A leading Worcestershire accountancy practice is celebrating its very own gold triumph in Olympic year.
Ormerod Rutter has achieved ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) approved employer gold status, which acknowledges the high standards of training and development provided for its staff.
Anna Cross, the company’s HR manager, said: “We’re delighted to have been promoted from silver to gold status as the approved employer programme is a benchmark of good practice for companies around the world.
“Our employees are our most valuable asset and we want everyone to achieve their professional and creative potential.
“ACCA evaluates how we train our staff and the opportunities we give them in house so they can put the theory they learn at college into practice.
“Our trainees gain relevant experience of all departments, whether they deal with sole traders, partnerships, limited companies or auditing.”
Mrs Cross added: “It can take up to six years to qualify through ACCA, which is a big commitment both for us as a company and the individual. Ongoing support and mentoring are given throughout that time from both colleagues and managers.”
Ormerod Rutter currently has 17 trainees based at its offices in Droitwich Spa and is always happy to hear from young people interested in future accountancy apprenticeships. The practice also has offices in Worcester and Bromsgrove.
