Job Description

Are you are tired of the corporate conveyor belt; do you want more flexibility; are you thinking of what's next; are you returning from a career break; and are considering a portfolio as a career path?

ICAEW is delighted to offer the IAC Community another event that looks at the growing segment of members who choose to pursue this type of career. This roundtable event is relevant to you whether you are thinking about developing a portfolio career or are already established and looking to scale-up. Following this path can de-risk your career in times of uncertainty as well as up-skilling you and provide you with a work-life balance to suit your lifestyle.

The discussion panel will be made up of members like you, who are at different stages of their portfolio journey and whose varied roles include: financial controller, NED, volunteer, educator, coach, mentor, consultant and FD. Learn from them the key skills and values needed for an independent career and how to deploy them to develop a successful portfolio career that works for you.

Join us to hear the real life experiences of our panel members, the good, the bad and the ugly. This event will be in a highly interactive “Question Time” format. Pose your questions to the panel directly or via Slido and get the answers that will guide you to launching or growing your own portfolio career.

Please join us for networking and drinks offered at the end of the event.
