We support all the major accountancy bodies; ACA, ACCA, CIMA, and have successfully supported many students through their professional training qualifications. We also offer a rich curriculum of in-house and external learning which covers technical competencies and a broad range of ‘softer’ skills, such as personal impact, negotiation tactics, and building-resilience, to name just a few. This carefully crafted combination helps to create well rounded skill-sets within our team – creating the Finance professional demanded for today and for tomorrow.

Underpinned by state-of-the-art technology, for which we were the architects, engineers and implementation team, we continually drive operational improvements and efficiencies in everything we deliver – if you enjoy setting new standards in Finance then you’ve come to the right place.
