The UK’s leading accountancy firm, The Accountancy Partnership, has launched a recruitment drive following continued growth across its business.
The Birkenhead-based company has expanded its headcount by 41% in the last 12 months, following an influx of new customers. The business has taken on 25 people in the last year and it is recruiting for a further 13 new accountancy positions.
The business also has plans to introduce a 35-hour work week without any impact on salary to give employees more work/life flexibility post-pandemic.
The Accountancy Partnership has a history of nurturing people, placing training, continuing professional development, and additional qualification opportunities at its core. Over the last 12 months, it has also created three prominent roles for its current staff to progress into, including head of marketing, assistant accounts manager and payroll manager.
The firm has recently launched a series of new progression pathways that will support payroll admin assistants to progress to payroll clerk whilst gaining valuable on-job experience and training. The company is also supporting 19 members of staff while they study towards additional industry-recognised qualifications, such as AAT, ACCA and CIPPs.
Following the post-pandemic return to the workplace, The Accountancy Partnership has invested in its Birkenhead headquarters, which has an on-site gym, a games room and separate break rooms. The business also sets out to look after the general wellbeing of staff, providing free nutritious lunches and smoothies, unlimited access to company-funded counselling sessions, and other perks such as fresh fruit. Staff also have the chance to join quarterly staff socials and partake in sporting and charity fundraising events throughout the year.
Lee Murphy, managing director at The Accountancy Partnership said:
“People are the most important asset in any business. We want to look after our team and provide the opportunities they need to develop and grow, in a comfortable and friendly environment. The company has experienced fantastic growth over the past 12 months, so it’s more important than ever that we do everything in our power to make our employees’ lives easier and more enjoyable in the workplace.
“We truly believe in giving people a platform to showcase their skills, and supporting them so they can grow and develop, and reach the next milestone in their careers. By providing the training and qualifications needed to reach the next stage in their development, we can continue to build the experience and knowledge in our workforce while retaining the culture we have developed through the years.
“We’re incredibly excited to continue to grow and welcome new clients and employees, and we plan to do further work with local schools, colleges, and graduates considering self-employment, in order to make their business and accounting lives easier when stepping on the ladder.”
The Accountancy Partnership is committed to job creation within the local community, equipping and uplifting people by providing them with the skills they need to succeed.
Beyond the workplace, the company has undertaken a variety of fundraising activities for local charities close to employees’ hearts, with greater community engagement planned for 2022.
