The Accounting and Finance Development Program provides Associates with high visibility within the Finance organization, as well as numerous opportunities to develop their career. The objective of the program is to develop and grow the Associate’s financial and business acumen, as well as the leadership skills necessary to prepare them for a Director role in the Finance organization upon successful completion of the Program.
Features of the Program
The program consists of 3-4 cross functional job rotations within the Finance organization, and occasionally in other business units. Job rotation assignments may vary from 12-24 months depending on the role, complexity, and business needs. Finance rotations may include, but are not limited to, Accounting, Financial & Regulatory Reporting, Planning, Risk, Tax, Internal Audit and Corporate Finance. Participants will be rigorously assessed after each cross functional rotation before moving onto the next phase of the program.
Learning and Development
This program includes a training and development component that occurs throughout the program. The training is focused on growing your business acumen, financial acumen, and leadership skills.
Participants will be assigned a leadership mentor for the duration of the program to support them in their individual professional growth through personalized development plans. Also, as an integral part of this Program, Associates will be expected to assume an active role in managing important aspects of the business related to their specific rotational assignment.
Associates are required to pursue and complete a relevant Accounting or Finance credential (CPA, CFA or CMA) prior to finishing the program. To support Associates on their credential path, the Accounting and Finance Development Program provides the Associates with paid study hours, exam materials, and exam registration fees.
The program is structured with three distinct levels that help guide associates on their path to Director. These levels are based on the associates experience, required competencies and progress toward credentials. The levels help the associates navigate their progress and provide three entry points into the program for candidates. This Associate position is considered our level I, entry level position in the program, Sr. Associate level II and Manager level III.

No matter where you enter the program there is no limit to the opportunities for you to learn and grow as a leader.
