About our career coaching provider, Bob Griffiths, ACA

After qualifying as a chartered accountant Bob started his own consultancy, working with organisations needing support in getting their financial systems straight. Realising that the human element was key in successful business, he trained to offer coaching services in addition to financial advice.

Bob believes that success is most satisfying when reached through good relationships both inside and outside the workplace. He recognises that true success cannot be measured purely in financial terms and enables people to overcome organisational and personal barriers to achieving their career goals.

Bob has worked extensively in the financial services and manufacturing sectors and has helped many accountancy and finance professionals transition into new roles. Some of his clients include the Ministry of Defence, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Coca Cola Amatil, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley Dean Witter and the D.V.L.A.

Articles from Bob Griffiths on the ICAEW Career Community

"I felt really comfortable talking to Bob at a difficult time. He was both sympathetic and supportive of my position. Bob gave me some really great tips to get myself going, and even followed up with an e mail about a month later."

“Bob is an excellent career coach! I find him extremely helpful and in particular my first session with him was inspiring…. I feel I was lucky to see the posting of this service on the Institute’s email distribution at a time when I was very frustrated with my career and desperately in need of advice for a major career change away from Accountancy/Banking.”

“Overall I found the sessions very useful. Bob came up with some good techniques and ideas for me to work on”
