In numerous countries, there are economic uncertainties caused by the pandemic, and our own Global Economic Conditions Survey (GECS), speaks to this ongoing uncertainty. But we know that hundreds of companies are still in need of ACCA talent, the finance professionals who can steer organisations of all sizes to sustainable recovery. Our virtual careers fairs like this one provide employers with an opportunity to showcase and advertise their available job opportunities, and also to engage with new talent and future employees in real-time.”
