How would you like to manage an organisation’s most valuable assets?
What is the fixed assets team?
Fixed assets generally refer to property, machinery and other equipment that an organisation owns. A fixed assets analyst records and reports on these fixed assets, as well as other ‘non-current assets’ such as long-term investments. You’ll be working closely with the accounts payable team and other departments across an organisation to manage accurate additions, disposals and depreciation.
Progressing to fixed assets manager means being involved in all relevant aspects of the business, such as new acquisitions, corporate restructurings, divestitures, and applying standardised processes across the business.
How do I achieve it?
Most people enter at the analyst level, with opportunities to progress upwards to supervisory and management positions. Your progression can also include job rotation into other related areas such as accounts payable.
The knowledge and skills required for this career are available through the ACCA Foundations level qualifications. Those interested in management will also benefit from progressing onto the ACCA Qualification.
