Our latest issue has a celebratory air to it. We were delighted recently to announce the promotion of two new Partners and five new Directors. The promotions take place in the Truro, Plymouth, Torquay, Exeter and Taunton offices and bring the total partnership to 55 with the firm now employing over 700 staff across the South and South West. You can read more on page 4. Our staff have also been very busy studying for professional qualifications and I would like to also congratulate our team members who have recently qualified in their respective areas.
Investing in learning and development is at the heart of ensuring our firm provides you with the best expert advice and in this issue you can get the latest news and updates from your trusted advisers on pages 7-21.
We would also like to welcome Achievement Training Ltd to Your FC, as guest writer in this issue. With attitudes towards higher education changing, apprenticeships are becoming an increasingly popular career path and in their article they look at the benefits of apprenticeships and recruiting new staff into your business.
Our Exeter office relocated to larger premises on 9 April 2018.160 staff members moved to Centenary House, Peninsula Business Park, Exeter, just a stone’s throw from our current premises at Vantage Point on Pynes Hill. The newly refurbished office space has been renamed to reflect our upcoming 100th Birthday in 2019 and we are looking forward to welcoming clients, both existing and new to our new Exeter home.
We have a number of events planned through the spring and early summer aimed at keeping you up to date with the latest developments in various sectors and services. May will see a series of charity seminars and in June our Essential 6 monthly Financial Director updates take place.
