Platinum Approved Employer status is awarded by the ACCA, the leading global professional accountancy body, to employers who demonstrate commitment to good practice in the training and development of ACCA staff.
As a Platinum Approved organisation, ACCA Qualification trainees who gain at least three years experience at Intel can apply for ACCA membership through a simplified process. In addition, Intel Ireland was also awarded approved employer status in relation to continuous professional development (CPD) of its ACCA members. Approved employer status for CPD means that Intel’s finance training and development infrastructure meets the very detailed requirements in relation to ongoing professional development for ACCA members to ensure they keep themselves technically up to date. It means that ACCA members working for Intel Ireland will, through the Intel finance training infrastructure, automatically meet the ongoing requirements for CPD.
Barry Patton FCCA, Finance Director at Intel Ireland says, “These awards place us in the top 25% of ACCA’s Approved Employers world-wide. Having accomplished this level of recognition, we are justifiably proud”.
Intel Ireland has over 5,000 employees and will this year celebrate 20 years of operating in Ireland. Intel demonstrates our commitment to employee development and the encouragement of lifelong learning by encouraging employees to continually expand their capabilities and extend their knowledge to enhance the organisation. This accreditation will ensure that Intel can continue to attract top-class employees for years to come.
Úna McShane, ACCA Ireland’s Training Manager comments “To be given this award is a considerable accolade for Intel. It underlines their commitment to staff development and means that ACCA trainees will receive great support from the company throughout their training”.
