Our values and the value we bring
Bruce Cartwright CA, ICAS Chief Executive, explains how strong ethical values form the foundation of ICAS and set our CAs for professional success.
Let me introduce you to ICAS. We’re a global professional membership organisation and a business network for Chartered Accountants. We’re also a regulator, an educator, an examiner and a professional awarding body.
Seeking the truth since 1854
Our motto is ‘seek the truth’, which we’ve been doing since we were founded all the way back in 1854.
It’s stood us in good stead because, whilst the world has changed considerably since then, the importance of doing the right thing remains steadfast.
The business community looks to us and our members to act as ethical leaders. It trusts in us to uphold the highest standards in everything we do – a responsibility to which we’re proudly committed.
We empower trusted professionals
United by those ethical values, ICAS CAs transform business and support one another for the greater good.
And we strive to nurture and empower them by delivering high-quality membership, connection and relevant and rigorous career-long learning.
Our internationally respected qualification
That nurturing and empowerment begins when our members join us as students and take their first steps toward our internationally respected qualification.
Designed to develop the business leaders of the future, it fosters the mindset, technical skills and professional knowledge that are the advantage throughout the career of all who achieve it.
Combine all that with a focus on ethics, sustainability and technology, and it’s no wonder ICAS CAs are uniquely equipped to deal with the demands of the future.
We help organisations add the best
In any given year, students across the UK are working through our syllabus with the aim of gaining the ICAS advantage.
Those students are employed by organisations large and small, from a spectrum of industries and sectors. Whilst the organisations are many and varied, they’re united in the knowledge that training an ICAS CA means adding leaders who’ll instinctively do the right thing.
They know that our CAs are equipped to overcome obstacles and, not just grasp, but create business opportunities.
Above all, they know that they’re adding the very best talent available and doing so on their terms.
