Here’s the FULL LIST of interview questions for the ACCOUNTING INTERVIEW:

Q1. What skills, qualities and attributes do you have that are a match for this accounting role?

SUGGESTED ANSWER:

“I have studied the job description in detail and I feel confident I have the right skills, qualities and experience to perform the role to a very high standard. To begin with, I am totally customer and client-focused and I understand how important it is to do a great job for your clients, as the success of your business depends on them. I also have excellent attention to detail and will not make mistakes. If I do make a mistake, I will hold my hand up, admit the error and look to learn from it so that it doesn’t happen again. I can also be trusted with confidential client-based information and will always act positively when representing your company. Finally, apart from being a great team worker, I can also work alone unsupervised and I will always work hard to meet deadlines and do my job with the utmost diligence and professionalism.”

Q2. Describe a time when you completed a difficult, time-sensitive task whilst under pressure.

SUGGESTED ANSWER

“In my current role, I am required to work under pressure on a daily basis. Recently, I was presented with a situation where a client sent over their accounts late and there was a possibility their tax deadline was going to get missed. I had stressed a number of times to the client how important it was to get everything to me by the set deadline, but they unfortunately ignored it. Once they finally sent over the documents, I had literally nine hours before the deadline. I decided to stay late at work to get the task completed, as this was an important client of ours. I worked fast, efficiently and professionally and managed to get the draft tax submission back to the client with just 2 hours to spare. The extra work I put in for the client meant they did not miss their deadline. Moving forward, I spent time with the client reiterating the consequences of them missing the deadline in the future, and also how this could result in an inspection. Since then, they have never missed a deadline.”

Accounting Job Description


Accounting Job Brief:

Accounting roles play a vital part in the successful running of any business or organization. Whether it’s a small, local independent shop, or a very large blue-chip organization, the accounting work needs to be accurate, timely and in line with current financial regulations. Therefore, in order to work within an accounting role you will need a unique set of skills, including an ability to work as part of a team, be able to provide outstanding client care, be capable of providing the right type of client advice, work long and arduous hours and also work to strict timescales whilst under pressure. You will also need the ability to learn new and updated accounting software packages and develop your own skills to stay on top of the financial industry.

Accounting Interview Assessable Skills, Qualities & Attributes:

  • ATTENTION TO DETAIL – All accounting roles require a unique ability to keep any mistakes or errors to an absolute minimum. At the interview you will be assessed against ‘attention to detail’ skills. If you have previous experience of working in a role where attention to detail was vital, talk about this during your answers to the questions posed.
  • CLIENT-CENTRED FOCUS – The client is the most important person within accounting roles. You will need to provide proof of how you can meet the needs of the client during your accounting interview.
  • WORKING TO STRCT TIMESCALES AND DEADLINES – As you are fully aware, working within accounting roles require you to meet strict deadlines and timescales. If you miss these, the penalties can be severe. Show the interview panel you fully understand how important this competency is during your interview.
  • OPEN TO CHANGE & CONTINUOUS PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT – The accounting firm must keep abreast of changes within the financial sector and report these to the client, and in particular, how these changes will impact on their business. Continuous professional development will be your responsibility and you need to have a plan in place of how you intend to keep abreast of the constant changes and developments within the industry.

5 TIPS FOR PASSING THE ACCOUNTING INTERVIEW!

TIP #1 – In preparation for your accounting interview, there are 5 key areas we feel you should concentrate on. These are your ability to provide outstanding client care, work hard under pressure to deliver consistent results, demonstrate great attention to detail, keep up-to-date with new accounting software and regulations, and also work towards tight schedules and deadlines.

TIP #2 – When you attend your accounting interview, we recommend you have a predetermined answer to interview questions that assess your ability to show great attention to detail. There is no room for errors or mistakes within accounting roles, as the company you are working for could lose clients if consistent mistakes are made.

TIP #3 – Naturally, your ability to deal with difficult and irate clients will be more than likely assessed during your accounting interview. Think about how you will respond to these types of questions at your interview.

TIP #4 – At your accounting interview, you will be asked behavioural and competency-based interview questions where it is advisable you utilise the STAR technique. Within the Accounting Interview Questions and Answers guide, which is available to instantly download on this page, we have provided you with sample answers to the types of questions you will get asked.

TIP #5 – At the end of your accounting interview, you will undoubtedly be asked if you would like to ask the panel some questions. This is your opportunity to demonstrate you are smart and enthusiastic. Here are 3 sample questions to ask in your accounting interview:

QUESTION – Who is your greatest accounting competitor and how could I help you in this role to better them?

QUESTION – What are the plans for the company over the next few years?

QUESTION – If I am successful today at interview, what is the first thing you would need me to concentrate on in this accounting role?
