Netsol Technologies Limited has acquired “Silver” approval from ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) in recognition for their commitment towards training and development of students working towards the ACCA Professional and Certified Accounting Technician (CAT) Schemes.
The Head of ACCA Pakistan along with its Business Development Department visited NetSol Technologies Ltd. (Pakistan) to present ACCA approved employer certificate and to discuss areas such as, recruitment, training, succession planning and talent management for Netsol’s BPO department.
Netsol Technologies launched its Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) services recently and currently employs 9 ACCA trainees in this department. According to Mr. Sajjad Kirmani, Director and Head of Operations, this department will very soon be expanded as their organization sees considerable scope for growth in the BPO operations.
“Looking at the growth of the sector in our neighbouring country India, the BPO services stand a good chance of offering lucrative opportunities to companies in Pakistan,” said Mr Saleem Ghauri, CEO Netsol Technologies. We have already won our first BPO contract with an Australian firm.
Availability of skilled accounting and finance professionals in Pakistan who are up to speed with the “International Financial Reporting Standards” (IFRS) is a big challenge, and this linkage with ACCA Pakistan will go a long way in bringing talented professional accountants into our business.
Mr Arif Masud Mirza, head of ACCA Pakistan said that, “The Approved Employer programme supports organizations in reaching global best practice in the provision of learning and development opportunities for ACCA trainees and members. Employers like Netsol have a great impact on the economic development of our society and ACCA is proud to be associated with them.
