Worthing and Gatwick-based chartered accountants, MHA Carpenter Box, have appointed their highest ever number of new trainees. 12 new trainees have recently been recruited, nine of whom have joined the firm’s Platinum Accredited programme on the road to the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) qualification. Two will be studying for the Institute of Chartered Accountants (ACA) qualification and one for a tax qualification with the Association of Tax Technicians (ATT).
Alexander Cracknell joined from the University of Glasgow, Angelika Niedzwiedzka from Bank University in Poznan, Poland, Alexander Kent from Canterbury Christ Church University, with Lukas Kourtis, Meghan Osbourne and Natasha Whitehead joining from the University of Chichester. Jessica Jackman, Natalie Smith, Samantha Veness and Will Uwins joined following graduation from Worthing College, Isabella Roozbehan from Chichester College and Huw John from Mill Hill County High School.
Angelika, Lukas and Alexander Kent will work from MHA Carpenter Box’s Gatwick office, while the remainder will be based at the firm’s HQ in Worthing.
MHA Carpenter Box Practice Director, Chris Coopey, welcomed the trainees on board, commenting: “Our task is to train the next generation of business advisers focussing their ability to use their accountancy, tax and audit skills to help our clients prosper.
“We have always aimed to give our students the best possible start to their careers which has been underlined by our accreditation as a Platinum employer, ACCA’s highest global standard of excellence.”
The new trainees will undertake a comprehensive in-house training programme working in the Business Services, Tax Services and Assurance and Advisory Groups at MHA Carpenter Box, as well as benefitting from knowledge sharing across MHA, the firm’s national association and Baker Tilly International, its global network.
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
