Bishop Fleming has recruited 24 new trainees, bringing the total number to 30 over the last year.
The firm has increased its turnover by 12 percent to £22.3 million in the past 12 months, and grown its team to more than 330 employees. In addition, 12 of its existing employees recently qualified as chartered accountants.
Ian Smith, Bishop Fleming’s chair, said the firm’s growth “enables us to continually invest in new talented trainees who will grow with us to become our business advisers of the future”.
HR director, Barbara Wood, added: "Despite nervousness and uncertainty over the post-Brexit economy, we have seen a rapid growth in demand for our services across all sectors. While we are still actively recruiting, we also have a strong commitment to developing our own people."
Ms Wood continued: “The firm continues to innovate to reflect the changing market. In particular, the forthcoming digital tax revolution and Big Data analytics for audit require us to recruit talented people for the digital market place of the future."
Bishop Fleming provides accounting, tax, corporate, restructuring and advisory services to businesses and private wealth advice to individuals.
