Looking back at ACA prospects 2018: What’s Next?


Posted about 2 years ago by Katie Horne

Twice a year ICAEWjobs hosts a career’s event aimed at recently qualified ACAs who are looking to make their next career move. Moving from one industry to another can be a daunting prospect and we aim to help make that transition easier. In May we gathered speakers to help delegates to build both their soft skills and technical knowledge to help them progress. 

We heard from Google’s Rebecca Selwyn, Bluehub’s Matt Flanagan and Capitalise’s Oliver Cummings on the potential impact of Digital Transformation on finance careers. The panel had an incredibly positive conversation about the opportunities digital transformation can afford finance professionals, digitalisation isn’t something to be feared but embraced! 

Often we complain about having too much to do but not enough time to do it in. But how often do we procrastinate over tasks which we don’t feel like completing? CABA trainer Zena Everitt challenged our delegates to get more done in a day than you do in a week by making a few simple changes to how you approach work.

Finally we heard from Jon Da Costa on his career journey at RSM.  He was very clear that your career is your own, you can create what you want with it in areas that interest you. 

If you would be interested in gaining similar insight into how you can take control of your career and mould it into your own, attended our next ACA Prospects event later in the year. Book here
