A Nuneaton accountancy firm has strengthened its workforce with two new additions to its tax and client services teams.
Burgis & Bullock, which also has offices in Leamington, Stratford-upon-Avon and Rugby, welcomed Brandon Jacques and Morgan Hill to the team based at Eliot Park.
Brandon is AAT qualified and will be completing his ACCA studies during his time with the firm. He joins the company in a combined Account and Personal Tax Role.
Morgan is part way through her AAT studies and joins the Cloud and Client Services team, further strengthening the firm’s bookkeeping and Xero accounting offering.
The appointments, who are both from Nuneaton, are part of Burgis & Bullock’s continued commitment to providing development opportunities for young people in the area.
Brandon said: “It’s a big step up for me from my previous roles, but the work culture is great here and I’ve already seen how everyone supports each other during my short time with the firm.
“I’ve been in the profession since I was 17-year-old apprentice, now five years on I’m targeting completing my ACCA qualifications and take the next step in my career.
“It’s been challenging starting the position in the pandemic with working from home, particularly with having an eight-month-old at home, but everyone has been very supportive and I’m looking forward to progressing here.”
Morgan, who joins from another local practice, said: “I’ve built up good experience over the last couple of years working in practice and will continue to build that valuable experience at Burgis & Bullock.
“In my previous positions I’ve helped out in a range of departments, so I’m looking forward to focusing on working in this team and developing more expertise in the area.
“I’ve got one exam remaining in my Level 3 in my AAT and then the goal is the ACCA. I’m looking to keep improving my knowledge and this is a great firm to do that at.”
Sean Farnell, Partner at Burgis & Bullock, added: “We’re pleased to have brought Morgan and Brandon on board at our Nuneaton office, they both have a bright future in the industry and we hope will have an impact on the business for years to come.
“We have heard a lot from government about skills and supporting the development of young people in industry recently, so we’re delighted to be able to support both Brandon Jacques and Morgan Hill through the next stage of their training and development.
“The firm is always looking to provide opportunities for young people and we will continue to do so despite the pandemic and difficult economic circumstances.”
