DELOITTE has appointed 65 partners, marking the largest expansion of the firm's senior team in the last ten years.

The promotions, which bring the company's UK partner count to 966, took effect on 1 June and reflect growing confidence in the UK economy, Deloitte chief executive David Sproul said.

The first two quarters of 2014 saw "a sharp improvement in business confidence", Sproul said, with business leaders in large and small businesses "ready to invest in growth opportunities".

He added: "These promotions reflect our own firm's investment in the potential of a growing economy and our commitment to support our clients."

In addition to the 65 partner promotions, 3,000 people joined the firm in the last 12 months. Sproul said Deloitte plans to invest £30m in training and professional qualifications this year, equating to an average of more than £2,000 per employee.

Earlier this year, a Deloitte survey revealed the UK's largest companies are looking to invest up to £200bn in the next two years, with 80% of companies with £1bn-plus revenues planning to invest in the coming 12 months.
