    I don't think there is a list to choose from, but the person acting as your personal reference must be a professional accountant. My old supervisor (now the EUropean FInancial Controller of our company) has ACCA to his name so was able to be my referee.

    My HR Manager did it and she's not got ACCA or similar.

    It has to be someone in a more senior position to yourself that has direct knowledge of your work.

    I used the two accountants who audited the accounts for the two different companies I've worked for whilst studying. I decided that they were the people who reviewed what I did and could decide whether I was competent. They have also been my reference points if I've ever had any accounting queries, so could judge whether I asked sensible or "numpty" questions!!!!!

    ok, that is fine, thanks. i was worrying about it having to be someone who is a professional accountant.

    i will use my manager who has also been my supervisor on my simulations too.

    Thanks All

    Sorry about that taskey - I thought I had read it had to be professional, which is why I chose the person I did. Plus he did have knowledge of my work as well. Didn't mean to worry you with the professional accountant bit.
