Clive Owen increases team by 10%

Many of the new recruits have been graduates, trainees studying AAT or ACCA, and qualified accountants

Clive Owen LLP, chartered accountants and business advisers, has increased its team by 10% during 2021.

With offices in Darlington, Durham and York, the firm has grown from 102 staff in January to 112 in September.

Many of the new recruits have been graduates, trainees studying AAT or ACCA, and qualified accountants, with roles created in audit and accounting, tax, IT, marketing, payroll, HR and administration.

The firm has faced challenges due to Covid-19 and have “invested in its staff”, introducing several mental health and wellbeing initiatives to support the teams working remotely and during their phased return to the offices. These initiatives have also helped the firm with recruitment.

Gary Ellis, managing partner at Clive Owen LLP, said: “The last 18 months have been a very difficult time for so many reasons, but it has been a privilege to work with such a dedicated and motivated group of people.

“It’s better that our new starters can now be in the office to integrate with the existing staff as they gradually return. Hopefully this will enable them to learn and develop as a part of an experienced team to facilitate the social aspect of being in a physical workplace”.

He added: “I’m proud to say that we have worked together as a team to drive the success of the firm during this period, and feel we have emerged in a strong position and created a significant number of new job opportunities across our offices.

“I am delighted to welcome all of our new starters and look forward to seeing their careers develop.”

Clive Owen LLP also has plans to open a fourth office this year in Middlesbrough, which will help them service their Teesside clients.
