Burgis & Bullock has made a string of appointments as it expands following significant growth.
The firm, which has offices in Leamington, Nuneaton, Rugby and Stratford-upon-Avon, has made nine new appointments across its Leamington and Nuneaton offices.
It follows a busy 18 months for the accountancy firm as it has supported and guided clients through the pandemic.
Seven of the new appointments have joined the firm in trainee positions, as the company continues its commitment to developing young professionals.
Wende Hubbard, managing partner at Burgis & Bullock, said: “We have worked around the clock throughout the pandemic to ensure our clients have been supported during this incredibly difficult period for businesses.
“This support has seen us retain existing clients and attract a significant amount of new business, putting the firm in a position to expand the teams at our Leamington and Nuneaton offices.
“We are continuing to expand our apprenticeship and trainee programme. As a company, we are committed to developing our staff and providing training opportunities for young people starting their journey in accountancy.
“The firm places great importance on professional development too and we look forward to supporting our new senior-level staff with the next stage of their careers.
“These appointments are part of a wider growth strategy for Burgis & Bullock and we are working to further expand our offices across the region.”
Niamh Ford, Billie-Jo Kliner, Alexandra Holt and Sam Brindley have all joined the firm as audit trainees at Burgis & Bullock’s Leamington office.
Sam Hale has joined as accounts trainee in client services and Rishi Sharma as a graduate in the corporate tax division, both at the Leamington office.
Morgan Hill has also joined the Nuneaton office as accounts trainee in client services.
Niamh said: “This is my first position since graduating from Coventry University and while it has been strange starting virtually, I’ve learnt a lot so far and continue to work toward my ACCA qualification.
“Kate King is the Partner who works with me and she has been a great support. From the outset, I’ve been given responsibility which has helped my development and I’m looking forward to my future with the firm.”
The firm has also welcomed tax senior Umer Soomro to its personal tax team in Leamington and accounts senior Jenny Chrimes to the client services team at Nuneaton.
Umer, who joined from a large firm in the north west, added: “The variety of clients within the personal tax team has surprised me. There has been a lot of engagement with clients already and I’m pleased to be bringing my experience to the team.
“I’m still developing as a tax professional and we have a close-knit team here which is helping me to further develop my tax knowledge and progress in my career.”
