A SERVICE to help find unemployed chartered accountants a new job has so far placed 15 into new roles.
The Chartered Accountants’ Benevolent Association (CABA) launched a career coaching service earlier this year, prompted by unemployment becoming the second most common reason for accountants to contact the help body – behind stress.
So far, 91 people have either completed or are in the process of undertaking the coaching programme.
Natalie Worth, head of operations and finance at CABA, said: “It was launched in spring and most of the accountants who have since approached us for help have been either at the threat of redundancy or out of work for some time, with some having developed associated problems such as depression.
“Breaking out of this unemployment cycle takes substantial effort on both the part of the accountant and our teams of experts, so we are relatively pleased with these initial results. They prove that change is very much possible.”
