Cowgills bolsters team to support SME businesses
Business advisory and accountancy firm Cowgills has made a string of appointments, boosting the team with fourteen new hires across its offices in Bolton and Manchester.
New roles have been recruited across the business; key appointments include the promotion of Lisa Kershaw as head of people to spearhead the company’s recruitment drive as the firm continues to recruit for senior positions throughout the business. Lisa has worked for the firm for over 30 years and moves into this role to support the company’s growing number of colleagues.
The firm has also welcomed its first digital marketing manager, Damian Leonard and Charlotte Harrington has re-joined in a new role as head of finance, having previously worked with Cowgills prior to taking a career break, taking the total employee number to 195.
Commenting on the recruitment drive, head of people Lisa Kershaw said: “We’ve bolstered our team at every level to make sure we have the best people with the widest range of skills. The investment will ensure that we continue to provide our growing client base with first class business advice across the full spectrum of services from corporate finance, tax and audit, wealth planning and business recovery. The role of head of people is key to this and I’m incredibly proud of being a part of Cowgills. Having worked for the business for many years, I’ve seen a lot of changes including a massive 300% growth in the last ten years. The unique culture we have created continues to attract and retain superb talent and we are actively looking for additional new hires as we continue to support our growing list of clients.”
Managing partner Paul Stringer said: “Recruiting the best talent is fundamental to us being able to help our clients navigate through the coming months and we will continue to build our team and support our business growth ambitions with more strategic hires.”
Cowgills has invested heavily in recruiting the next generation of business leaders by offering highly competitive packages, unique career progression opportunities including the opportunity to launch and drive new sectors and areas, flexible working and benefits to encourage more people back into key roles after starting families.
Paul added: “We are competing with many of the country’s leading accountants and business advisors when it comes to recruitment, but the Cowgills down to earth approach, entrepreneurial ethos and culture continues to attract fantastic people to the firm.”
Today Cowgills is one of the region’s leading independent accountancy firms with offices in Bolton, Manchester, Liverpool and Ilkley.
