Hi @mibc , welcome to the forum.

+1 for above about Xero, they’ve got a pretty amazing product and would certainly need accounting skills.

In regards to breaking into management, have you considered taking on management courses ahead of applying for new roles to help you make the shift? AIM in Melbourne have a load of different management related short courses that could help.

Also, have you browsed roles on Seek and found any desirable ones or applied for any? I feel like there’s no harm putting yourself out there for new roles to identify skill shortcomings, it’s a good way to define your path and discover areas of interest. Potentially while you’re locked into fulltime work, using that time to try expand your skillset can be really valuable.

Good luck!
