Seven is our lucky number!!

Seven new trainees have taken their first steps towards a career in accountancy by joining our in-house two-year training programme.

Working with our experienced team to develop their accountancy skills, the trainees will gain an invaluable insight into the industry through working in the company offices on a daily basis.

At the start of their careers are: Laura Henderson, Michael Gerrard, Holly Campbell, Ian Smith, Hannah Young, Alex Smith and Hollie Brookstein.

Human Resources Manager Keith Higgins said: “Our staff training and apprenticeship programmes have been a major success over the years. Trainees benefit from learning the ropes from our knowledgeable team and, at the same time, assisting with client work to give them invaluable practical experience.

“The new trainees in our Class of 2015 have completed their induction training and will now be assigned to work with various teams within our business to start their hands-on training.”

After they have completed their initial two-year training scheme, we hope the trainees will move forward and study for formal accountancy qualifications.

“We pride ourselves on our commitment and dedication to delivering customer service of the very highest quality, and this will be a key principle that our new trainees will need to follow,” said Keith.

“We’re looking forward to sharing our knowledge and skills with the new trainees as they start their journey to a new career.”

And the trainees are following a well-trodden path as five of the company’s current Directors – Marie Bramwell, Helen Bruce, Mark Griffiths, Andrew Young and Managing Director Laurie Riley – all began their careers by completing the Dyke Yaxley training scheme.
