Behind the Scenes at ACRF: Meet Siddique

With the need for connection being more important than ever before, we’re pleased to share with you some behind-the-scenes action from the ACRF team. Meet Siddique Abu, ACRF’s Accountant.

“I have been with ACRF since 2014. As an accountant, my primary responsibilities are preparing financial and management accounts, budgeting and cash flow. As a Chartered Accountant, I also involved in the strategic development & financial performance analysis of the foundation.

I work within the executive team in ACRF reporting directly to the CEO. But working for ACRF has added a new dimension in my career because it gives me the opportunities to engage with world-class cancer researchers and collaborate with the cancer research institutes in person. The combination of my professional skill as an accountant and interpersonal relationship within the cancer research field make this job full of contentment and endless satisfaction.

I migrated from Bangladesh in 2007 and became an Australian in 2013; I have a young family with a three-and-a-half-year-old son. I love cooking and playing cricket. Every opportunity that we have to go out at the moment, I prepare a delicious traditional dish and carry a cricket set in my car boot. Playing with the little one at home nowadays is a big part of my leisure.”
