A Newport-based accountancy firm has appointed additional trainees as it continues to grow its client base amid consecutive years of success.
HSJ Accountants has appointed Karen Yumol, Mollie Jones to its accounts department, and Bryony Hughes to its tax department, who join Elena Harris, Matt Jones and Demi Hurley on HSJ’s training programme.
Gareth Howell, a Partner at HSJ, spoke of the new appointments: “The last 12 months has been a successful period for the business in terms of new client wins as well as diversifying our offering as a firm. We launched our technology arm, HSJ Strato, last year and earlier this year our audit division, HSJ Audit, was boosted by the arrival of Andrew Hill. This has allowed us to improve on every aspect of our client’s journey.”
“We are extremely excited about bringing on the next generation of accountants and tax advisers, with Elena, Matt and Demi stepping up to the plate of senior team members in the very near future, and Karen, Mollie and Bryony making excellent progress already, I am confident they will soon follow in their footsteps. I am sure they all will have long and prosperous careers at HSJ, and who knows; we could be looking at the firms’ future partners”
All six trainees are from the local area and their appointments reflect HSJ’s involvement in the development of their ever growing team. HSJ’s commitment has also been recognised by the global body for professional accountants when awarded ACCA’s coveted Platinum Approved Employer status.
Gareth continued: “We want to develop our business from within and by investing in the future of our firm we will ensure that the good practice, hard work and ethics demonstrated by all of the team will be carried forward into future generations.”
