Arjan Bains, CA Student
Current Student, Arjan Bains, decided to pursue the CA qualification alongside a role at KPMG whilst helping to create positive change through volunteering with ICAS’ EDI Committee.
I am a Senior Audit Associate at KPMG.
Why did you decide to become a CA?
I actually started the CA qualification because a number of years ago, KPMG offered me the chance to get a fully sponsored degree and also to work for them. But as part of that, I also had the CA qualification built in.
Do you have any advice for those considering training to become a CA through ICAS?
My advice would be to know that it is a commitment, but equally know that you learn so much
and you’ll likely meet some fantastic people along the way.
Are you involved in voluntary work?
I am involved in voluntary work, the main thing that I do is I work on the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee for ICAS. It is something which I think makes a positive difference to our community. I’m actually really grateful to have the chance to do that.
