ACCA launches new career navigator tool to inspire and boost career moves


ACCA today launched the free new Career Navigator tool to help accountants and finance professionals progress their careers and take advantage of job opportunities in the resilient sector.

The digital tool identifies the core skills accountants need at each level of their career to allow them to be successful in the next decade.

It lays out the way for finance professionals to move forward and highlights opportunities for them to advance by developing the right skills.

The Career Navigator has analysed more than 120 private and public sector global finance roles and outlines the skills and experience required, so members and students can plot their career path, right from junior levels to chief executive.

Where they lack training, the tool will link them to Continuous Professional Development (CPD) courses to fill the gaps.

ACCA aims to help students and members to grow into senior leadership roles by identifying exactly what capabilities are required at every level and helping them to map their own skills.

The tool will make it transparent to them what steps they need to take in order to give them the competitive edge to achieve the next step in their career path.

If a management accountant aspires to become a chief financial officer (CFO), Career Navigator will help to open the door to their next step, recommending courses to achieve the targeted learning and skills required. It will also link to inspiring case studies of CFOs in ACCA’s magazine Accounting and Business.

The Career Navigator also offers links to current vacancies on the ACCA Careers site at the level members are researching, so that they can seamlessly apply for a new role if they are a good match for the skills and experience needed.
