200 jobs created by North East energy firms who are expanding in lockdown
July 7, 2020
RMT Accountants & Business Advisors has taken on nine new recruits across all sectors of its business to help manage growing demand from clients old and new.
The independent Gosforth-based firm is scaling up on the back of a number of new business successes, as well as increasing demand for the services provided by each of its specialist teams.
And it is expecting to add several more new faces to its team over the coming months to support its continuing growth.
Frankie Miller, Ashleigh Fulbeck and Nicole Lam have all joined RMT’s specialist medical and healthcare accountancy division, which is acknowledged as one of the UK’s leading practices of its type and works with GPs, care homes and other healthcare professionals right across the country.
Dulcie Hakin, Matthew Robinson, Abbie Dixon, Leah Ramsey and Morgan Bulman-Hume are all now part of RMT’s audit & accounts team, whilst Gabriella Grant has joined the business in the role personal tax senior.
Dulcie Hakin, who holds a degree in accountancy from Sheffield Hallam University and completed her professional ACCA qualification earlier this year, says: “RMT has a really positive reputation in the North East financial sector, both for the quality of work on offer and for being a good employer.
“I’m very much enjoying being part of a very professional and supportive team that really knows its business and the assistance I’m getting towards developing my own skills is extremely useful.”
RMT provides the full range of financial and business advisory services through its accountancy, specialist tax, medical and healthcare, corporate finance and recovery & insolvency teams.
Founded over 60 years ago, it works with UK companies of all sizes both within and outside the North East, as well as a range of international clients.
Mike Pott, Managing Director at RMT, adds: “The business has been performing very well right through the year and we are putting the additional resources in place now that will help us keep growing through the rest of 2019 and beyond.
“Our Healthcare division now acts for well over 1,000 medical professionals right across the UK, while the recent advent of Making Tax Digital has seen businesses of all sizes looking for support and advice which help them meet their financial responsibilities under the new rules.
“We’re also increasingly taking on greater responsibility for clients’ business functions, such as outsourced accountancy services and technology solutions.
“Our new recruits bring a wide range of knowledge and experience with them, bolstering what is already a very strong, high-performing team, and we’ll be looking to grow the team still further over the coming months as the practice continues to expand.”
