Accountancy giant Deloitte has grown revenues across its business by 4% for the year ending May 31.

The firm turned over almost £4.5bn over the period, while distributable profit increased by 14% to £590m.

Growth for Deloitte in Yorkshire for the year ending 31 May 2021 is reported as 10% net revenue growth.

The firm’s Leeds office now employs 601 people of which 32 are partners and 57 directors.

This year, Deloitte in Yorkshire recruited one partner and promoted two people to partner and eleven to director.

Deloitte’s Leeds office has become the Northern hub for the firm’s in-house creative agency, 368, creating 20 new roles.

Stuart Cottee, practice senior partner for Yorkshire and the North East at Deloitte, said: “Our people are the stars of the show.

“The net revenue growth we’ve delivered in Yorkshire is down to their commitment and dedication – they have all worked tirelessly throughout this challenging period to provide the best support to our clients.

“As a firm we have made significant changes to our working practices which have added to the resilience of the business.

“Going forward the firm will continue to be at the forefront of technological changes and evolution through acquisition.

“We have invested in our people in the region with 13 senior promotions; 86 new appointments; and our new hybrid working model Deloitte Works, which gives our people the freedom and the trust to decide how work should work best for them, their team and our clients.

“The firm has continued to invest in the Yorkshire region with the launch of a new Northern hub for the Deloitte in-house creative agency, 368, which will create 50 new roles by the end of 2021.

“Another first for the practice is the Yorkshire Climate Action Coalition – a business-led group which aims, through collaboration, to help businesses define and accelerate their own pathways to NetZero, and at the same time help companies embrace the opportunities arising from the future green economy.

“Every one of us at Deloitte in Yorkshire is committed to the growth of the local economy, local business and the local community.”
