In South Africa bookkeeping and accounting are scarce skills. That means that both industry and government recognise that we have a shortage of bookkeepers and accountants. The government body for qualifications in the financial sector, FASSET, has done a study on scarce skills in 2015. From that study they published their Scarce Skills Guide 2015.

FASSET is the SETA for Finance, Accounting, Management Consulting and other Financial Services. In their scarce skills guide they identified the following as scarce skills:

Trainee Accountant
Finance Manager
General Accountant
Accounts Clerk
Payroll Clerk
Debt Collector

These are all positions for which ICB bookkeeping courses will prepare you properly. Your bookkeeping qualification will ensure that you are always in demand. It is a great career that can take you to the highest level in an organisation.
