"We have experienced an exceptional run of new UK and international business wins in recent months"
Accounting and business advisory firm HURST has created five roles following a raft of new client wins.
HURST has added staff to its corporate finance, marketing and outsourced payroll teams as well as recruiting two graduates.
Amy Devereux has joined HURST Corporate Finance as a research executive. She was previously a corporate business analyst at KBS Corporate, which is part of AIM-listed K3 Capital Group.
Cezara Glynn has been recruited as digital marketing manager. Before joining HURST, Cezara was a newspaper reporter and over the past 10 years has held a variety of marketing roles on client and agency sides. She will be managing HURST’s increasingly important digital presence and overseeing a rebranding project for the firm.
Hollie Freeman has joined HURST as an executive in its expanding payroll team. She has moved from HR, employment law and health and safety consultancy Peninsula, and before that she worked in the client payroll division at BDO.
HURST’s latest graduate recruits are Nathan Jones, who has a degree in accounting and finance and a masters in financial technology, and Natasha Novakovic, who has a law degree.
Meanwhile Samantha Tingey has been promoted to manager in HURST’s business services team.
HURST partner and director of practice development Simon Brownbill said: “We have experienced an exceptional run of new UK and international business wins in recent months across sectors including manufacturing, engineering and wholesaling.
“As a result, we have needed to strengthen our teams to support new clients, as well as to help us to meet the expectations of existing ones.
“We received a large number of applicants for all of the new roles, and so we were in a good position to choose the very best candidates.
“Our clients are sophisticated, and we need people with the right skillsets to work with them combined with a positive, can-do approach that fits with our team ethos.
“We are delighted to welcome our five newcomers and are pleased to announce Samantha’s well-deserved promotion.
“It is gratifying to be in a position where we can support them all in developing their careers during such a period as we find ourselves in, which in turn comes from some of the region’s leading businesses seeking out HURST for support.
“Our continuing growth means we are currently recruiting for more senior roles across all disciplines as well as graduate positions.”
