A good objective to write down in the CV for a chartered accountant:

If you feel that it’s necessary to write one then it needs to be non-obvious and INTERESTING.

Don’t just write ‘Seeking to build a career as..’ or something along these lines.

Instead consider something like:

‘Interesting in becoming chartered and eventually moving into a board level environment at an FMCG over the next 2 decades.’

Now THAT shows vision.

Otherwise. Don’t put one in at all!
