An independent accountancy firm has recruited 23 graduates, trainees and school leavers - boosting its stafforce to more than 300.

The new starters will train across five of BHP’s offices in Sheffield, Leeds, Cleckheaton, Chesterfield and York.

John Warner, managing partner at BHP, said: “Training the future talent of the industry is something we always take very seriously and invest heavily in. We’re delighted to welcome all these new starters into our teams. We are also very excited to be launching our new higher apprenticeship scheme, which offers school leavers the opportunity to gain a degree without going to university. This type of training has the potential to be very successful.”

The company’s audit and accounts teams have appointed nine graduates including four who return to BHP after completing successful placements within the firm. The teams have also recruited an Association of Accounting Technician level two apprentice, and two placement students. In addition, four part-qualified starters have been appointed to work across BHP’s audit, accounts and VAT departments.

The company’s specialist healthcare team, which provides accountancy services to medical practices, dental surgeries and locum GPs, is welcoming four Association of Accounting Technician level three apprentices. Three school leavers have joined under the certificate in finance, accounting and business higher apprenticeship scheme.

New recruits in the Sheffield office are:- Anna Beckett, Matt Haw, Ben Rapinet, James Dunn, Aaron Kilby, Lauren Fleet, Adam Moss, Tom Pierre, Ella Johnson, Matt Blakemore, Jordan Battersby and Stephen Bruce.
