Career Development

For those of our staff who hold accounting degrees and are employed in either the Assurance & Advisory Business Services, or the Tax and Business Services divisions, they are encouraged to commence the Chartered Accountant (CA) Program within the first 12 months of their employment. Once completed, the CA Program enables you to obtain membership of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Australia (CAANZ).

The CA Program is set by the CAANZ and the requirements of the CAANZ may vary from year to year. You may wish to look at the CAANZ website.

Here at Merit Partners we are committed to supporting staff to complete the CA Program. For more detailed information about financial assistance, study leave and other support available please give us a call to discuss.

Merit Partners also support their staff in the Certified Practising Accountant Program if they choose this path.
