With the most recent cohort induction occurring in parallel with the formulation of company values – Engage, Empower, Excel – there has been an emphasis upon the ways in which both the company and new graduates embody these values.

John Farnsworth, Corporate Finance Partner, highlighted this point:

“This year’s cohort aligns with PKF Smith Cooper’s ‘Excel’ value, being one of the strongest we’ve ever recruited. We look forward to working with all of them in developing their careers.”  

Through this recruitment and training process, graduates are introduced into the world of business and finance, engaging with clients and colleagues on a regular basis to learn the ropes and demonstrate the professional, transparent, and trustworthy environment created within PKF Smith Cooper.

All graduates are empowered to perform at the height of their potential through regular praise and constructive feedback, as well as being encouraged to develop productive relationships with clients and colleagues for personal development.
