Andrew White, who has worked at the firm since 2016, said: ‘Working towards my Chartered Accountant status hasn’t been easy, as juggling full time work and study can be extremely demanding, however passing my final exams has made it all worth it. The support from HB&O throughout my period of study has been second to none as the company actively promotes flexible working and allow us time off to study.’

Mark Ashfield, Managing Director at HB&O added: ‘The unprecedented success that we have seen in these latest results are a testament to all of the hard work and commitment the students have put in over the past three years. We pride ourselves, at HB&O, on being a forward-thinking, modern accountancy firm and having a number of young Chartered Accountants with fresh ideas in our growing team is only going to fuel this.’
