Retaining talent is key
12 October 2018
Public sector accountancy need to be made more attractive to ensure that young talent stays and helps countries develop, says African Union’s Assietou Sylla Diouf.
She told delegates at a recent CIPFA international conference that accountants have become ‘key players’, and are helping to provide sustainability and growth in fragile states.
The big problem is the lack of capacity, with many PQs heading straight for the private sector once they qualify. She explained: “It’s a big issue and as donors we spend a lot of money for people to get the skills and then go off to the private sector.”
