Whether you are at the start of your Accountancy career or have been “doing the day job” for several years, it’s always good to be on the look out for learning opportunities.
Whilst at your desk, it might seem hard to find the time to fit in another webinar or you may well have other commitments that prevent you from taking on additional coursework. Have you thought about listening to a podcast?

Here are just some of the podcasts you could be listening to …
