Seven new faces have taken their very first steps on the career ladder thanks to our two-year training scheme.
The new trainees were appointed by us in July this year and they will now follow a programme of technical and practical training.
Working with our experienced team to develop their accountancy skills, the trainees will gain an invaluable insight into the industry through working at our company offices on a daily basis.
At the start of their careers with us are: Mark Pimblett, Shan Marlow-Spalding, Lucy Cousins, Naomi Lloyd, Cian Iddison, and Jack Foulkes. They have been joined by Charlotte Astle-Rowe who is beginning a year-long placement with us.
Our 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 while assisting with client work to give them invaluable practical experience at the same time.
“This year’s new trainees have completed their induction training and have now been assigned to work with various teams within our business to start their hands-on training in our main office in Old Potts Way.”
After they have completed their initial training programme, we hope the trainees will move forward and study for formal accountancy qualifications.
“It’s always an incredibly exciting time to welcome new faces to the team, and to follow their progress as they start their journey to a new career. The whole Dyke Yaxley team would like to wish our newest colleagues all the very best for their future in the accountancy world.”
The trainees are following a well-trodden path too as five of our 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.
