A SUCCESSFUL CAREER IN FINANCE AND ACCOUNTANCY WITH ACCA


Beginning a career on the right path Sreekar Periketi works in Treasury Market Risk at Santander, and is a fully qualified chartered and certified accountant. He says that though studying for his ACCA Qualification was hard work, ‘As in any profession, hard work will pay itself in dividends... the rewards and skills gained are invaluable, and can be used in any industry.’


Mechanical Engineering graduate Sreekar’s passion for business led him to a career in accountancy. ‘I wanted to add significant value to a company’, explains Sreekar. ‘Having a detailed knowledge of how the value chain of a business impacts the financial statements enables a firm to focus and enhance its core capabilities... I wanted to be part of this machine.’


To help fulfil his ambition, Sreekar chose ACCA. ‘ACCA provides the perfect career platform’, he explains. ‘It has a wide ranging syllabus, which not only provides a thorough coverage of technical accounting concepts, but also heavily focuses on practical applications, from risk management to investment analysis... not to mention worldwide recognition and strong member support.’


Now working in Treasury Market Risk, Sreekar relishes the responsibility his job brings. So what skills does a role in the Treasury require? ‘Accuracy and quality


of analysis, together with a driven and motivated attitude to ensure the firms risk limits are not breached’, explains Sreekar.


Sound like the role for you? Santander is a great place to develop a career, reckons Sreekar. ‘[My success] would not be possible without my colleagues, who are friendly, approachable and willing to help wherever they can,’ he says. ‘In addition to this, Santander provides great study opportunities, whether it be a language or professional course.’


In the future, Sreekar hopes to work internationally. ‘Travelling internationally to places like India is a passion of mine, so combining it with business would be perfect!’ he smiles. With the global status of the ACCA Qualification, it’s a goal that isn’t too far off for Sreekar.
