Get the recognition you deserve

Sound familiar?

If you can relate to this, then you should be entering Accountancy Age’s Accountant of the Year Award 2001 and getting the recognition you deserve.

The new category, sponsored by the ACCA, to be presented at this year’s Accountancy Age Awards for Excellence, has been launched for 2001 to recognise and reward accountants who have broadened their roles to incorporate a wide range of skills and attributes.

The award is open to all qualified accountants, whether in business, practice or public services. Each winner also receives a prize of £500 and all entrants must be below finance director or partner level.

Mark Protherough, head of educational affairs at ACCA describes the developing role of the accountant – in particular as a business strategist, IT expert or communicator.

‘The key change in recent years is the growing diversity of what accountants do. They still need to be able to do the basics, but also a much wider range of skills,’ he said.

Becoming Accountancy Age‘s first ever Accountant of the Year would be a reward to boost anyone’s career. The closing date for entries is 17 August 2001.
