We’d like to help you find work or customers for your own bookkeeping business
When you enrol into our MYOB Training Course and choose the Lifetime option and Certificate you can create a profile in our MYOB Bookkeeper Directory at no cost.
We’ve introduced a number of initiatives that students told us are important to them and one of the biggest has been to help then earn money. Some want to find work as an employee others want to find clients for their own small home based businesses.
Here’s a summary of our key announcements over the last 5 years:
- In 2011 we introduced LIFETIME Membership,
- In 2012 we announced Student Community and Tutor Support as an enrolment option,
- In 2013 we introduced the EzyLearn Affiliate Program and
- In 2014 we’re building an MYOB bookkeeper directory for all of our students so we can help them find work or start a bookkeeping business.

How does our MYOB Bookkeeper Directory Work?
The MYOB Bookkeeper Directory is designed to help bookkeepers find employers and employers find bookkeepers. It’s a matching service that is simple to use and is a proven way of connecting two people who need each other.
Create a Profile
The first step is that you create a bookkeeping profile (you can do this once you have completed our online MYOB Training Course and received your MYOB Certificate). Simply fill in the form to create your bookkeeper profile outlining your bookkeeping skills, experience and preferred working conditions. We will then syndicate (distribute) this information via a number of different online websites and channels, as well as via our Partner companies to make your information known.
Working with Small Business
We work closely with small businesses which have provided us with a position profile of their requirements, including the ideal skill set and experience level of the candidates they are looking for, as well as the conditions and pay they want to offer (including part-time/casual work) and match applicants as appropriate.
Our Students; Our ‘Talent Pool’
These MYOB bookkeeping position profiles are submitted among our students, or talent pool, and we then seek applications for everyone who would like to apply for the position. We make sure that all members understand the standards of work required and also provide training on how to perform to our code of conduct.
You are in good company
Most students who complete our MYOB Training Courses are either looking for work as an employee, or want to start their own business.
Some of our students are:
- Mums returning to the workforce
- Corporate accountants who want to work more flexible hours and be closer to home
- People looking to find reliable work,
- People who want to find work close to home
At a recent career expo we attended we were amazed to discover that potential MYOB bookkeepers were evenly scattered around Sydney. We’ve also discovered that the desired work patterns of our students vary. For instance, some are looking for:
- Full-time work
- Permanent part-time work
- Casual work
What are Companies Looking For?
Small businesses are the biggest employers in Australia and they come in all shapes and sizes. Some are business start ups who need someone to manage the financials while they get on with the business they’re passionate about. Some companies are established but still small and flexible, while others are going through their growth stages.
Bookkeeping is a requirement for every company. The data entry for Day-to-Day Transactions, Bank Reconciliation, Payroll and Reporting is required by every business to satisfy their obligations to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). Small businesses need bookkeeping to be compliant!
MYOB is used by over one million Australian businesses, and as a result, most of the employment opportunities are available for bookkeepers who have MYOB software skills.
MYOB Data Entry and Coding
Data entry for Day-to-Day Transactions is one of the most time-consuming tasks for small business, yet everything else is dependent upon it. An important aspect of data entry is ensuring that all of the transactions are allocated to the correct category (or account in the chart of accounts) — you don’t want to mix up revenue with an inter-company transfer, for example. We’ve discovered that most business have the same, or very similar, transactions each month so once a pattern is established this type of work is quite repetitive but most entry level bookkeepers can do it.
End-of-Period Reconciliation and Reporting
This type of work involves ensuring the computerised data matches the bank statements and can be submitted for end of month or end of quarter reporting. This work can often involve discovering errors in the data entry like dates or amounts. This stage is also important to enable a small business to lodge their Business Activity Statements (BAS).

Bookkeeping Induction using MYOB
Even when we operated our Sydney training centres in Dee Why, Gordon and Parramatta our MYOB courses were taught using real life scenarios to give students experience in using the MYOB software with examples from existing businesses. The training workbooks (which currenctly number 10) enable you to work through practical step-by-step examples using the actual software (we provide you with a source for a free download).
Our MYOB courses include training material that takes you through an MYOB bookkeeping induction for:
- Setting up a business,
- Operating a products and serviced based business that buys products and then sells them to customers with added services, and
- Serviced based businesses like a bookeeping business, remote contractor or website developer
- The process of employing and paying someone and reporting on the Super and other tax obligations for that person
- End of period reporting like BAS, End of Month and End of Year.
- Process of buying an asset and depreciating that asset over it’s useful life
