Careers in accountancy have equated to success for two young people from North Lincolnshire.
Abi Wilmore and Chris Driver have passed their professional examinations to become qualified chartered accountants at RNS, which has offices in Scunthorpe, Brigg and Barton.
It comes as the firm has also appointed three additional members of staff.
Chris, who joined RNS in July 2015, went to Winterton Comprehensive School, followed by Scunthorpe’s John Leggott College and graduated from Durham University with an economics degree shortly before joining RNS.
He, like Abi, passed the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales’ ACA exams.
Chris said: “I’m delighted to have passed my exams and would like to thank the partners for their ongoing support.”
Abi, who attended Huntliff School in Kirton Lindsey, started with the firm in 2013, shortly after leaving John Leggott College.
Abi was “really pleased” to have passed the ACA exam.
She said: “I am grateful for all the support the firm has given me while completing my exams.”
Brigg partners Karen Lyth and Adrian Ingleton congratulated both. “Abi and Chris are the latest in a long line of trainees to come through testing exams to become fully qualified chartered accountants,” they said. “The firm is proud of its record in providing top quality training, which benefits our clients as well as those undertaking it.
“We’re also pleased that Abi and Chris are local to the area, giving them additional knowledge, understanding and commitment.”
The three new recruits are trainee accountant Sam Neal, plus Georgia Bradley and Izzy Baddeley, who will work in business administration and reception.
Scunthorpe-born, Sam is a former student at St Bede’s School and John Leggott College.
Georgia went to Brumby School and North Lindsey College while former Frederick Gough School student Izzy was offered a permanent role after passing her NVQ as part of an apprenticeship.
