As you will have seen from this course, all businesses can benefit from the skills and expertise of ICAEW Chartered Accountants. That’s certainly true for the people and businesses who have appeared throughout this course, as this short video shows.

ICAEW Chartered Accountants are respected for their understanding of complex financial information and trusted for their strategic advice.

While the finances are key, people skills are more important than you might think. A career as a chartered accountant is about understanding key business challenges. You will have to solve problems, find answers, analyse information and interpret facts and figures, so that you can develop valuable business advice.
