The number of professionals in accountancy doesn’t increase as fast as the companies’ development rate. This is where the problems start for any company that wishes to recruit or retain experts or even juniors in the profession.
It is especially the case of a developing economy such as the Moldovan one, losing lots of specialists in favor of the neighboring countries. So how will company find the resources for retaining and developing professionals and how will work all those involved, from universities to professional associations to offer Moldovan employers staff that have the potential of leaders in the profession?
In order to address this issue, ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) the largest and fastest growing international accountancy association has organised in cooperation with ACAP, the Associaiton of the Professional Accountants and Auditors in the Republic of Moldova in the first half of the day of 12 of June the conference that had as main point of focus the recruitment, development and retention of the best professionals and leaders in finance and accounting at Hotel Leogrand & Convention Centre Chisinau.
The Conference aimed to give a 360 degrees view on the finance professionals’ employment market in Moldova and through the varied backgrounds of the speakers ACCA invited (representatives of local professional associations, employers, training and recruitment companies and finance and accounting universities) the attendants of the conference, more than 130 people, where happy that this aim was achieved.
The conference was chaired by Andreia Manea, Head of ACCA Romania, Bulgaria and Moldova.
This was the fifth event in a series of Employers’ conferences organized by ACCA throughout the world and already the ACCA Romania office is planning an event in Sofia, Bulgaria, after the success of the Bucharest and Chisinau events.
“In the Central and Eastern Europe region, the profile of finance professionals has started growing rapidly only in the past five years – if before the Finance Director was only reporting on a situation now he is becoming more and more involved in strategic decisions of the company, being sometimes even important than the General Director.
It is becoming increasingly important for companies to know how to attract and retain good professionals that have technical knowledge and leadership skills, especially when in these times the recruitment market has no boundaries – for a good professional the employer can be anywhere in the world. Actually this is the exact reason why the ACCA qualifications are so successful in the entire world, because they offer an international pass to all those eager to have a career in the finance-accounting area” said Andreia Manea, Head of ACCA Romania, Bulgaria and Moldova.
“It is very important for companies to know what the stages of developing the specialists are and what they can offer to the professionals from point of view of training. In ACAP we have as primary concern the constant updating of the knowledge of our professionals by organising training events and international conferences such as this one.
This conference wasn’t an opportunity only for professionals, HR specialists and financial or general managers to find out some useful information for their business but was also a good opportunity to make new acquaintances and business relations” Marina Selaru, Executive Director of ACAP.
