Mazars, the leading international tax, accountancy and advisory firm, is pleased to welcome this years’ UK intake of 195 trainees, drawn from 25 countries. Six of the new trainees join the Poole office of Mazars at its Merck House offices. Lauren Pringle, 22, Daniel Kellaway, 22, Maria Calikova, 24, and Mairee Payne, 19, all join as audit trainees. Thomas Marsh, 18, will be training as an accountant and corporate assistant, and Graham Pickles, 24, joins as a tax trainee.
The 195 new recruits, from school leavers to graduates, and those on industrial placements, will be working across a range of service lines including audit, tax, outsourcing, financial planning, consulting, forensic and investigation services, employee benefits and actuarial. Trainees will be joining teams across all of Mazars’ UK offices.
Trainees began their journey with Mazars’ annual “Ignite” welcome conference, and will receive intensive training as they begin their studies towards their professional qualifications including AAT, ACA, ACCA, ATT, CFAB, CII, ICAS, AFA and IIA. Their respective trainee programmes will enable them to work across a range of clients and to develop the range of skills that will set them up for long and successful careers.
Ian Wrightson, Partner and Head of People and Culture at Mazars, said: “On behalf of our 1,800 colleagues in the UK, I offer a warm welcome to our new trainees across the business. Each will have a fantastic opportunity to pursue a successful and fulfilling career path, including international assignments and the chance to work with a truly diverse mix of clients. I am sure that our new trainees will be valuable assets to the teams they join and to our clients, and make their time with Mazars count.”
Mazars was recently recognised as an outstanding employer for trainees, being ranked within the 100 best employers for school leavers in the UK.
