CABA, the charity supporting the wellbeing of chartered accountants and their families, has today launched its annual careers campaign with a focus on helping ICAEW members realise their career potential. The campaign aims to help members achieve their career goals with the support of practical advice and guidance relevant to all career stages.
CABA will be offering a variety of tailored professional advice and support online, on the telephone and face-to-face. For 2019, the charity will be offering free-of-charge strengths profiling assessments, which has limited spaces available.
In addition, career, business, personal and professional coaching will be available, with experts from organisations such as Renovo, Chiumento and Arbora on hand for those looking to create a career development plan or for those in the process of job hunting.
The campaign offers tailored support for ACA students struggling with exam pressure, including the opportunity to access personal and professional coaching to gain support with dealing with stress. This will also be available to all ICAEW members struggling with their work-life blend and to those looking to improve their confidence to pursue new opportunities and overcome any barriers to progression.
MaryJane Gunn, Support Manager at CABA, commented: ‘We want all ICAEW members, ACA students and their families to feel that they’re fulfilling their potential, whether they’re new to the field or already established in their career. Through our tailored services and expert advice, we hope we can make a real difference to all those looking to develop themselves personally and professionally, whilst providing support to those who are struggling to juggle, are at a crossroads in their career, or who are just getting started.’
Gunn concluded: ‘We hope to help people, whatever stage of their career they may be at, to realise their potential. It’s so important to enjoy what you do every day and we know that identifying areas that you can improve can be daunting sometimes. At CABA, we’re here to guide, encourage, and most importantly to support members of the community, whatever challenges they may face.’
