Career change + ICB + next best steps


New to this forum and thank you for reading. I'm part way (finished Level 2 ICB Bookkeeping & Accounts with Xero) working through Level 3. The plan is/was to finish the course and become self employed. I have been juggling this with a completely unrelated career in sales/marketing. I recently left my job with a view to blast through the Level 3, complete and look for work as anything junior and menial whilst building the knowledge, skills and expertise to credibly set up in business as a book-keeper. That's the back story, now the questions!

1. Accounts jobs almost always ask for AAT qualifications (or equivalent) with Sage. I'm proficient in Xero + going the ICB route. Does anyone have any experience of this and advice?

2. Is there a particular junior/starter position in accounts/bookkeeping where I am more likely to find a place? In terms of on the job experience, I know my way around Xero, inputting sales invoices, purchases, the basics (but not payroll).

Thank you for your help.
