Seven new trainees have joined Broomfield & Alexander and will be based at offices in Cardiff, Newport and Swansea, where they will undergo a three-year training programme to become qualified chartered accountants.
The new roles will help support Broomfield & Alexander’s audit, tax and payroll services across the business, with the course being recognised by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT).
The programme allows trainees to work in a full-time role, where they will be mentored by senior staff but actively engage with the firms’ client base, including some of Wales’ top 100 companies. The trainees will also spend one day a week studying and take regular exams, alongside their day-to-day work.
“In 2016 we experienced a strong interest in our trainee scheme, which enabled us to not only identify the next generation of new talent, but fuel the fire of our ongoing growth plans,” says Ian Thomas, managing director of Broomfield & Alexander.
“Recruiting high quality staff at any level, whether it be directors or graduate trainees, is crucial to our business model as it ensures that every aspect of our service continues to meet the highest possible standards.”
