Young Chartered Star

2019 Young Chartered Star, Patrycja Jurkowska

Patricia Jurkowska-min

A young Polish Chartered Accountant has won the ‘Young Chartered Star’ 2019 competition and will represent the Irish Chartered Accountancy profession at the ‘One Young World’ conference in London later this year.

Patrycja Jurkowska will represent the Institute at the prestigious international conference from 22 – 25 October 2019, along with other representatives of the Chartered Accountants Worldwide network.

Patrycja, 33, from Poland, moved to Ireland at the age of 18 to improve her English while she worked as an au pair. Fourteen years later, she now works as an Operations Accountant with GOAL Global (International Humanitarian Aid Charity) and is the President of Junior Chamber International (JCI) Dublin.

To enter the competition, Patrycja wrote an article on her career and particularly impressed the judging panel with her activity as an advocate for the Chartered Accountancy qualification, her honest portrayal of her path to qualification, and her passion to help those less fortunate. The panel also noted her involvement with the Young Professionals Committee.
