An opportunity to work abroad
Our CA Programme offers you the invaluable opportunity of working in global markets. Every participant in the programme has the chance to experience working at our London, Sydney, Zurich or Hong Kong office.
'My rotation through different business units every six months, enabled me to deepen my learning and broaden my perspective. I was also able to forge good relationships and strong networks with a diversity of colleagues.'
