INDEPENDENT chartered accountancy firm Ross Boyd CA, which expanded its team with eight new recruits last year, plans to hire 10 more staff in 2023 in various departments across the business as demand for its services accelerates.

Roles will be available for both chartered accountants and the technical team, as well as opportunities for recently graduated accountants to join the RBCA graduate programme, which offers advice and mentorship to help graduates achieve chartered accountant status and reach their full potential.

RBCA founder and managing director Ross Boyd said: “Having seen a surge in demand last year, we have taken all the necessary steps to ensure that we remain geared to offer the best possible support and guidance to owner-managed businesses throughout Northern Ireland.

“Our planned expansion is designed to support our clients’ requirements and ensure that we can strategically plan ahead to help them successfully navigate any challenges that 2023 may bring.”

He added: “Despite political instability and challenging economic conditions forecast for 2023, our development plan delivered 45 per cent growth in 2022 and we remain on target to deliver a further 25 per cent growth this year.

We are committed to recruiting the best talent available locally - both experienced hires and top graduates. These roles are opportunities for people who want to remain in Belfast and be proud to be part of a successful independent business born and built in Belfast.”

Earlier this month RBCA moved to new premises at Linen Hall Exchange. The office has been custom fitted out to create the most modern, flexible and sustainable working environment for the team, and crucially has the capacity to accommodate future planned expansion beyond 2023.

Chris McCracken, managing director of Linen Quarter BID, said, “We're delighted important businesses like RBCA recognise the benefits of working in the Linen Quarter, a historic and vibrant district with an eco-system of over 500 organisations, which has experienced particularly strong growth in technology, design, professional services and hospitality.”
