Following a successful first year partnership, we are pleased to be announced as the Principal Partner of the ICAS (Institute of Chartered Accountants Scotland) Young CA programme for a second year. The programme searches for individuals (under the age of 35) with real entrepreneurial spirit; they are innovators, technology adopters and pioneers in their organisations, who are passionate about making the world a better place and inspiring others. We believe it is important to celebrate and nurture young professionals in their early years as they begin their career journey.
There are a number of initiatives throughout the year which recognise the outstanding talent and achievements of ICAS’s Young CAs (under 35 years of age). During the year the Top 100 CAs nominated by their peers and organisations will be shortlisted and acknowledged in a special edition supplement of the CA magazine.
The programme culminates at the Young Leaders Summit in June where the ICAS One Young CA 2018 will be announced and go on to represent ICAS at the One Young World Summit in October which is hosted in The Hague.
Investec Click & Invest CEO Jane Warren said: “Our partnership with ICAS is a natural fit and we are proud to be the Principal Partner of ICAS Young CAs 2018 for a second year. We are excited to be involved with celebrating their ‘out of the ordinary’ achievements and working with these talented individuals, for whom I am sure have very bright futures ahead of them”.
