Qualification is still key
Just 6% of CFOs believe that industry experience is more important than qualifications.
Just 6% of CFOs believe that industry experience is more important than
qualifications when recruiting finance professionals, according to research
from Robert Walters, Totaljobs and Jobsite. Professionals are widely in
agreement, with just 11% of accountants believing that industry experience
will be the key factor in developing their career.
The research also revealed distinctions in how much value employers
place on various qualifications. ACA/ICAS was considered valuable by the
largest number of employers (53%), closely followed by ACCA (50%), with
CIMA at 41%.
By contrast, the researchers claimed that just 12% felt that AAT
qualifications were valuable, with professionals in agreement.
Robert Walters’ Habiba Khatoon said: “For finance professionals formal
professional qualifications have a huge impact on their ability to progress
within their career and which roles are available to them.”
