What can you win?

A prize to kick-start your career

Want to get your career off to a flying start? The overall winner of the ICAEW 100 competition will receive:

  • US $2,000!
  • A one on one employability skills session with a member of our student recruitment team. You will learn how to improve your interview technique, create an eye catching CV and increase your commercial awareness amongst other skills.


"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.’ I would pass this on to all graduates for their careers."

Ricardo Verdeguer Moreno, winner of the communication prize 2017




Throughout the tasks, you’ll also need to bear in mind key areas of professional development: adaptability, commercial acumen, curious learner, integrity relationship building and resilient performer. There will be prizes up for grabs for entries best displaying these skillsets too.
