Moving up – G+Et Promoted!

We would like to congratulate our audit staff on their recent promotions to:

Technical & Innovations Director – Alex Hird

Senior Audit Managers – Chris Woodroffe & Karen Simeson

Audit Managers – Caroline Cook, Luke Whittaker, Rebecca Dawson & Sam Bonser

At Garbutt + Elliott we have an excellent team of hard-working and committed individuals, and as a firm we encourage all of our staff to seek continued professional development through a regular appraisal and feedback process, in-house training sessions and offering external courses. We pride ourselves on having excellent staff retention and a really close-knit team and this is especially true within the audit department across both our York and Leeds offices.

It is no surprise therefore that all of our recent management upgrades trained at the firm and have risen ‘through the ranks’ to where they are now, showing our commitment to investing in our staff and creating a positive and sustainable working environment through a structured approach to development, flexible working arrangements, and regular team activities to make sure everyone feels appreciated and part of our Garbutt + Elliott team.

With a whopping combined total of 65 years working at Garbutt + Elliott, this also means that a number of our upgrades have now been working with the same clients for over 15 years in some capacity or another. This continuity is really important to us and allows us to create meaningful and lasting working relationships with our clients, as we are able to accumulate significant knowledge about their business and allows us to see with clarity where we can add value.

So a big congratulations to Alex, Chris, Karen, Caroline, Luke, Rebecca & Sam on your well-deserved promotions and thank you for all of your continued hard work and dedication to Garbutt + Elliott.
