This month we achieved something we’re very pleased to announce. Following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with HBI Education, QX Limited has become the first finance and accounts outsourcing company to have plans in place for a solid resource of trained accountants to ensure they can deliver quality service to our growing client base.
The tie-up will see HBI International Education provide our existing accounting staff training on UK taxation, as well as provide classroom training to QX employees who wish to pursue an ACCA qualification. As part of the mutually beneficial arrangement, QX will also provide an opportunity to HBI students who are undergoing ACCA qualifications, to work as trainees on a part-time or full-time placement.
Joyce Njeri, Communications Manager for HBI Education, said, “Our two-pronged approach, i.e. an ACCA training course for QX employees and HBI student exchange programme, is an important tool to help companies like QX grow and scale their business faster. Our partnership with QX will help them offer a quick-fix solution to their clients who have in-house skills in short supply.”
Dishant Desai, Head of Operations for QXAS, said, “Together HBI and QX will give our clients an affordable means to tackle the staffing and training shortages that the UK faces today. I am very pleased as this is a one-of-a-kind partnership which will also give our existing staff an opportunity to get an ACCA qualification.”
This move follows hot-on-the-heels of the recent graduation of 15 students from the QXAS Training Academy which is making sure we have a steady supply of talented accountants as we take on more clients.
