Anderson Anderson & Brown (AAB), one of the leading independent firms of chartered accountants and business advisors in the UK, has announced the arrival of 31 new starts across its various training programmes. Over the next 12 months, the trainees will take up positions across its Apprenticeship, Student Placement, Payroll Academy and Graduate Programmes. AAB will also welcome 17 school work experience students, as well as college and university interns, bringing the total to the firm’s highest ever annual intake of 48.
Investing in and “growing their own” talent has always been a core element of AAB’s recruitment strategy. Each of its entry-level positions provides an opportunity for students looking to begin a career in accountancy and business specialisms to gain valuable hands-on experience with the benefit of learning from specialists across the firm’s wide-ranging services. In return, AAB gains new ideas, a fresh approach to different initiatives and the opportunity to mould potential future leaders of the business.
Karen Stewart, chief human resources officer at AAB, commented: “This is always an exciting time of year for the firm with so many new people beginning their careers with us. This year is particularly important with our highest trainee intake to date joining AAB in what is a challenging period of change, opportunity and growth.
“We work with each trainee to ensure that they gain an insightful experience while developing as an all-round business advisor, to provide our clients with the very best service wherever they are in the world.”
In addition to its training programmes, AAB engages with schools and universities to inform students about the many different career paths the firm offers.
