Help organisations to deliver greater benefit to people who rely on their services
The public services and not for profit sectors cover a vast range of government-funded and charitable organisations that deliver essential services to communities and individuals. Accountancy professionals are critical to these organisations because good money management means more people can be helped, or a more beneficial service provided to them. Furthermore, these sectors are funded through people’s taxes and charitable donations so they need to be accountable and provide excellent value for money.
This sector can involve big numbers, large workforces and huge budgets. Organisations you could work for include the police, central and local government, national health services and charities. You could be formulating and controlling budgets, tracking costs and overseeing major cost-related projects.
