Tackling barriers to employment
Access Accountancy is an ambitious collaboration of employers and professional bodies, dedicated to improving access to the accountancy profession. Our vision is a profession that is more representative, at all levels, of the socio-economic demographic of wider society.
The need to improve access
With the country’s future prosperity and growth underpinned by the expansion of the professions, there is a need to ensure that firms are recruiting the most talented people regardless of background. However, social mobility within the accountancy profession has declined, and unless trends reverse tomorrow’s professional is growing up in a family richer than seven in ten of all families in the UK.
