NEW! Trainee accountants vlogging about work, study and professional development

Posted on behalf of ICAEW. Blogged by Hugh Nicholson-Lailey on 07/03/2019.

Curious to learn more about the experiences of graduates in their first job who are working whilst also training for their professional exams? The ICAEW* has enlisted 5 vloggers, including 3 recent graduates, working in very different organisations to tell their stories and take you on their journey to becoming ACA registered Chartered Accountants. See their stories at ICAEW Vlog Stars:

  • Taran does far more than review accounts. Discover his story for first-hand advice on our graduate route to the ACA with Grant Thornton.
  • Bethany’s passion is to help people and support their financial situations, which is why working in government for the Ministry of Justice is her perfect role.
  • Michalis took his career to Cyprus with KPMG and is benefiting from the international recognition that comes with the ACA, a global qualification.

Students are welcome to post questions, which should be answered in subsequent vlogs.

For more information on this career direction, see Oxford’s Accountancy sector briefing.

* ICAEW is the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales, and is the accreditation body for the ACA professional qualifications studied by many graduate trainee accountants.
