Inspiring Business by Sharing Success

Local accountancy firm expands its team

Nottingham-based accountancy firm Page Kirk has recently welcomed four new members of staff from local universities.

Three of the arrivals are joining the firm’s graduate scheme, while the other is undertaking a placement.

Bryn Luffman graduated from Nottingham Trent University with a degree in Accounting & Finance. The student, who already knows Page Kirk from an earlier placement, has returned to join the Accounts & Audit Department and study for his ACA qualification. Joining him in that quest will be Martin Cull, who has a degree in Natural Sciences from Nottingham University.

Bryn said:

“It is a privilege to return to Page Kirk after my placement year with the firm. I am looking forward to studying towards ACA qualification whilst also contributing knowledge that I have gained at university and putting it into practice.”

Martin commented:

“It feels great to start working for Page Kirk and throw myself into learning lots of new things that I can put into practice! I hope, first of all, to pass all my exams and following that start to enjoy my career as an accountant. I am excited to start studying towards the ACA qualification, as the bits of work I have assisted on so far have really interested me, and my studies will hopefully help me to understand more and enjoy all that I work on day to day.”

The third new joiner is Joshua Ruthven, who left Loughborough University with a degree in Mathematics & Economics. He is now studying towards the joint ACA-CTA qualification and joining Page Kirk’s Tax Department.

Joshua is enthusiastic about the new opportunity too:

“I am really excited to be a part of Page Kirk and start the next chapter of my life after university. I am looking forward to gaining first-hand experience working within tax and accounts. I chose the ACA/CTA qualification to be able to learn new key concepts and skills then at the same time being able to apply that knowledge in a professional environment. After studying for the qualification, I aim to be a fully-qualified tax professional at Page Kirk.”

Last, but not least, Michael Mottershead joined Page Kirk from Nottingham Trent University on a year-long placement. Michael said:

“I am delighted to be starting my job at Page Kirk, with it being such a well-known business at Nottingham Trent. I can’t wait to get started and hope I can contribute towards the company’s success, whilst learning all the important attributes needed for the future. After completing my degree, I hope to come back and pursue a career in the accounts and tax industry at Page Kirk.”

As a local business, Page Kirk feels it is important to support local universities – including Nottingham, Nottingham Trent and Loughborough – by encouraging their students to stay and work in the area.

Senior Partner John Wallis gave a warm welcome to all the new recruits.

“We are very pleased to have Bryn re-joining Page Kirk to complete his ACA qualification after his successful placement year,” he said.  “He showed a great work ethic and is very knowledgeable in the field. We are also excited to have three new members of the team, Martin joining our ACA graduate scheme, Joshua joining our ACA-CTA graduate scheme and Michael joining the firm on our placement scheme. We look forward to seeing them progress at Page Kirk.”
