Accounting and business advisory firm Hurst has strengthened its business services team with six appointments.
The firm has made two seniors appointments, as well as hiring four new graduates.
Robyn Vandesande and Lizzie Hill have joined the firm as seniors. Vandesande has joined Hurst from KJG in Manchester, while Hill has moved from Langricks Chartered Accountants, which has offices in Cheshire and West Yorkshire.
The trainee recruits are Daniel Bulman, Jack Deegan, Sam Green, and Bertie Watts.
Meanwhile Katie Waud and Ryan Tattler have been promoted to manager level.
The latest additions take the number of Hurst employees to 94, with the firm expecting its workforce to “top 100 in the coming months”.
Mike Jackson, head of HURST’s business services team, said: “We are seeing an exceptional period of growth across the practice, and within the business services team alone we have expanded our recurring clientbase by 25 per cent in the past 12 months.
“Katie and Ryan have worked tirelessly to help clients through the challenges of the
year, combining positivity with great leadership qualities. Their promotions are well-
deserved and reflect their fantastic contribution to the firm and our client base.
He added: “We work very hard to ensure the people who join us fit our culture. They must be
passionate about helping our clients to achieve their goals, as well as being ambitious for themselves and the firm as a whole. Robyn and Lizzie fit the bill.
“At the same time, we are delighted to welcome to the team our four graduate
recruits, who all came through a rigorous application process, and we look forward to
seeing them develop their careers with us.”
