Annie Harris, Finance Manager at Brisbane Youth Service

CPA Program – CPA Australia (2018)

I was so delighted when I was accepted in the CPA Program scholarship because it is such a valuable opportunity. I have been in the industry over 10 years and this scholarship is enabling me to continue to my studies and achieve my professional goals. The professional knowledge and accounting skills from CPA Program have assisted me to be a well-equipped Finance Manager and handle various challenging issues in the sector. My current employer, Brisbane Youth Service, provide a wide range of support services to vulnerable young people in wide Brisbane areas. The services are; Housing, Health, Youth advocacy, Emergency relief and Support for young women and young families. As Finance Manager, I not only utilise a high level of accounting knowledge and skills from the CPA program in my daily work, but also apply management and analytical skills to lead the Finance Team to produce high quality financial reports that respond to the industry specific needs. I am passionate about working in the not-for-profit sector and the CPA Program scholarship has successfully provided me the essential skills to be able to perform and contribute to the sector.
