Organised by the ACCA Community and Social Impact Interest Group (CSI), this programme will:

  • Support returners to the workforce by preparing themselves sufficiently for a career relaunch
  • Work with like-minded employers to provide purposeful employment opportunities, career progression pathways and a fair deal for all
  • Tap on the ACCA membership network as a valuable resource for the returners

Together with our partners, we look forward to playing our part in supporting our people, and Singapore’s economy in the long term.

Irene Ho, CEO, The Luxury Network & ACCA Community & Social Impact (CSI) Sub-Committee Lead

"The ACCA Returnship Program leverage on ACCA’s membership to bring about greater good for the community, business and Singapore’s economy. In addition to linking up Professionals looking to return back to the profession (e.g. stay-at-home mums) with the technical refresher courses needed for a career relaunch, we are also able to support them emotionally through the program."

Irene Ho, FCCA, CEO, The Luxury Network & ACCA Community & Social Impact (CSI) Sub-Committee Lead

ACCA Member Advocates & Mentors for the Returnship Programme

"ACCA is much more than just a certification in accountancy; it is a community that is passionate about nurturing the confidence in its members, both new and old, and in doing so, contributing positively and meaningfully to the economy. This is why the returnship programme carries so much weight."

Alia Saleh FCCA, Finance Director (SEA and ME), ISG

"Mothers do an amazing job in raising children. We all have a responsibility to help them return to their careers when ready. We must break down barriers and obstacles alongside them to help them in achieving their personal and professional goals."

Prempal Hundal, FCCA, Regional Internal Controller, Galderma

"The Returnship program provides a route for those wanting to return to the workplace. This is a daunting process for most returnees especially bearing in mind the high speed of evolution in the workplace and the profession. This program aims to fill in the gaps beyond the technical requirements, in terms of support, mentorship and access to opportunities."

Sanjay Chandarana, FCCA, Finance Director - Asia Pacific Communications & Security Solutions, Anixter Singapore
