New apprentices enhance the DT team

JULY 2021

We have recently expanded our team by recruiting three Apprentice Trainees. This comes at a time when Apprenticeships have been highlighted as a key part of the UK’s Covid-19 recovery plans, after six out of ten employers stopped all new apprenticeships when coronavirus took hold in 2020.

At Davies Tracey we have a long history of recruiting apprentices and helping college leavers to enter their chosen careers, and so our Directors are particularly pleased to be able to offer not one, but three, such positions in this important year for businesses on Teesside and indeed across the UK.

Ray Priestman, Practice Manager, says:

“It’s important for us to offer these opportunities, but more than that, we have found that employing trainees has plenty of benefits for us too. As a forward-thinking practice, embracing the ideas and energy of young staff, and combining these with the wisdom and stability of our established team means that we can ensure we continue to offer a first-class service to our clients.”

As a full-service accountancy practice, we will help the new recruits to develop skills across all departments including payroll, bookkeeping, audits and accounts, whilst supporting them in gaining Kaplan Apprenticeship qualifications.

Trainees Rachel Kelly and Joseph Bartliff are enjoying their first weeks with us, with third recruit Elysse Middleton to follow.

Ray concludes:

“We look forward to welcoming these three to the team, to seeing our current staff using this opportunity to progress, and to making the improvements to the firm that will inevitably follow such successful recruitment.”
