More than 100 job seekers attended a recruitment event at leading East Midlands business advisory and accountancy firm PKF Cooper Parry.
The event was held at the company’s ‘Google-esque’ headquarters at East Midlands airport and involved a presentation from the CEO Ade Cheatham, office tours and various stands showcasing the business’s current and future opportunities.
CEO Ade Cheatham said he was delighted with the turnout at the event and encouraged by the level of skills and talent currently on offer in the region.
He said: “We were thrilled to see more than 100 people at our recruitment event. Our office was buzzing with people who were eager to learn more about the PKF Cooper Parry ethos and the opportunities on offer with us.
“We have recently announced our plans to open a Birmingham office, as well as our incredible people benefits such as unlimited holiday, flexible working hours, an email curfew between 7pm and 7am and lots more.”
“We met a lot of really interesting and promising candidates who expressed an interest in working with us and have already started receiving applications for a number of roles on offer.”
PKF Cooper Parry also launched 10 new internship places at the event, which will all start in August 2015.
Ade added: “Our 12 month internships are a fantastic opportunity for people looking to gain experience working in a variety of key business areas, providing exciting and challenging opportunities for personal and professional development.
“They will offer successful candidates the chance to sample working within our various teams and wide client base, while at the same time making a difference, and having fun.”
“We are on a mission to alter the view of accountancy as a dull profession to one full of dynamism and forward thinking individuals.
“People with drive and ambition are exactly what we are looking for and we were delighted to see so many promising personalities at our open day.”
Roles currently available at PKF Cooper Parry include the 10 internships, two positions in the restructuring team, three in the IT team, four in audit and three in the tax team as well as a number of AAT and ATT trainee positions.
