Here's what our employees think

Adam Smith

I started at SB&P back in 2012 as an accounts assistant. Over the years I have worked my way up to accounts and audit manager, whilst gaining two Chartered qualifications and currently working towards a management qualification. A large part of being able to do this was the training and support provided by SB&P. From on the job training and mentoring from the partners and managers; being sent on numerous courses and seminars, through to the support of my colleagues in the wider team. Throughout my journey, SB&P has driven me to be better and given me opportunities to allow me to carve out a successful career.
