CIPFA, the Chartered Institute of Public Finance & Accountancy, has just launched a campaign on CareerPlayer to highlight opportunities in finance which make a positive impact on the world.
When you think of accountants, you tend to think of those that work for the big firms on the financial affairs of privately owned or publically floated companies. Whilst this stereotype is not far from the truth, it is not, however, the whole truth.
Accountants work across all areas of the economy, including the Public Sector. This provides opportunities to help local government, the NHS, the armed services, EU or IMF amongst many others. So unlike the private sector there's a huge opportunity to serve the public interest.
