A prize to kick-start your career
The overall winner of the ICAEW 100 competition will receive:
- £5,000 to be used for personal development towards your future career
- 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 among other skills.
“I wasn’t expecting to win at all! I was mainly doing it for the personalised feedback that you receive. I intend to spend my prize money teaching myself a new language.”
Dhaval Desai, ICAEW 100 winner 2019
There will also be prizes up for grabs for entries that best display certain skill sets. So, bear in mind during the exercise that these key areas of professional development will also be assessed: adaptability, curious learner, commercial acumen, credible communicator, critical thinker, integrity, resourceful, relationship builder and resilient performer.
All students who take part in the competition will also receive a personalised feedback report. This identifies your strengths and offers advice on how you might further improve your skills and maximise your potential.
