The organisers of the region’s largest finance awards are on the search for the North East’s ‘rising stars’ in the finance and accountancy sector.
Now in its eleventh year, the North East Accountancy Awards recognises excellence within the fields of finance, accounting and tax from all industry sectors operating in the North East. They are organised by event management company, Echo Events and supported by key industry associations and long term main partner Nigel Wright Recruitment.
Project manager, Claire Westgate explains “The North East Accountancy Awards are a fantastic opportunity to showcase the talent in our region and this year we want to make sure everyone has a chance to shine. With this in mind we’ve introduced a few new categories including ‘New Firm of the Year’ which is open to newly established accountancy or tax firms who have been running for five years or less. This is a great opportunity for new businesses to gain exposure, show how much they’ve grown and give us a glimpse of what we can expect from the future. We want to encourage a new generation of finance professionals to the event by supporting and celebrating new businesses.”
Award categories include Accounting Technician of the Year, Rising Star Accountant of the Year, Rising Star Tax Adviser of the Year, Accountant of the Year, Finance Director of the Year, Business Finance Team of the Year, Corporate Finance Deal of the Year, Public Services Finance Team of the Year, Tax Team of the Year, New Firm of the Year, Independent Accountancy Firm of the Year and National Accountancy Firm of the Year. There will also be the John Wall Award for Outstanding Achievement.
