GBD155. Going gig. Getting started as an independent finance professional’

In the next five years the GIG pool is forecast to take on as much as 20% of the workload at most financial institutions.

The rising prominence of the so-called 'gig' economy - and the increasing relevance of independent finance professionals (IFPs) - offers a fertile topic for this conversation. In the first of several podcasts about the 'gig' economy, we'll explore how the AICPA & CIMA will be supporting this growing sector with new resources and tools

Talking Points. 

  • What do we mean by "gig" economy?
  • What does it imply for accountants and finance professionals?
  • Who is attracted and why is it a viable career option?
  • How do our research findings illuminate AICPA & CIMA members' career ambitions in this context?

Our Guests.

  • Carl Peterson, CPA, is Vice President of Small Firms at the American Institute of CPAs. In this role, he serves as the small firm advocate and representative for the profession.
  • Rosie McKeown is Lead Manager and content strategist for AICPA & CIMA (UK).
