Hi Andre, it depends on the specific role to be honest. A number of the finance roles may require you to have a specific qualification, whereas others it may be much more focussed on specific experience. I would take an initial steer from the specific specification.

Thank you for your answer Jason. With a degree in Economics, a Post-graduate in Finance and 7+ years of working experience in Finance related activities (latest 4y years as Head of Finance), do you have any advice how should I start my career here? I see a lot of job positions require CIMA/ACCA qualifications and I don't have a chance to do it without a job.

My suggestion would be to pick the one or two roles that appeal and are most suitable to your background. It would certainly be worth making an application and in many circumstances the business will be willing to consider a candidate with valid experience even if they don't have qualifications they are hoping for. There are some roles though that will require specific qualifications, it would be down to the business to decided whether to take your application forward.
