Forensic and Expert Witness Accountants Wanted
ICAEW’s Support Members Scheme provide free, confidential and non-judgmental support to chartered accountants in difficulty. Whether it’s a problem with the practice, partners, employer, a client, a monitoring visit or it’s just that things are getting too much, sometimes just talking it through with another chartered accountant makes the problem manageable.
Support member volunteers come from a variety of backgrounds and have many different areas of expertise. However our research shows that members like to speak to ‘someone like them’. We are therefore looking for volunteers who are active in the forensic accounting and expert witness community to join the scheme and use their knowledge and skills to support other chartered accountants from the same community.
ICAEW will provide induction training and updates on issues of importance as well as an opportunity to network with other support members. Support member role volunteers are also free from the duty to report misconduct in relation to this role – giving other members the confidence to seek their support.
