i qualified in a small practice 10 years ago and since then have gone down the industry commercial business partnering route. Have had progression in this route up until now but am struggling now to move on or progress where i am. January was silly in that I went to 10 interviews and nothing came of it. Targeted the sector I am in (construction, facilities management, housing) but it didn’t work.
So I am trying to think outside the box in order to move forward. I see that ICAEW offer an IFRS online course which is 70 hours / 12 months. Doesn’t cost much in the grand scheme of things. It basically teaches you IFRS, something I would have learnt about 15 years ago in my studies but not really used.
Has anyone done this course before? Is it any good?
basically the commercial/ business partnering route is proving difficult for me to progress through. So I am wondering if I study this course, will it open me up to different paths such as technical or financial controller roles?
or are those roles just as competitive to get into? Would they like the fact that I would have accumulated all this knowledge or would they say “all very well but you don’t have experience in this area”?
