Why choose a professional?

Across the professional landscape, from accountants to civil engineers, and of course through to banking, financial advice and insurance, being a qualified member of a Chartered body is an indicator of high standards of competence, knowledge and ethical behaviour.

Membership of a Chartered body means that an individual or organisation has committed to:

  • High levels of technical and professional knowledge and competence through professional qualifications

  • Keeping knowledge and skills up-to-date through continuing professional development

  • Adherence to a sector set code of professional ethics, conduct and values.
