Five new trainees are on the first step towards a career in accountancy after joining us on a two-year training scheme.
The new faces have been appointed by us here at Dyke Yaxley Chartered Accountants, in Shrewsbury, 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 in our offices in Shrewsbury on a daily basis.
At the start of their careers with us are: Ross Evans, Christopher Judge, and Nicole Groake. They have been joined by Joe Moore and Danielle Shimmons who are both beginning a year-long placement with us also.
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 and, at the same time, assisting with client work to give them invaluable practical experience.
“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.”
Ross will begin his training in the agriculture department, Christopher and Nicole will be joining the accounts department, and Joe and Danielle will work with the corporate team.
After they have completed their initial training programme, we hope the trainees will move forward and study for formal accountancy qualifications.
“A key principle for us is to deliver customer service of the very highest quality through our commitment and dedication, and this is one of the first lessons our new trainees will need to learn,” said Keith.
“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 trainees are following a well-trodden path too as five of our current directors – Marie Bramwell, Helen Bruce, Mark Griffiths, Andrew Young, and our Managing Director Laurie Riley all began their careers by completing the Dyke Yaxley training scheme.
