YOUNG ACCOUNTANTS CONTINUE TO FORGE AHEAD
Here at Lithgow Perkins, we have a strong ethos of supporting our younger employees to develop their knowledge and expertise. As one of Harrogate’s oldest accountancy firms with a proud history, we are aware of the need to look to the next generation to ensure our success in the future.
So we are delighted that our younger employees continue to forge ahead with their careers, gaining the qualifications and experience they need to enable them to play important roles within the firm.
Tom Lowry and Tom Rhodes are well on their way to becoming qualified chartered accountants at Lithgow Perkins. Tom Lowry, 23, entered into a training contract with the firm at the beginning of September, after becoming AAT qualified in April and passing the ACA law exam in July.
Tom Rhodes, 23, passed his ACA professional stage in March and is awaiting the results of two exams he sat earlier this month, before undertaking a final case study in July next year.
The two Toms are lending their support to 20-year-old Matthew Hall, who has started the Foundation (Level 2) AAT exams. He already has his sights firmly set on Levels 3 and 4, and is looking forward to developing his career further at Lithgow Perkins.
Partner Joe Taylor, who joined the firm as a graduate, said Lithgow Perkins had a strong ethos of nurturing the younger generation of talent.
He added: “Our business has been a part of the local community for more than half a century. We recognise that, by giving our younger employees the opportunity to develop their careers with us, we can ensure our future in Harrogate for the next 50 years and beyond.”
