Addressing urgent economic challenges: Support for members, students and the profession

AICPA & CIMA stand with the people of Ukraine and support governments in implementing economic and trade sanctions. We are deeply saddened by what is happening in Ukraine, and we hope for a swift and peaceful resolution.

Our priority is to provide high-level overviews, tools and resources to our members, students and all accounting and finance professionals. We will continue to monitor the situation and work around the clock to get you information as quickly as possible.

The ongoing conflict has resulted in the career prospects of Ukrainian finance professionals drastically suffering and job prospects are uncertain.

In light of the geopolitical unrest, it’s now free to post job postings that are suitable for displaced Ukrainian nationals in Hungary, Moldova, Poland, Ukraine and Slovakia using the promo code UKRAINE100.

How to post jobs: Visit and select the “Simple” job posting and include the keyword ‘Ukraine jobs’ anywhere in the description. Doing this will help candidates find your job postings.

This resource center will provide updates with FAQs, articles, links to vetted charities and information about the legal ramifications from sanctions, including membership renewals and testing.
