Graduate recruitment in 2020 has seen a sharp downturn, largely due to the impact Covid-19 is having on businesses across the UK. According to reports, it is estimated that 48% of students are leaving university without a role to step into.
With many companies looking to put their recruitment on hold, cautiously waiting to see what 2021 has in store, it doesn’t look like changing any time soon. Claritas Tax however, are bucking that trend and this week welcomed two new graduates to their highly successful graduate programme.
The tax specialists, who are based in both Birmingham and Manchester, pride themselves on their approach to recruiting and training graduates. Their graduate programme boasts an impressive 95% first time pass rate on ACA (Chartered Accountancy) and CTA (Chartered Tax Adviser) exams since their scheme began back in 2015.
Iain Wright, Partner at Claritas Tax commented: “We understand the importance of recruiting graduates and bringing them on the journey with us. Covid may have caused us to change the way new team members are brought on board, but there is no better learning approach than being hands on from day one.”
New recruits Mike Fahy and Roshan Paul are Claritas’ 7th and 8th graduates to join their impressive programme in the five years since it began. Before setting their sights on a career in tax, both completed Chemistry degrees at Manchester and Aston Universities.
Matthew Hodgson, Partner at Claritas Tax added: “Our graduates are part of the team from day one and we offer them a different approach to their learning, which is flexible to meet their needs. We welcome Mike and Roshan joining the team at Claritas.”
