February began with the celebration of National Apprenticeship Week, as employers extolled the benefits of using and training apprentices.
As many of you know, our firm has a long and proud tradition of hiring apprentices – in fact, many of our managers and top people joined Thorne Widgery straight from school, including our CEO Daniel Crowther.
To maintain our connection to up and coming accountants, we kicked off the month by joining some of the region’s top up and coming professionals and apprentices at the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Group Training Association careers event, where we spoke with those interested in joining the accounting profession.
This was followed up by a visit to Whitecross School in Hereford for their career fair, where we helped students learn more about the benefits of working at a firm like ours.
Of course, we have also supported National Apprenticeship week locally on social media, sharing great comments from our current apprentices, with a view to attracting the next generation of accountants:
