Nine new hires at Wilson Field
Accountancy firm Wilson Field has announced nine new appointments, including a new insolvency practitioner.
Also joining the Sheffield office are managerial staff, as well as a number of administrative staff and two new apprentices, taking the firm’s total headcount to 86.
Nick Wilson, managing director at Wilson Field, said: “We have recruited across a number of areas to increase our administrative facilities and also to boost our front-line operators who are hands-on management for individual cases.
“These appointments come on the back of our nationwide office openings and are a direct result of the breadth of workload that we are managing across all of our divisions.
“The majority of our operative management is still conducted from Sheffield and so we need these additional hands to support the excellent work that the existing team is delivering from our headquarters, but we are still seeing strong levels of activity throughout the UK.”
