AFA Accelerated
Growth Programme

With a wide range of clients in different industries, we add value to and build our employees’ skills by providing our team access to a diverse range of companies and roles across the industries we operate in.

Our responsibility as an employer, beyond offering attractive professional opportunities, is to cultivate the singularity and complementarity of each of our employees.

The AFA Accelerated Growth Programme aims to equip our employees with diverse and valuable finance experience in a short period of time. Our employees have the unique opportunity to work in varied industries and differing roles over a three- to six-month period through our outsourcing philosophy.

Why does the Accelerated Growth Programme work?

  • Employees are not just repeating the same task every month but on a continuous learning path.

  • Employees participate in a management development programme, supervised by an experienced director and senior manager to hone their skills.

  • The AFA plan is a transition from a steep learning curve to implementing insights and improving the process and eventually transition the improved function back to the client team.

  • The employee then moves on to the next client, more empowered and better experienced to take on the next challenge.

  • The feedback from employees has been overwhelming positive and that everyone should have this opportunity to accelerate their development and skill with AFA

Our experienced senior management team ensures that our clients receive the best standard of work by supervising each employee’s progress. Since entering the market, we have successfully delivered over 500 experienced finance resources into the economy, in roles ranging from accountants to financial managers and financial directors.
