Intertrust in Jersey has been accredited by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW).
The accreditation means that Intertrust is now an Approved Training Employer and can offer its employees the choice between the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and the Associate Chartered Accountant (ACA) qualifications when undertaking their studies.
ICAEW is a world-leading professional membership organisation that promotes, develops and supports over 147,000 chartered accountants worldwide. It provides qualifications and professional development, knowledge, insight and technical expertise.
Intertrust received this accreditation after demonstrating to the ICAEW that it has a thorough training and skills development programme within the organisation and outlining how it will support trainee accountants. It is also necessary for Intertrust to have special representatives in place to support the students and the firm showed that its representatives would be highly-trained and have experience in supporting their student colleagues.
HR Director of Intertrust in Jersey Lisa Bragg said: “It is great that we have achieved this accreditation and that we can now also offer ACA qualifications to existing and prospective employees. This will allow them to have more opportunities to study on the island and will expand the training courses we currently offer.
“At Intertrust, we pride ourselves in recruiting trainees across all service lines, whether that is school leavers, graduates or candidates looking to make a career switch, and this accreditation demonstrates our commitment to achieve that.”
Intertrust currently supports approximately 80 employees with their professional qualifications, which include a comprehensive range of in-house training, technical training, personal development and management skills.
Intertrust also provides a training programme for those studying the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (ICSA) and the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP), along with other specialist qualifications.
