A prize to kick start your career
Fancy changing the world and getting your career off to a flying start at the same time? Win the ICAEW 100 and you’ll have the opportunity of a life time to make an impact on global problems, network with leaders from around the world and create lifelong connections with like-minded people. We’re offering the winner of the ICAEW 100 an exceptionally inspiring prize: the chance to attend the One Young World international summit in The Hague, the Netherlands.
UK charity, One Young World, brings together the brightest young talent from global companies, universities and other forward-thinking organisations, as well as world leaders who act as One Young World Counsellors. This meeting of minds takes place at an annual Summit where delegates debate, create and share solutions to pressing issues of the day. By attending, you’ll join the likes of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, Sir Bob Geldof, Kofi Annan, Sir Richard Branson, Professor Muhammad Yunus, Jamie Oliver, Jack Dorsey and Arianna Huffington.
When you win the ICAEW 100, after you’ve attended the 2018 Summit in The Hague you will become a One Young World Ambassador along with your fellow delegates. Not only will you be able to use your experience to wow recruiters in your applications and interviews for internships and graduate schemes, you’ll be able to work closely with ICAEW to take forward ideas and projects that could make a real difference to the future of global business.
As you embark upon your career you’ll have the capacity to create change in whatever professional environment you join, and the power of the One Young World network behind you all the way.
Throughout the tasks, you’ll also need to bear in mind six key areas of professional development: communication, team work, decision making, ethics and professionalism, adding value and problem solving. There will be prizes up for grabs for entries best displaying these skillsets too.
"I would definitely recommend entering the ICAEW 100 to all university students. The tasks didn’t take much time and were both challenging (in the right way!) and enjoyable.
The competition completely changed my perception of accountancy. Before, I was never really interested, but my prize with EY was incredibly informative, interesting and inspiring. It was a great experience to learn just how much accountants engage with, and have a huge impact in all areas of business.
I still use one key piece of advice they gave me to this day: ‘if you want to do something, just do it’ and I would pass this on to all graduates for their careers."
Ricardo Verdeguer Moreno, winner of the communication prize 2017
