BHP bring end-of-year cheer to staff with 70 promotions

16th December 2020

BHP Accountants, Yorkshire and Derbyshire’s leading accountancy firm, has recognised the incredible efforts of its hard-working staff with the promotion of 70 employees.

The appointments range across staff at different levels in BHP, including three directors, two senior managers, two managers, five assistant managers, 31 promotions to senior or semi-senior, as well as 22 assistant accountants at levels one and two.

These newly-skilled colleagues will use their growth in highly-skilled roles to help boost BHP’s teams across all departments in the business, including Tax, Finance, Corporate Finance, Audit and Financial Planning.

The announcement comes after BHP, which has offices in Sheffield, Leeds, York, Cleckheaton and Chesterfield, recently had its largest-ever intake of new starters - with 35 new appointments over summer.

Lisa Leighton, joint managing partner at BHP, said: “This year has been a challenging time for BHP as a business, but that hasn’t stopped our team finding ways to excel despite these difficult circumstances. We wanted to recognise these exceptional efforts.

“Our teams have grown in all new ways these past few months, with specialist skills and expertise, so we’re thrilled to be able to hold onto this talent and help them excel in this new chapter of their careers.”

Louise Allen, head of HR at BHP, added: “We aim to ensure that anyone who joins our firm has the necessary support and tools required to succeed.

“These individuals have proven themselves as an asset to BHP and our clients, and we’ll be here every step of the way to help them achieve great things in their new roles.”

BHP was ranked 84th by the Sunday Times in their 100 Best Companies to Work For list for the second year running. The hard-fought and nationally celebrated list, which is now in its 20th year, recognises the very best in employee engagement around the country.
