Seeking accountants to drive change in Lancashire

Chris Brown - Brown & Co

As the chair of the ICAEW Lancashire and South Lakeland Board, I have had the privilege over the last two years of leading a brilliant team of chartered accountants dedicated to driving positive change in our region.

Our committee comprises ten professionals holding influential positions across various sectors, including business and accountancy practices in Lancashire and Cumbria.

The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) plays an important role at both regional and local levels by providing essential support and resources to professionals in the finance sector.

Through its commitment to professionalism, integrity, and high standards, the ICAEW supports economic growth, stimulates innovation, and promotes diversity within communities. By championing best practices, driving competitiveness, and advocating for inclusivity, the ICAEW is a key player in shaping the future of the profession and driving positive change in the broader economy.

For example, ICAEW is leading a programme called Rise, which is teaching GCSE-aged pupils the skills required to succeed in life and work, irrespective of their socio-economic background and future career choices. It’s not about encouraging young people to become accountants, but focuses on building a talented workforce for the future economy.

At the heart of our mission is the goal of attracting new and diverse talent into the accountancy profession. We believe that becoming a chartered accountant opens doors to a myriad of opportunities, from school leaver apprenticeships to post-degree qualifications. It’s a versatile and rewarding career path that equips individuals with the skills and expertise to become leaders in their respective fields.

We are passionate about promoting the diverse pathways to becoming a chartered accountant and showcasing the exciting career prospects it offers. Whether you’re a school leaver, a recent graduate, or a seasoned professional looking for a new challenge, there’s a place for you in our profession.

If you’re interested in learning more about our work, or are a chartered accountant working locally who wants to get involved with the ICAEW Lancashire and South Lakeland Board, we’d love to hear from you.

If you’re a local business or regional leader who is interested in working with us to drive innovation, develop local talent, and make a positive impact in our communities, then please get in touch.
