We are delighted to announce that they have been awarded ‘Training Team of the Year’ at the British Accountancy Awards 2014.

The prestigious awards evening took place on 25 November at The Brewery in the City of London and saw over 500 guests attend from accounting practices across the country to celebrate development and excellence within the profession. The evening was hosted by Sandi Toksvig OBE, Danish-British writer, presenter, comedian, actress and producer.

To achieve the ‘Training Team of the Year’ award, our team demonstrated excellence in their profession and were judged on four main criteria; professionalism, measurable success, innovation and being a role model. We were also runners-up on the night in the ‘Top 50 Audit Team of the Year’ category.

Nigel Fright, our Managing Partner commented, “I am delighted that we have received the top award in the ‘Training Team of the Year’ category at the British Accountancy Awards. One of our fundamental core values is ‘practice and personal development’ and through our fantastic training programme our staff have become trusted advisers to clients and helped them to achieve success in their chosen sectors and businesses. We always strive to help our staff achieve and extend their goals in terms of professional satisfaction, career progression, and personal development.

I would also like to take this opportunity to extend my thanks to Karen Thompson, Kreston Reeves’ Training Manager, who has been with the Firm for over 30 years and in this time has ensured all our staff have received the best quality training, tailored to the individual’s needs, in a friendly, supportive learning environment.

Through completing Kreston Reeves’ training programme myself, I have progressed from trainee accountant to the Firm’s Managing Partner which exemplifies the exciting professional journey that an award-winning training team can take you on.”

This is not the first year that we have been recognised at these awards and in 2013 Kreston Reeves were finalists in the ‘Best Employers’ category. In 2012 we were finalists in the ‘Mid Tier Firm’ and ‘Tax Award of the Year-Non Global Firm’ categories. In 2011 we also won the title of ‘Best Employer’ in a category backed by Accountancy Age and the Best Companies Group.
