ACCA and DFK International renew Memorandum of Understanding

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) established in March 2018 between ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) and DFK was recently renewed by both organisations at ACCA’s headquarters in London.

The revised MoU builds on the success of the original agreement, and seeks to forge stronger connections between ACCA and DFK and its member firms around the world.

Under the MoU, ACCA and DFK will work together to open doors to opportunities worldwide by:

·         sharing information to support market development activities

·         supporting firms to attract, develop and retain business-ready talent

·         accessing global resources and expertise, and in-country support

·         discovering professional insights that support sustainable firm growth

Speaking about the MoU, Helen Brand, chief executive of ACCA said: ‘DFK and ACCA share similar values – especially those of an international outlook and a commitment to developing the profession the world needs. So our refreshed MoU builds on the firm foundations established between our organisations and which have helped to open doors to new opportunities worldwide for both of us. I’m delighted with the progress that has been made.’

Martin Sharp, DFK executive director added: ‘I’m pleased to be renewing this MoU, which has reaped dividends for both organisations. Talent recruitment and management matters a great deal to both DFK and ACCA, and as partners we are able to share best practice and insights to do just this. We have a practical and effective relationship that is firmly based on collaboration and giving people the know-how to grow in their roles.’
