ACCA qualified accountant Petra Jackova, 34, joins the team from Enterprise Rent a Car where she was previously accounting supervisor for the North East of England.
Petra brings more than nine years of experience advising businesses and individuals.
TaxAssist Accountants Harrogate has also welcomed trainee Mark Paine, 21, who will be learning on the job for the next 12 months while studying to gain his AAT Accounting Technician qualifications at Harrogate College.
David Underwood who runs TaxAssist Accountants in Harrogate said:
“We are delighted to welcome Petra and Mark to the team.
“The partnership we have with Harrogate College has been an amazing success.
“Too often young people leave university or college with no real experience of working life, whereas apprenticeships allow them to train in their chosen career and also gain valuable work experience.
“I would highly recommend taking on apprentices to other small businesses. “
TaxAssist Accountants Harrogate is a local business, providing tax and accountancy advice and more than 1000 small businesses across the region.
