When I go to briefing sessions about ICA qualifications and speak to delegates about their career aspirations , one of the more frequent questions I get asked is “will the qualification get me a job in the area I am interested in?” Indeed in the last two or three years this question has increased significantly in popularity due to the rise in recruitment opportunities in compliance and related roles.
The answer is surprisingly simple and very positive. Of course no qualification guarantees you your dream job (or any job for that matter) however:
And of course all of the above equally applies to those who already work in a compliance role where the question that applies is “will the qualification help me get a promotion/better job?”. Indeed we are seeing more and more recruiters in compliance and AML specifying an ICA qualification as a pre-requisite for the advertised role.
Without doubt the most fulfilling element of my career to date as a Compliance Course Director at ICT has been to watch the steady (and sometimes swift) career progress of students who had, a few years ago, asked me the exact same question, “will it get me a job?”
