The new recruits have joined across the firm’s Manchester, Preston, Blackpool, Lancaster and Kendal offices and will be part of its corporate services and tax teams.
The firm will now support them as they go through their training and qualifications, as well as helping them to experience working with clients.
Rebecca Coombes, HR director at MHA Moore and Smalley, said: “It’s been a tough time for those leaving education due to the pandemic, so we’re proud to be able to offer this opportunity for these young people to make a start in the profession and develop their career with us.
“We’ve had record interest in our trainee and apprentice positions this year and the quality of the candidates has been impressive. They represent the future of our firm, and we look forward to seeing them grow both professionally and personally.”
