Jobs in FMCGs
FMCGs or fast-moving consumer goods organizations seek candidates who are well aware of international accounting and finance standards to take hold of their financial or managerial options, especially international FMCGs. However, unfortunately, very few qualified candidates get the positions in the reputable university with the highest grades.
Jobs in MNCs
Multinational firms in Pakistan have a minimal acceptance ratio, and that too for the candidates who have leveraged qualifications from abroad or any other highly reputable institution of Pakistan. However, the ACCA qualification opens the doors of such an organization for you since the program is highly considered in MNCs to take hold of their finance and accounting affairs. You can start the position from a junior post and gradually climb up the ladder.
When you have adequate expertise, you can also avail of an opportunity to sprinkle some of them to potential candidates. You can either become a financial advisor/counselor in any reputed firm or a student counselor for ACCA candidates.
Apart from private job opportunities, ACCA candidates have a broader room of options in the public sector. Government jobs like public financial administrator, income and sales tax manager, FBI jobs, FIA jobs are all available for ACCA candidates.
You can also skip all the organizational involvement and indulge in teaching jobs in any ACCA global-recognized institution. That’s because only an ACCA qualified person can teach in the recognized institutions of ACCA in Pakistan.
