Sep 26, 2023 | DY News

DY have welcomed the final trainee of 2023 for their training programme, Freddie Whiles.

Five new starters have joined Dyke Yaxley Chartered Accountants and they will follow our programme of technical and practical training.

Lee Thomas, Molly Morgan, Alex Peterson and Sam Holwill are already working at our head office, and they have now been joined by Freddie Whiles who will be working initially in the payroll team.

The training will be co-ordinated by Human Resources Manager Keith Higgins, who said the trainees were the latest intake to benefit from the support and advice of experienced and knowledgeable colleagues.

“We are delighted to once again welcome a new group of trainees to the team, and we’re looking forward to working with them as they take the first steps on their career in accountancy.

“Their programme began with induction training, and once they have completed the course, the aim is for them to move forward to study for formal accountancy qualifications.”

  • Lee is a former Shrewsbury Sixth Form College student who lives in Much Wenlock and also attended Chester University.
  • Alex also studied at the sixth form college and lives in the county town.
  • Molly lives in Telford and she was a pupil at Haberdashers Adams’ Grammar School in Newport.
  • Sam is from Newtown where he studied at the local high school, and he graduated from Cardiff University.
  • Freddie is from Newport and attended Thomas Telford Sixth Form where he studied for a triple BTEC in sport.

Keith said:

“Training and apprenticeships are crucial to the success of our management team – in fact, five of our current directors – Managing Director Marie Bramwell, Helen Bruce, Mark Griffiths, Andrew Young and Hayley Price, all began their careers through our training scheme.

“We pride ourselves on the high standards we set for all our staff, including our trainees, and we believe that training is a vital part of our company structure that pays real dividends for our clients and the service they receive.”
