Robb Ferguson marks growth with record graduate recruitment
Chartered accountants firm Robb Ferguson has welcomed a record number of university graduates amid a period of significant growth.
The Glasgow-based firm, which has a history dating back to the 1880s, has recruited a total of five new ICAS trainees as it identifies new opportunities and builds on a series of significant business wins over the course of the year.
This further builds on five trainees, including four ICAS trainees, the firm hired in 2022. The firm has a current headcount of 50.
An influx of new Robb Ferguson clients – including a highly-regarded Scottish construction sector business, a fast-growing manufacturing company, a substantial leisure sector operator, a transport & logistics business and a media sector operator – have created a viable platform for meaningful expansion.
Andy Logan, the firm’s managing partner, said: “We are delighted to have been able to attract a cohort of such talented young people to form the core of the next generation of professionals within the firm.
“With the firm seeing growth of around 40% in the last 24 months, our new trainees are pivotal to our continued controlled growth ensuring we deliver outstanding service to clients, both longstanding and new.
“Our new trainees will benefit from genuine hands-on experience as they work towards their qualifications and as we continue to invest in training to develop the talented accountants of the future.
