UHY Hacker Young has announced the appointment of three new university graduates to its audits and accounts team in its Nottingham office.
According to the firm, the appointments form part of UHY’s commitment to employing local and upcoming talent in the region.
Luke Wilson, Jack Lee and Alexander Nowab have all joined the firm as chartered accountant trainees. They are supporting the firm as it continues to grow to meet the increased demand for its corporate and private financial client services.
Wilson joined after graduating with a degree in mathematics with statistics from the University of Nottingham. Additionally, Lee graduated in June 2021 with a first-class masters degree in chemistry from the University of Manchester.
The firm also said Nowab graduated from the University of York having studied accounting and business finance with management.
Wilson said: “I wanted to work at a firm that had a roster of well-known clients while being able to get to know everyone across a close-knit team. At UHY the firm is well-sized to achieve both aims.
“Working with lots of clients in different sectors means that the audit will be different each time. It gives me the opportunity to learn what sectors I like to work with, so that I may choose to specialise in them in the future.”
Nowab added: “I’m enjoying the level of responsibility and trust given to graduates at UHY. I feel very involved and challenged and like I’m making a difference. I appreciate the opportunity and know that this is a great start to my career.”
James Simmonds, partner at UHY Nottingham, said: “We’re delighted to have welcomed Luke, Jack and Alexander as our latest graduate trainees. Investing in future talent is so important, and as a business we are proud to have a regular stream of employment opportunities open to graduates – helping them to launch their careers at UHY.”
