Investec Click & Invest is pleased to team up with ICAS (Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland) as principal partner of the One Young CA competition for 2017. ICAS is the professional body for more than 21,000 world class business men and women who work in the UK and in more than 100 countries around the world.
The One Young CA competition looks to find the top 35 Chartered Accountants- (CAs) under the age of 35, from around the world. From the shortlisted individuals, one will become this year’s One Young CA and represent ICAS at the One Young World Summit in Bogotá, Colombia. Nominations open today, the winners will be announced in September.
The One Young CA programme searches for individuals with real entrepreneurial spirit, innovators and technology adopters as well as those who are passionate about making the world a better place and who are leading and inspiring others. These are all values that we are proud of at Click & Invest and we believe it is important to support young professionals in the early years as they begin on their career journey.
The One Young CA competition celebrates the achievements of CAs worldwide and we are looking forward to working with the team at ICAS as we search for this year’s winner. Nominations are made in one of four categories and will be chosen by a panel of independent, expert judges. The four categories are:
• Innovation & Technology
• Leadership & Influence
• Sustainability & Corporate Social Responsibility
Jane Warren, CEO of Click & Invest comments “Our partnership with ICAS and the One Young CA programme is a natural fit which celebrates the successes and achievements of these talented individuals. At Click & Invest we are always looking to break boundaries and nurture outstanding talent within our own business to ensure we are providing an innovative and out of the ordinary service for our clients. We wish all the nominees the very best of luck and look forward to being part of the journey.”
