A group of 12 new trainees have taken up posts with leading Forfar accountancy firm EQ Accountants LLP, the largest number ever recruited in one year.
This year’s intake, some of whom recently gathered at EQ’s Dundee office for training alongside other new talent, is a mix of University graduates, College and school leavers, with ages spanning from 18 to 33. Last year, seven new trainees were employed by the firm.
While providing opportunities in the local area, the investment in trainees will also help support the future growth of the firm, which now employs 108 staff and 16 Partners, a 20 per cent increase in staff since the firm’s merger last year.
Welcoming the group to EQ’s growing workforce, David Cameron, Managing Partner commented: “We are delighted to be investing in this new and dynamic group of young people, and welcome them to EQ. The training packages which we offer our graduates and trainees are unrivalled locally when it comes to the experience, training and funding which they benefit from. They also enjoy a truly rounded experience rather than being pigeon-holed too early, while gaining responsibility for a portfolio of clients early in their careers. We are all looking forward to working with our new colleagues, supporting them in their personal development, and helping them achieve their career ambitions”.
With offices in Forfar, Cupar, Dundee,and Glenrothes, EQ’s current turnover is over £6.5M.
