The team has seen a 25% growth in staff this year and is focusing its efforts towards staff retention and updating its remuneration package on offer.
It said the expansion of UHY Hacker Young’s Manchester office aims to support the group’s overall growth strategy. Over the past year, the local practice has taken on a number of larger audit clients which has “driven the need for additional qualified auditors as well as more trainees”.
UHY Hacker Young has also been celebrating a raft of internal promotions with over 10% of staff being promoted in the last 12 months, which it said demonstrates the “firm’s focus on recognising the success and development of its staff”.
Recent promotions include Sarah Whalley from senior tax manager to director and Kimberly Simmons from senior audit manager to director.
Ryan Wear, partner at UHY Hacker Young Manchester, said: “Our successful growth strategy has been driven by our significant levels of recruitment both before and throughout lockdown.
“Ultimately, we want to ensure that as the firm grows, we always have the appropriate skills and capacity to service all of our clients and maintain the high standards they expect from us.”
He added: “We are only part way through our growth strategy but given the success that we have achieved to date, it’s clear there are some really exciting times ahead.”
David Kendrick, Equity partner at UHY Hacker Young Manchester, added: “The business has transformed significantly over the past decade and we are hugely excited about the future. Our strong team gives us a great foundation for further expansion moving forward.”
