Local Accountants beat some of the UK’s largest businesses and Accountancy firms in the National ‘Top Employers’ survey

Armstrong Watson has been ranked number six in the UK in the ‘Top Employers for School & College Leavers Survey 2013/2014’.

Beating off strong competition from big businesses both in the accountancy sector such as Deloitte, PWC, and Grant Thornton, and the wider business economy such as Marks and Spencer, Santander and Jaguar Land Rover, Armstrong Watson was ranked 6th in the survey which reveals the top 20 employers for school and college leavers.

The Top Employers for School & College Leavers ranking is based on employee satisfaction surveys completed by school and college leavers who are currently taking part in school leaver programmes, Higher Apprenticeships and sponsored degree programmes in the UK.

Within each survey, school and college leavers are asked to rate and review their company, their role and their experiences so far. An average score and percentage is then calculated for each company.

Each survey participant is quizzed on a variety of topics, including: job satisfaction, skills development, training, career progression, salary and benefits, company culture, level of responsibility, working environment, team relationship and work-life balance.

Paul Dickson, Managing Partner at Armstrong Watson commented: “I think this is testament to our training program and the development that we provide to trainees that join Armstrong Watson giving them experience in working with our clients. We focus not only on becoming a great accountant but also on how we bring tangible benefits to the clients we work with by adding value to their business. I and the rest of our Partners are very proud of our training program and the experience it provides to the next generation”
