Firm announces to increase business by a thousand people

A BIG FOUR firm plans to recuit 1,000 people to its advisory arm in response to growing client demand.

Ernst & Young, has announced plans to increase staff numbers in it’s advisory business and double the unit’s revenue.

The national campaign aims to add 1,000 people, most of whom will be recruited into regional hubs, the Manchester Evening News reported. E&Y plans to double the size of its Manchester advisory division to 60 over the next two years.

Partner Stephen Church, who has built the Big Four firm’s Manchester practice from ten to 25 people since he joined in February 2009, is charged with leading the campaign in the region, the newspaper said.

Church said: “We aim to add people at every level, from graduates through to partners. By 2012 we hope to have more than doubled the size of the team to 60, led by three partners and four directors.”

E&Y’s advisory arm provides advice on business risk, IT risk and performance improvement. In the north west, the team has clients in the public and private sectors spanning an area from Staffordshire to Cumbria. Growth for the division is being driven by increasing demand from companies looking to improve their financial, operational and IT performance following the recession.
