Students and Graduates
Our firm has been an ACCA approved employer since 2009, for both the Professional and Trainee Development streams. At present we hold Platinum level for the Trainee stream. This approval means that ACCA recognises the support we provide to our staff who are members of ACCA, for the purposes of Continuing Professional Development (CPD). Therefore as employees, these members automatically qualify to meet ACCA’s CPD requirements for their tenure with us.
