“We have a strong history of supporting professional development, evident from the firm’s ability to attract and retain the best personnel. We strive to support all our staff in achieving their full potential, and the health and wellbeing of our employees is top priority.”
Whitley Stimpson has been shortlisted for two awards relating to their investment in people this year already. The firm was placed in the Top 10 of the British Accountancy Awards 2019 for Best Employer, and Top 5 for the Accounting Excellence 2019 Investors in People award.

Other more local awards success this year includes one of our trainees achieving 1st in Corporate Reporting for the Thames Valley area, and 5th in the Thames Valley Advanced Stage Order of Merit 2018, putting Whitley Stimpson on the map with the likes of some of the bigger accountancy firms across the country.
