Accountants, Bishop Fleming, has recruited 7 new trainees to match growth in the local economy.
Partner in Charge of Bishop Fleming in Bristol, Joe Scaife, commented: “With the local economy gathering pace, we have seen a rapid growth in demand for our services in particular audit. While we are still actively recruiting, we also have a strong commitment to developing our own people.”
He added: “The firm continues to grow and innovate to reflect the changing market. In particular, the forthcoming digital tax revolution led us to launch our new cloud-based Accounting Solutions package – so we need the right recruits for the digital marketplace of the future.”
In the past year, which saw the firm’s seven offices increase organic turnover by nearly 14%, Bishop Fleming’s Bristol office has boosted its team to keep pace with growing demand.
Bishop Fleming has taken on 35 new trainees in total so far this year – a record number – and it is still recruiting. The firm has also accepted 5 placement students who have joined marketing, tax and audit.
The new trainees are studying a mixture of audit, tax, accounting and payroll qualifications to be business advisers of the future.
