On 16 September, Sarah Ryan, Trainee Chartered Accountant at EisnerAmper Ireland, attended the launch of a new partnership between Chartered Accountants Ireland and leading software providers UiPath, Tableau and Alteryx. From the end of September 2019, more than 1,300 students per year will begin to study and develop practical skills in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Data preparation and Data analytics, Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies as part of a shake-up of the Institute’s education programme for final year students.
Attending the launch, the Minister for Finance, Public Expenditure & Reform, Paschal Donohoe, TD, welcomed the partnership noting, “Ireland has the potential to be a global leader and location for innovation in financial and technology services. I welcome the collaboration between Chartered Accountants Ireland and UiPath, Tableau and Alteryx to meet the evolving needs of Ireland’s financial services sector. This programme will ensure that as technology shapes the sector over time, Ireland will continue to have a talent pool of people skilled and available to business and industry.”
Sarah Ryan was delighted to represent EisnerAmper Ireland at the launch event and to meet with Minister Donohue, President of Chartered Accountants Ireland, Conall O’Halloran, and representatives from UiPath, Tableau and Alteryx.
The partnership will create new highly skilled graduates ready to fill in-demand roles in industry and private practice, many of which did not exist five years ago as firms increase their own investment in new technologies to service client work with greater efficiency, accuracy and insight. Currently, 70% of the Institute’s graduates already work in the industry as in-house advisors to some of Ireland’s largest technology, finance, aviation and energy companies.
