Forrester Boyd is one of the largest and most progressive independent chartered accountancy firms in the Lincolnshire and Humber region. This means that we can offer our trainee’s exposure to a wide range of experiences with different businesses of all sizes. The opportunities for the right candidates really are endless.
We have six offices based in Grimsby, Louth, Scunthorpe, Skegness, Beverley and Hull providing the perfect balance of market towns to busy city centres.
With such varied locations, we have a diverse client base too. From fishing to agriculture, from sole trader to multi-national corporations, from entrepreneur to enterprise, the mixture of clients that you could be working with are vast and exciting.
We are proud to have over 87 years’ worth of knowledge and expertise to facilitate the development of our teams. Many of the best local accountants have either trained with us or stayed with us. Nearly all of our partners have progressed through the ranks. In fact, 14 out of our current 17 partners, started with us on our training programme.
We firmly believe in developing our talent internally, meaning the sky really is the limit in terms of progression opportunities. A career in accounting is not a walk in the park though. The advice you give to a client and the decisions you make could make or break a business in all reality. However, just think of the satisfaction that you will get by helping that new business start-up earn their first million or by helping a business owner sell his business and embark on a wonderful retirement.
You could be that person with them every step of the way to help them achieve their goals and dreams.
We have a structured and fully supported training programme. With a current cohort of 32 trainees across our offices, you are never short of access to support and guidance from those who are going through the training process the same as you. All our staff whether seniors or partners are here to mentor and support our trainees. It is not just the technical knowledge that we teach you though. Any job in professional services requires a certain set of soft skills and we will help you to develop and improve these skills during your training programme. These skills include; communication, problem solving, self-motivation, teamwork, time management as well as a whole raft of other skills.
In 2016 we were awarded the national title of ‘Large practice of the year’ which recognised our commitment to staff by investing in both technical and soft skill training for all employees throughout the different stages of their careers.
Our mission is to deliver big firm expertise with local knowledge and personal service.
Our vision is to make a long-term difference to client success and goals by imagination, flexibility and ability to embrace continuous change.
Our ethos is to enrich the lives of our staff and our clients with a responsible and caring approach to improving the future.
We nurture our internal talent to encourage personal growth and upskilling, which in turn develops our business and the communities and industries in which we operate.
In addition to the training, our staff benefit from a great selection of benefits. These include flexible working, wellbeing seminars, employee assistance wellbeing support, employee recognition programmes and a bust social schedule to help you get to know your co-workers on a much more personal level.
So the opportunities for the right candidate at Forrester Boyd are endless. Are you ready to become a Forrester Boyd team player?
