Amongst the additions are Jenny Price, Asad Malik, Michelle Brown, Kaitlin Bowery and Leah Ramsey who all join the firm’s Business Services Department.

One of the 12 new recruits, private tax manager Laura Dickson, said: “It feels like a really exciting time to join Tait Walker and it’s been great getting to know the team. I’m looking forward to working in the private client team and with some great clients and local professional partnerships.”

“We’ve had a great summer of celebrating our 80th year as a firm and welcoming so many talented new faces to the team.
“Our recently expanded office space gives us a great opportunity to train and develop our people, take on more staff and provide opportunities for personal development and progression within the business.”
