GWA Staff News – Autumn 2021

As things move to a new ‘normal’ we are looking forward to welcoming our staff and clients safely back to our offices. And a pleasant challenge is finding space for our expanded workforce.

We are absolutely delighted to welcome the following people to the GWA team: Louise Hogg has started in our VAT & Bookkeeping team, Taylor Aldred, Hannah Bagley, Joshua Murdock, Isabella Seale and Chris Semple have all joined our Graduate CA Training scheme, Jay Baverstock has started his apprenticeship training in our IT department and Jamie McIntosh, Emily Patterson and Stephanie Rutherford and  have each taken up trainee positions within our Accounts and Tax departments.

Some of our existing staff have celebrated significant work anniversaries. Lynn Ritchie reached 30 years of service in May while Vicky Reid, Carol Lindsay and Donna Vincent have each been with us for 10 years. Most recently, Derek Simpson from our Tax Department clocked up an amazing 40 years. We sincerely thank each of them for their loyalty and dedication.

Finally, we are sending huge congratulations to our Head of IT, Neil Forrest, who recently took part in the National 3 Peaks Challenge. Competitors aim to climb each of the highest mountains in Scotland  (Ben Nevis), England (Scafell Pike) and Wales (Snowdon) all within 24 hours, including travel time. Not only was it an incredible personal achievement, Neil also raised £1450 in sponsorship for Cancer Research. Fantastic achievement Neil!

Global Market Commentary – May

Recent data has hinted at a divergence between the US and UK/EU economies, with signs of an economic slowdown in the States coinciding with Britain and Europe rebounding from a period of stagnant GDP growth. Having been neglected for several years post-Brexit, there is hope that UK stocks may finally prosper given a more favourable macroeconomic environment.
