    64 NEW CP ALLSTARS IN THE MAKING

    Each September is when our main intake of young people who are at the start of their careers join us on our training programme. This week sees the latest round of intake of new graduates, placement students and school leavers.

    We’re excited to welcome this latest intake of 64   future talent who are going to be the next generation of accountants and business advisers that will soon be working with our clients. They arrive mainly from schools, colleges and universities from across the Midlands. We also have a few who are changing their career path completely to start on the road to being a Chartered Accountant.

    We’ve always been ambitious about growth. And now we have investment from Waterland we’re targeting five-fold growth in the next five years. We’re committed to attracting and developing the best talent in the sector.

    Each year we attract more applications. This year builds on the 57 last year. 30% up from 2020.

    This year, we had 1400 applications. Larger than our entire 450-person team. All 64 who were successful will now take part in our Launchpad programme which starts with two weeks intensive induction.

    The new starters will be mentored by last year’s trainee intake, and then will do the same for next year’s students. The group will spend their time working in audit and business tax and where after a two-week induction on our culture and how we do things, they’ll begin working on real projects.

    Samm Honeybell, Early Careers Recruitment Lead said:

    “It’s fantastic to welcome this year’s new starters.  There were plenty of first day nerves on Tuesday, but they quickly developed into fun and laughter as they got to know each other and learnt more about CP.  Being able to help people achieve the opportunity they are striving for and then watch them grow and develop in their career is the definition of job satisfaction.”

    This pool of future talent will be based at the CP offices in Birmingham, Sky View and London.
