume, there are a considerable number of accounting opportunites in the UK that require competency in another language.

Can I secure an accounting job before arriving in the UK?

It is not common to secure a position prior to leaving home but there is a lot you can do before you arrive.

Before you leave home you should endevour to make contact with recruitment agencies that are specialists at helping accountants. These companies can ensure you are put forward to roles that are suitable for your experience and also match your visa and travel needs if required. This way you can hit the ground running.

What kind of accounting opportunities are available in the UK?

Whether you're a partially or fully qualified accountant or simply have significant relevant experience, you will find a suitable opportunity in England or Scotland. Both contract and permanent positions are available in  the Private Sector, as well as to the Public and Banking and Finance Sector. You can expect to find a long-term contract job, or a series of short-term contract positions.

Will my overseas qualifications be recognised in Britain?

The certificate qualifications, as well as the degrees and diploma, that you've earned in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa or Canada will be recognised in the UK. Your experience will also be highly regarded and once you gain UK experience you will find your resume will lead to even more interviews.

Should I get UK accouting qualifications?

There are four professional accounting qualifications - ACA, CIMA, ACCA and AAT. These qualifications are given to individuals by the various professional accounting organisations in the UK. There is a perception by British employers that different qualifications are advantageous for different roles. As with most professions however, your experience is the most important consideration. If you are planning a long term stay or want to continue along a particular career path you would do well to consider gaining the qualifications in line with your aspirations. Since CA or CPA qualifications are international in nature they are quickly recognised.

How much will I earn?

Pay rates of course depend on your specific experience and on the company or institution that employs you. As a general rule, as you gain UK experience your rate will go up accordingly. British qualifications and part-qualifications such as ACA, CIMA, and ACCA may also factor into the equation. For contract positions, wages start at  £12 per hour and range to £35. View full eanings table.  

Where are the accounting opportunities in England and Scotland?

Traditionally there are a wide variety of accounting positions thoughout England and Scotland. In the city of London for example, there has always been a high demand for contractors. Outside of London, there are also opportunities on offer. Scotland in particular has a steady need for qualified accountants. Many companies have offices just outside of London in the nearby counties. Working in these counties, such as Middlesex, Hertfordshire, Berkshire and Surrey enable many travellers to live just outside of London in what some call “real England” or alternately enjoy the many fruits of living in London with the advantage of an easy commute against the traffic. A growing number of travellers are also finding employment in the major centres such as Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, Glasgow and Edinburgh.

What is the minimum experience required?

You should have 1-2 years of relevant experience in your home country, regardless of whether you're a degree-qualified accountant, or work as an accounts assistant or in general accounts. The only potential exception to this rule applies to travelers with an EU passport or Ancestry Visa. In these cases, you may be able to compete with other recent graduates from the UK but if possible gaining experience at home will put you at a significant advantage.

UK opens opportunities for accountants, auditors, other jobs for OFWs

Photo of Staff Report

The UK is witnessing increasing job opportunities emerging in its financial sector that can benefit OFWs from the Philippines, according to the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).

The Philippines has been receiving job orders that highlight an increase in demand for accountants, auditors, and seasonal agriculture workers in potato farms.

London Labor Attaché Amuerfina Reyes added that the labor office is still getting more job orders and contracts for senior health care workers due to the pandemic.

Noting that the UK is witnessing a big demand for nurses and healthcare-related jobs in the COVID-19 pandemic, Reyes said that the recruitment preference is more towards Filipino workers for their good work ethics and passionate devotion to work.

The UK Nursing and Midwifery Council figures highlighted around 13,000 Filipinos being employed in the UK healthcare sector — which would need about 50,000 nurses by 2024. Reyes also praised the UK for providing Filipinos with a good working environment.

Filipinos coming to the UK are vaccinated after the quarantine period and, in March, the Philippine government had okayed the UK’s request for exemption from the cap on Filipino nurses allowed to leave the country for jobs overseas. (AW)

Salary of an Accountant in the United Kingdom

accounting jobs in uk for filipino

How Much Can You Earn as an Accountant in the UK?

Accountant salary.

An average CPA or qualified accountant working in these cities can earn at least 40,000 to 80,000 pounds per year. When converted to Philippine pesos, that is equivalent to a monthly salary of over 200,000 pesos to 450,000 pesos.

A higher rank, specifically a manager position, will raise your salary by around 20 percent. Moreover, if you are a senior manager, your salary will increase by another 20 percent.

Therefore, the best way to get a higher salary is to get more work experience.

You have to consider the cost of living though, which varies in location. As mentioned above, the cost of living is higher in the bigger cities. In fact, the most expensive city in the UK is the capital itself, London. The next is Cambridge, where our YouTuber lives.

Accommodation is 1000 to 1500 pounds per month for a 2 to 3 bedroom flat. To save money, follow what most people do there which is house share. Get others to live with you in the same flat, and divide the rent amongst each other.

Getting an Accounting Job in the UK

Where the challenge lies is in getting a visa and a work permit. As mentioned above, if you want to work as an accountant in the UK, you need to be sure that the company you wish to work in can sponsor your visa.

According to our YouTuber, applying for an auditor job in the UK is probably the easiest way to work in the country. To those who don’t want to work as an auditor, you should just check out the websites of the firms mentioned above, as they are the ones that can sponsor visa.
