Anthony Meakin - British Airways

Anthony Meakin - British Airways

Anthony Meakin is a CIMA student and works as a finance analyst at British Airways.
I chose to study CIMA as it is a dynamic, forward-thinking and commercially focused qualification that provides the skills and knowledge required to meet the needs of modern business. CIMA is a growing qualification that provides extensive career opportunities in industries worldwide and the flexibility to move into countless non-finance roles should my career develop in a different direction.
After graduating with a law degree, I looked at my future aspirations and where and how I wanted my career to develop. Finance appealed to me as it focuses on my key interests: working with numbers and people, being challenged on a daily basis, and having an influence and contribution that makes a difference.
I am currently a finance analyst on the finance leaders for business graduate programme at British Airways. My role is to offer comprehensive finance support across the strategy directorate, with a primary focus on supporting the alliances and network teams. It is extremely rewarding to know that I am making a valid and direct contribution to BA’s future business strategy. I am also fortunate to have fantastic travel opportunities, both for duty and leisure.
As accountants, we are often assumed to be boring, one-dimensional characters who find it hard to look beyond spreadsheets, but this could not be further from the truth. CIMA qualified management accountants play a vital role in businesses worldwide by providing the understanding and analysis required to make credible business decisions.
