Job Description

The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) is a leading global professional accounting body that provides education, training, and certification to accountants worldwide.

ACCA deals with complaints about its members and students, including allegations of misconduct through its investigative and disciplinary service including in certain circumstances, its Disciplinary Committees. In addition, ACCA’s Regulatory Committees consider matters relating to eligibility for admission and continuing membership (including those that relate to practising certificates and audit qualification).

In delivering these services, ACCA acts in the public interest and in accordance with the principles of better regulation. It strives to take effective and proportionate disciplinary action, where appropriate, while carrying out procedures that are fair, consistent and transparent.

One way that ACCA incorporates the principles of better regulation into its regulatory and disciplinary services is through the incorporation of independent decision-making. To facilitate this, ACCA engages the services of independent panel members made up of lay and accountant committee members, chair and legal advisers, as well as disciplinary assessors and regulatory assessors.

ACCA is seeking to appoint additional independent panel members to provide the services of Chairs, Lay Panel Members, Accountant Panel Members, Legal Advisers, Disciplinary Assessors and Regulatory Assessors.

Panel Members do not have to be UK based provided they can attend ACCA hearings at the designated times. Legal Advisers must be either solicitors who are qualified and eligible to practice in England and Wales or barristers (called to the Bar in England and Wales).
