Craig Vickery4 A word from the new head of ACCA Scotland
by Craig Vickery


I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to lead ACCA Scotland at this time. The Scottish economy has suffered over the past few years and our members are key to securing a prosperous future for Scottish businesses and the economy.

Our Scottish presence is thriving and growing all the time. I intend to make sure ACCA is well-placed to articulate the voice of the Scottish business community throughout and beyond these difficult times. To this aim, I am already working with our press and marketing team to further develop our media links.

Key to the success of ACCA Scotland is the need for members to feel engaged with ACCA. I am looking forward to meeting many of you at ACCA events or in the workplace over the coming months. I am particularly interested in understanding what you want from ACCA and how ACCA can support you in your day-to-day employment.   

I am a graduate of Glasgow Caledonian University, and I trained and worked at Coopers and Lybrand (now PricewaterhouseCoopers), qualifying in 1994, before joining ACCA in 1997 as a training consultant. 

My experience to date with ACCA has focused on the employer market, growing our student base and working with employers to ensure the best training for their ACCA students. I know that many of us have met in this context.

My promotion follows a two year term as ACCA UK business development manager with specific responsibility for the UK regions (particularly concentrating on ACCA’s employer relationships with the SME and SMP sectors across the country). I fully believe that this experience will enhance my work as head of ACCA Scotland.

I want to lead ACCA Scotland in recruiting the best finance trainees, ensuring they work hard to pass their examinations and become members. But most of all I want to lead an ACCA Scotland that our membership is proud of. An ACCA Scotland that provides the support members need in their business lives.

Please drop me an email, or give me a call. I look forward to speaking.

 

Craig Vickery
Head of ACCA Scotland
