National “Best Employer” Listing For Top 40 Accountant

Worcester-based Bishop Fleming will go straight into the Sunday Times list of the “100 best companies to work for” on its first application.

Having been Britain’s first accountancy firm to win the “Investors in People” accreditation and an “outstanding” accreditation for “Investors in Customers”, Bishop Fleming has now secured a place in the Sunday Times “Top 100 Best Companies to Work For” list, due to be published on 28th February. On its first application for this accolade, Bishop Fleming has been awarded an “outstanding” rating.

Bishop Fleming’s Managing Partner, Matthew Lee, said: “Our ethos of nurturing our own people has been amply rewarded by successive monitoring by ‘Investors in People’, ‘Investors in Customers’, and now the Sunday Times ‘Top 100 best companies to work for.”

Meanwhile, the firm has boosted the size of its Bristol office with the acquisition of a local competitor. The acquisition sees a partner and 13 staff moving from Whyatt Pakeman’s Clifton address to Bishop Fleming’s Bristol office in Queen Square.

With offices in Bath, Bristol, Exeter, Plymouth, Torquay, Truro, and Worcester, the acquisition of Whyatt Pakeman expands the firm’s partnership to 29 and increases its staff to 310.

Bishop Fleming have twice been listed as Britain’s fastest growing accountancy firm. That growth, which saw 80 new staff appointed, took the firm to 36th position in the UK’s national league table of accountancy firms.
