News: New Trainees at Carpenter Box

Posted on 17th September 2018

‘Platinum’ Accountancy Firm recruits 11 new trainees over the last 12 months

MHA Carpenter Box has appointed 11 new trainees over the past year to join their Audit and Business Services teams in both their Worthing and Gatwick offices. They will be joining either the firm’s Platinum Accredited programme on the road to the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) qualification or studying for the Institute of Chartered Accountants (ACA) qualification.

The Audit team in Worthing welcomes Emma Sparrow from the University of Sussex, Will Sixsmith from Aberystwyth University and Rachel Cook from the University of Wales Trinity Saint David. Dean Downes-Avery, Tabitha Nicholls and Michael Davis all from Worthing College, Daniel White from The Littlehampton Academy Sixth Form and Chloe Rempel from Chichester College have all joined the Worthing Business Services team.

In Gatwick, the Business Services team has welcomed Ben Roberts from Lancaster University, whilst the Audit team has been joined by Thagendra Bura from the University of Kent and Jack Gamon who was an estate agent for two years prior to joining MHA Carpenter Box.

MHA Carpenter Box Managing Partner, Alan Edwards, welcomed the new trainees on board, commenting: “Training the next generation of accountants, tax and business advisers is a responsibility we take very seriously and we have always invested heavily in emerging talent.

“We aim 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.

“I wish all our new trainees every success in their accountancy careers over the coming years.”

The new trainees will undertake a comprehensive in-house training programme at MHA Carpenter Box working with a team of qualified and experienced accountants, business advisers and auditors – many of whom started their careers at MHA Carpenter Box as trainees themselves! They will also benefit from knowledge sharing across MHA, the firm’s national association and Baker Tilly International, its global network.

Testimonials

"“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! ” "

Judi Arditi, Director

"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."

"“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”"

Bruce Millington, Manager
(Sutton Winson Ltd)

"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. "
