Working to help clients weather storm.

ACCOUNTANTS and business advisors BPU have announced three additions to their team.

Michelle Harris from Bridgend, who recently left Cardiff University with a first class honours degree, has joined the Cardiff firm's audit department under its graduate recruitment scheme. The firm assists recruits to study and qualify as chartered accountants while they work.

Managing partner Peter Umbleja said: "We are very pleased, as an independent chartered accountancy practice to be offering this arrangement.

"We have strong links with Cardiff University, and other establishments.

It means we attract the very brightest and the best new graduates who prefer to gain experience here working with local businesses, rather than necessarily with one of the big five firms."

Also joining the audit team is Katie O'Donnell who took a degree at Cardiff University. Katie, from Cardiff, is part qualified, and has joined BPU from another accountancy practice.

Meanwhile the tax department has been boosted with the arrival of experienced tax senior Emma Davies. Emma, who graduated at Swansea and is from Treharris, has worked for several years with a large international accountancy firm. She will deal with personal taxation.

Mr Umbleja said: "These appointments underpin our commitment to building a skilled team across all disciplines. We are working with clients to help them weather the current business climate, and emerge stronger and ready for the expected upturn."
