What are the progression prospects?

Grant Franklin, Managing Principal: “The future of our firm will be grown from our pool of talented students. Students are a vital asset to us and are held in high regard by all staff members. I am living proof of this, starting my career as an ACA student with Hillier Hopkins.”

Alex Bottom, Audit Principal and Principal responsible for Students

“As head of the student team, my expectation of what a new recruit can deliver is set high. If you want to progress, you need to demonstrate what you can do. During your three year contract  we will gather feedback from Clients, Managers, peer groups and other Principals to assess your work, progress, personal talents and contribution to the firm. Progression can take many forms at Hillier Hopkins and we have no hesitation in rewarding where merited.

When we recruit into the student team we aren’t just looking for people who can pass exams. We aren’t just looking for people who fit in with us.
What we sift to try and find is the elusive nugget who is naturally capable of both those things yet possesses raw key aptitude for future advancement. Someone who can bring texture, depth and fizz.

If you are still wondering how progression may take shape, I too was an ACA student with Hillier Hopkins and I  am now an  Audit Principal for the Firm, I  head up the student group and I sit on the Board of Management.”

Jonathan Crisp, Tax Supervisor
"I joined the firm as a student in 2010 and qualified through ACA in August 2013.
Within nine months, trust was placed in me and I was given the opportunity to work as an assistant audit manager to develop my career. However, I decided audit was not my chosen path and that I wanted to pursue a career specialising in taxation. Hillier Hopkins were very supportive of my wishes and were more than happy to assist my development by funding study towards the Chartered Tax Advisor (CTA) qualification. My future with Hillier Hopkins is an exciting one and all stems from the firm’s willingness to invest in their staff."
