I can't think of a single job that wouldn't end up being just shit though (fantasy jobs aside).
or basically ever.
Maybe if you knew what you wanted when you were 16 and put all your resources into working towards it - But who knows what they want at 16? Or 20? Or fucking ever?
like, turning up and pretending to be head of marketing or something.
(or something else if you are already head of marketing)
how funny is that?
Or a different sort of accounting? Or a different profession altogether?
my contract runs out at the end of march. i enjoy this job, like my workmates and that, but i'm 25 in may. might be time for a change?
Ok, so you don't enjoy your job. It's bearable. Much like a punch the face is more bearable than a knife in the gut.
But you don't actually enjoy it, like you wouldn't actively enjoy a punch in the face.
Every reasonably sized business has a management accountancy function, so if you still wanted to do that you could do it in an industry you're more interested in (or you may just love logistics, idk). Alternatively you've got a lot of real experience in a well-renowned business so that if you did want to start a new career you'd look pretty good to prospective employers.
i think sometimes i'd like a role that is a bit more 'projecty'
Explain the reporting elements of it rather than the actual accounting. It'd look really good if you wanted to go into practice, which would definitely be more project based. Your current experience would stand you in very good stead if you wanted to go into advisory or something like that, and you could probably get an ACA/ACCA training contract with a very good firm.
