HB Accountant has always had a passion for recruiting and developing young talent. This passion is rooted in our 100+ year history and is evidenced by 5 of our managers, including Karen, one of our Directors, all starting HB as part of a training scheme. Karen, Catherine, Karen, Colin, and Barrie, all former trainees and with over 131 combined years of HB experience between them, are giving back by training the next generation.
Accountants play a vital role in preventing serious crimes like human trafficking by being watchful and reporting suspicious financial activities. HB Accountants are serious about this responsibility. Strengthening our team and building a vigilant workforce is paramount. Continuous Professional Development (CPD) is a mandatory part of our commitment to professional ethics. We ensure our team stays well-informed by using resources such as the ICAEW‘s AML educational drama, “All Too Familiar.”
The HB team is so proud to once again be a named finalist in the Apprentice Champion category at the Inspiring Herts awards.
