UK accountant looking for a job in the US.
posted by subtle-t to Work & Money (3 answers total)
My cousin is a UK qualified accountant with an ACCA certification and works in the public sector. She wants to move to the US (DC, specifically) and is looking for tips on starting a job search. I know nothing about accounting, but, from some preliminary research, it looks like the ACCA certification is not recognized in the US and most jobs tend to require a CPA qualification. Although she may want to get CPA qualified at some point, she doesn't intend to do so before commencing the US job search in earnest.
Do you know what sort of jobs a UK qualified accountant should be looking for in the US without a CPA, and where to look for them (i.e., names of specific headhunters / recruitment agencies)? Thanks very much.
