ACCA’s rigorous scheme recognises and rewards employers’ quality staff training and development and plays a key role in supporting and developing the human resource skills needed for a flexible learning experience. This means that all the employees of Unilever who are registered as students with ACCA will receive valuable support to help them successfully complete the ACCA examinations and gain practical experience that enables them to acquire the range of competencies required of finance and accounting professionals in business today.
The Approved Employer – Trainee Development will also allow UBL to join the Global Virtual Career Fairs, place free job advertising and logo in ACCA Careers, avail special pricing in ACCA Learning certificates as well as access global webinars and CPDs along with ACCA’s Professional Insights (research) resources and Newsletter.
