ICB Financial Accounting

There is a skills shortage in finance-related jobs in South Africa, especially as trainee accountant, debt collector, finance management, office administration, accountant and accounts clerk. This creates tremendous career opportunities for you, but If you want a career in finance, you'll most certainly need at least one finance qualification. And you might not know that this is possible even without a matric.
