Who's Who at HSC
In recent years HSC has expanded both its client base and range of accounting and business support services offered. Much of this is down to the ethos of the firm, which has always encouraged innovation and initiative, as well as being a happy place to work. We take pride in being a training office for Chartered and Certified Accountancy students as well as Accounting Technicians .
Our staff of almost sixty has been very stable over recent years, although we are always happy to see our graduates go on to greater things which in the recent past has included large City firms and positions abroad.
Our secretarial and support staff are mostly long-standing employees with a real and in depth understanding of client needs.
You are welcome to contact any of our partners or staff and to help you we begin with a brief outline of our senior management.
