Work Effectively in Finance
This unit will help students to develop the professional skills and behaviours needed in the workplace. While this unit is set in the context of the finance function, these skills are transferable to many other working environments. Students will understand the work of the finance function and why that work is important to an organisation. They will understand that finance employees require more than numerical skills: they also need interpersonal and written communication skills. Students will learn the importance of being an effective employee and what this means, and how to work as part of a finance team. Students will be able to identify activities that develop current skills and knowledge, and those that will help them achieve future career aspirations. Students will understand how to ensure data security and the importance of maintaining confidentiality of information. Students will understand why corporate social responsibility is important and what actions individuals can take to ensure that they behave ethically and support sustainability.
