Safferys building team for the new generation of business advisors

The team at Saffery Champness Chartered Accountants in Bournemouth has expanded over the last year, with a particular recruitment focus on school leavers and graduates.

Bournemouth Office Partner Liz Brierley advised, “Our concentration on providing quality advice and service continues to attract new clients.  We have tended to recruit locally to satisfy requirements and have been delighted that many of our new starters have come from local education establishments that we have reached out to, such as Bournemouth University, Talbot Heath School and Parkstone Grammar School.

“We are proud that we are building a new generation of business advisors, giving our employees outstanding internal training and providing continual progression opportunities for all members of staff.  At Safferys in Bournemouth we have experienced very significant growth over the last 5 years, during which time we have seen our fee income increase by some 50%.  This has contributed to the continued national growth of Saffery Champness.”
