CAANZ Recognised Training Employer in Queensland

Leading advisory and accounting firm and mid-tier graduate recruiter Bentleys Queensland has been named a Recognised Training Employer (RTE) by Chartered Accountants Australia New Zealand (CAANZ).

This recognition offers accounting professionals working for Bentleys with a range of benefits – including a streamlined professional development process.

As an RTE, Bentleys’ comprehensive appraisal system aligns strongly with the competencies assessed in the logbook, which is an important part of the CA Program’s practical experience component.

So, Bentleys team members who are CA Program candidates will no longer need to record their practical experience in a logbook.

Bentleys is one of only 46 organisations across Australia and New Zealand that hold this status and offers its employees this benefit.

“Our hard-working team are committed to strengthening their professional capability and credentials,” said director of People and Culture at Bentleys, Heidi Mayhew-Sanders. “Being recognised as an RTE means that Bentleys can offer greater support to our professionals in their career journey.

“We are truly passionate and proactive in the development of our team’s expertise – not only for their benefit, but of course for the ultimate outcome of delivering the best quality service to our clients as trusted business advisors,” Heidi said.

CAANZ conducts regular audits of its RTEs to confirm each organisation’s internal performance frameworks continues to align with the accreditation.

Bentleys’ CAANZ RTE recognition further cements the firm’s profile as an employer of choice for Queensland graduates.

Bentleys Queensland hired 8 graduates and 23 undergraduates through 2019 to supplement its almost 200 employee-strong full-service professional team.

This is the latest in a string of awards for Bentleys Queensland, who last year was recognised for its award-winning internal training, which develops both technical and soft skills across the team.

LearnX named Bentleys the 2019 Gold Winners for the Galaxy Award – Best Content Curation for the firm’s learning platform, Evolve.

Bentleys Queensland is also renowned as a supportive workplace for team members who are carers – with the firm the 2019 regional winner of the Carers Queensland Career Friendly Business Awards – Great Employer category.
