On 25 September, IMA® (Institute of Management Accountants) and specialized employment broker Robert Half agreed on collaborating in the Netherlands to give controllers and management accountants a better position in the labor market.

Frédérique Bruggeman, managing director of Robert Half Netherlands, said of the collaboration: “CMA certification shows employers that the applicant is strategically skilled and can really contribute to the company's course as a finance professional. Our candidates also have access to the expertise of IMA, for example in the field of automation and integrated reporting. As a result, they are not only aware of the latest developments in the field but are also ready for the future.”

Alain Mulder, regional director IMA Europe, added: "Robert Half has an excellent view of the trends in the market. A good example is their attention to soft skills. Finance professionals must not only understand the figures, but they must also be able to explain them to other departments or the boardroom. This skill is an important part of CMA certification. Cooperation with Robert Half is mutually beneficial to both our organizations."
