About HURST Accountants

Hurst are a firm of accountants and business advisors. They are unlike any other accountants because they help people whose business means everything to them, people with the energy, ambition and whom live and breathe their business.

The firm's mission is 'to be the best firm in the North West in the £5m - £50m owner managed business market'. In setting this target, Hurst created a set of 6 core principles for everyone to follow each day: We change lives; We respect and value everyone; We work hard and play hard; We are in it together; We drive change; We always do the right thing.

Hurst know that their people are their biggest strength, so they always encourage personal development, promoting from within whenever they can. Newly qualified accountants go on a career enrichment programme with Hurst, including a month extra pay, a month off and a secondment abroad.

The firm are also keen to look after the local communities which they work in and give something back wherever and whenever they can. Each year, Hurst colleagues come together to shortlist some of the region's charities who are doing great things and put them to vote to decide on their charity of the year.
