Accountancy group Azets is planning to add 100 new roles across its North West network as it accelerates growth plans

The firm is investing in a fully digitised, mobile-enabled hybrid working environment.

As part of its overall plans the business wants to recruit a total of 650 new staff over the next 12 month.

In the North West there are plans to grow within the next five years by more than doubling revenues to approximately £45m through a combination of organic growth and compatible acquisitions creating around 100 jobs.

These roles span all job types from associates right through to partner.

Azets is recruiting across all levels in audit and assurance, accounts and advisory business services, tax, private clients, restructuring services and more.

As part of its growth plans, Azets is making a multimillion-pound investment on a fully digitised, mobile-enabled hybrid working environment, providing its people with more choice and the flexibility to work from anywhere.

Many of the firm’s existing offices in the North West will benefit from investment and remodelling to provide more agile and flexible working spaces.

In the North West the firm has six offices in Bolton, Lancaster, Manchester, Preston, Rossendale and Stockport.

David Travis, regional managing partner of Azets in the North West, said: “The workspace is changing rapidly and forever, as is the support needed by our clients.

“That’s why we’re investing in a hybrid working model and encouraging our people to work from anywhere. Digitisation is key to our investment strategy as clients want top quality advice and rapid access to information at any given time, and staff want the flexibility and freedom to integrate work with their other commitments.”
