RSM Tenon recruits 15 graduates to its East Midlands offices

Accountancy and business advisory firm RSM Tenon is strengthening both its Leicester and Nottingham locations with the appointments of 15 graduates, which span the audit, accounts, tax and outsourcing teams.

Eight graduates will work in the Leicester office. Ajmir Basra, Joseph Brett, Christian Lee, Ricky Sahota, Shakil Seedat and Zohaib Taj-Muhammed have been recruited to the audit team, while Richard Hawkins and Dusan Knezevic join the outsourcing and tax departments respectively.

In Nottingham, Varsha Barot, Joe Hessey, Kizzy Atkins, Nadege Ware, Chris Wilson and Kathryn Mason have been appointed to the audit team, and Amy Shaw will work in the accounts team.

Dilip Dattani, Senior Partner of RSM Tenon in the East Midlands, said: “RSM Tenon is committed to investing in the recruitment of the people which will lead the business in the future.

“I am pleased to welcome all 15 of our new recruits to both the Leicester and Nottingham offices and which them the best success.”

Alex Shacklock, director of talent at RSM Tenon, added: “’We are an ambitious business and we are delighted to have recruited a group with the same ambition, attitude and ability to help us achieve our goals. We recognise that there is masses of talent out there and graduates provide something different.

“Their fresh approaches, innovation and energy help to drive our business internally whilst improving our service to our clients. We have focused on recruiting people who want to have real impact in our market place, influence our business from day one and build a successful career with us.”

RSM Tenon has recruited a total of 89 graduates nationwide during its 2013 intake.

Earlier this month RSM Tenon was acquired by accountancy firm Baker Tilly, meaning the newly merged business is now the seventh largest firm of chartered accountants, tax and business advisers in the UK, with an annual turnover of £350m.

The deal will bring together the professional skills, strengths and expertise of both companies, and will significantly enhance its offering to the market as well as provide further opportunities for growth both nationally and internationally.
