I have recently resigned from my role as financial manager due to concerns around how financial information was managed and reported.

I left amicably, having raised the issues, but am not sure how to best position why I left in interviews.

I worry that by saying it wasn’t the right environment and that my professional standards were compromised, I may undermine my ability to secure a job.

Our response: You need to judge your response on the basis of each interview and the individuals involved.

If asked for reasons for leaving, you should balance your integrity (section 110) while retaining confidentiality (section 140) and professional behaviour (section 150).

Ultimately you want to work in an environment that will not create threats to your obligations to the Code.

If an employer is put off by your commitment to ethical practice, reflect on whether you want to work with them.
