Angelika, Lukas and Alexander Kent will work from MHA Carpenter Box’s Gatwick office, while the remainder will be based at the firm’s HQ in Worthing.

MHA Carpenter Box practice director, Chris Coopey, welcomed the trainees on board, commenting: “Our task is to train the next generation of business advisers focussing their ability to use their accountancy, tax and audit skills to help our clients prosper.

“We have always aimed to give our students the best possible start to their careers which has been underlined by our accreditation as a Platinum employer, ACCA’s highest global standard of excellence.”

The new trainees will undertake a comprehensive in-house training programme working in the Business Services, Tax Services and Assurance and Advisory Groups at MHA Carpenter Box, as well as benefitting from knowledge sharing across MHA, the firm’s national association and Baker Tilly International, its global network.
