Cowgill Holloway recruits five rising stars
Bolton-based accountancy firm, Cowgill Holloway, has appointed five new university graduates to join its 2008 training programme, as part of the firm’s commitment to training the next tier of business advisers in the region.
The firm currently has 15 trainees working towards professional accountancy qualifications. This year’s recruits will complete a three year graduate training contract, with the opportunity to spend a further twelve months working in other practice areas such as corporate finance and business recovery.
Overseeing graduate recruitment is John Marshall, partner at Cowgill Holloway, who commented: “Despite the economic downturn, Cowgill Holloway is still in a strong position with a high demand for our services in the North West. We are committed to bringing in the best talent in the region to support incoming work and business for the firm.
“Our graduates are very important to the growth of the firm, and we are confident that our rigorous training programme will help each to gain the knowledge and experience needed to be advisers of the highest quality and future partners of tomorrow.”
Nick Bolton, a graduate from the University of Central Lancashire who achieved a first class degree in Accountancy and Business, is one of the firm’s newest additions. He commented: “Cowgill Holloway is a rapidly expanding accountancy firm that I hope to progress and develop quickly with. The firm places a strong emphasis on its graduate training programme, so I hope to be able to really add value here.”
Nick has been joined by Jenny Mathias, Sarah Atkins, Lucy Finn and Michael Barton.
Cowgill Holloway has already begun its recruitment process for the 2009 autumn graduate intake. The firm is currently ranked 15th in North West Business Insider’s league table of accountancy firms and 11th by Crain’s Manchester Business.
