Promotions add up at Worcestershire accountancy company

Worcestershire based accountancy and tax firm, Ballards LLP, has recently made three promotions across its corporate and private client departments.

James Griffiths is stepping up to the role of Senior Audit Manager where he will lead a team working with large corporate clients across the region.

Adrian Sidaway, who will work alongside Mr Griffiths, has moved to the role of Audit Manager.

Tamara Shaw, who is both a Chartered Accountant and Chartered Tax Advisor, becomes Private Client Manager where she will provide high end tax advice and planning to individuals.

Ben Allman, Partner at Ballards LLP said, “Professional development and promoting from within is a key part of what we are about at Ballards. We take great joy in investing into people and watching them progress through their careers. Both Tamara and James joined the firm on our graduate programme and so it has been great to see their development. I would like to congratulate all three on their achievements and wish them luck in their new roles.”

Although the firm promotes from within, due to growth in recent years, the firm has made more than 20 new hires over the past 12 months taking headcount to over 100 and also has a number of key vacancies still to be filled.

Business Development Partner, Steven Jones said, “We have ambitious but realistic growth plans for the firm for the coming years, and this will require recruiting a number of staff going forward. We are always keen to hear from talented individuals who share in our passion for providing market leading advice and we encourage interested applicants to get in touch and find out more.”
