Chris Connor, senior partner at RSM Robson Rhodes, said: ‘The professional services industry has been operating in difficult market conditions in the past year, but I’m delighted to say that RSM Robson Rhodes continues to buck the economic trends.ÿ

‘High quality people are at the core of our business and our ability top attract them is vital to our continued success. I am pleased that over the past 12 months, while competitors were shedding people, our staff levels are up 14%.’
