How ACCA helped me get promoted at work

Recently I have moved into a new role in my organisation, which is a promotion from my previous position. A couple of things were responsible for my career progression, but the top reason was that I am studying for the ACCA Qualification.

That is, indirectly – in terms of employers respecting the qualification – and directly – through the knowledge gained studying the ACCA syllabus and exams. Studying ACCA has provided the theoretical and practical knowledge required to rise to the challenge of my new role.

The changes to my responsibilities in the new role meant that I needed a principal level of experience and knowledge. Studying ACCA, particularly the fact that I took relevant exam papers such as F8 and F9, has equipped me with an understanding of what is required in my new role – and how to deliver on this requirement.

My employer has more faith in my skills because of the hard work, knowledge and application required to pass the exams in the ACCA Qualification. Studying ACCA made the transition into my new role easier – and it ran more smoothly as a result.

What I am sure of is the fact that the day I become an ACCA member, my opportunities will become endless. I believe this status puts you in high demand with employers (as well as on a seven-digit salary), especially in my part of the world – where quality and assurance are in high demand.
