Taking Stock - English ICA: Currying favour with E&Y?
There was a wry grin on the faces of the Ernst & Young party at last week’s Accountancy Age Awards. Not only had they walked off with the Big Five award but they also managed to come up with the top trainee for the English Institute, Jonathan Clark. Nothing unusual you might think until you remember that E&Y recently moved its training contract to the Scottish institute for all its young accountants. Of course it would be unfair for TS to suggest the English Institute dished out the award to curry favour with the Big Five firm, wouldn’t it?
