'We're with you wherever you are on your journey,' is the message from Chartered Accountants Albert Goodman to its clients.

And the Taunton-based company takes the same supportive approach to its team of more than 300 employees at its HQ and across offices in Bristol, Weston-Super-Mare, Yeovil and Weymouth.

Seventy per cent of its partners have risen through the ranks, showing the company's commitment to training and development 'from day one'.

The 157-year-old firm sees everyone as having the potential 'to lead a varied and challenging career' with six-monthly pay and promotion reviews.

And every staff member has an annual training needs analysis and bi-annual professional development discussions. There's also a yearly internal careers day where employees can learn about other roles in the company and there are opportunities to go on long or short secondments – even abroad.

At Albert Goodman, success isn't just judged on the income and profit employees generate but in how well they demonstrate the values – being collaborative, trustworthy, progressive and impactful. These are central to the company's career progression guide and are the attributes it expects its partners to have.

And the firm's not only focused on employees' next steps but also on giving them a reason to smile, from everyday treats such as vouchers to cheer up 'Blue Monday' to regular team socials.
