Galloways Accounting has continued to invest and grow its team as planned despite the Coronavirus pandemic encouraging many businesses to put the brakes on recruitment. Headcount across the Brighton, Horsham, Haywards Heath and Uckfield offices has increased by nearly 10% since March equating to the recruitment of over 20 people despite the pandemic and lockdown.

This extra investment means that there are more colleagues able to offer support on specialist and complex areas, helping the firm to deliver the best quality advice and support to all its clients. The strategy of the firm is focused around putting the client first. To help it achieve that it plans to continue to invest in building the best team in Sussex and providing them with the best tools, training and working environment to help them succeed.

Galloways is a firm believer in nurturing young talent and so it is no surprise that included in this latest cohort of recruits are several new trainees, including both school leavers and graduates. These trainees will benefit from a comprehensive internal training and onboarding programme before being supported by Galloways through their ACA qualification.

Iain Campbell, CFO of Galloways, commented on the latest recruitment drive – “When many other firms have understandably pulled back on recruitment and investment during the last six months, we have seen the opportunity to continue our growth. These new additions help to further strengthen our teams, which in turn is allowing us to continue to offer the best advice and service to our growing client base when they need it most.
