Accountancy firms 'not filling High Growth programme'
Accountancy News |
Accountancy practices which are looking to expand could benefit from joining the High Growth programme, according to a partner at one firm.
Chris Lane, from Kingston Smith, speaking to Accountancy Magazine, urged companies to join the government-subsidised programme after figures showed the scheme is struggling to fill its places.
In news which could interest people working in accountancy recruitment, he added the nine-month programme can help firms to survive the economic downturn and "power their way out of financial difficulty".
The scheme offers a £350,000 subsidy to firms in the capital from the London Development Agency, with additional support offered to larger accountancy practices.
Mr Lane told the publication: "The High Growth programme is a good scheme, and it helps entrepreneurs to go on a course to learn the bigger picture. This is valuable thinking time away from the coalface."
A recent study by the Kenexa Research Institute found that 85 per cent of staff at financial institutions understand d their employers' code of conduct.
