Accountancy firm welcomes largest-ever new employee intake

Yorkshire and Derbyshire accountancy firm BHP has bolstered its team with the largest annual intake of new starters in its history.

The company has appointed 16 graduates, 12 trainees and three year-long placements across its offices in Sheffield, Cleckheaton, Leeds, Chesterfield, and York.

The 31 new starters, who all join this month, will be strengthening the teams across Audit, Tax, Corporate Finance, Prosper and Financial Planning departments.

Lisa Leighton, Joint Managing Partner at BHP, said: “For the first time ever, we have welcomed 31 new starters, making this the largest ever recruitment boost for BHP.

“The graduates, trainees and placements will help strengthen the incredible work that we produce here at BHP but most importantly we want our new team members to feel happy and settled so that they can grow and flourish in their roles – this really is an exciting new chapter at BHP.”

Louise Allen, Head of HR at BHP, said: “At BHP we offer our new starters the opportunity to thrive as professionals, and by welcoming new faces we give every individual the chance to study, work, train and develop.

“These recent appointments showcase how we are growing as a business and making an impact on the Yorkshire economy.”

BHP was recently recognised by the Sunday Times in their 100 Best Companies to Work For list – now in its 19th year, the hard-fought and nationally-celebrated list recognises the very best in employee engagement around the country.

BHP was also recently awarded Mid-Tier Firm of the Year and Best Employer of the Year at the Yorkshire Accountancy Awards, and its tax and audit teams have been shortlisted in the British Accountancy Awards.

With more than 300 staff, including 33 partners, over the last 10 years BHP has increased turnover from £8m to over £22m.

BHP is in the top 35 accountancy firms in the UK and was also recently recognised with the Community Award at the Yorkshire Dealmakers Awards. The firm has five offices in Sheffield, Cleckheaton, Leeds, Chesterfield, and York.
