Company Information

“WE'VE LEFT BEHIND the tired, dull, grey accountancy stereotype and created one of most forward-thinking firms out there,” proclaims business adviser PKF Cooper Parry’s mission statement. “We’re straight-talking and we say it how it is.”

A specialist in serving the owner-managed business sector, its headquarters are in Castle Donington, with offices in London and Birmingham. The forerunner business was founded in 1850 but there’s nothing Victorian about the way it functions. Chief executive officer Ade Cheetham presides over an operation that prides itself on being a place where the 391 people on the payroll can have fun. Perks include core working hours of 10.30am-3.30pm, allowing everyone flexible working.

A commitment to individual development sees learning start in the workplace but extend well beyond it, with coaching in life and relationship skills as well as health and fitness. Employees feel the experience they gain here is valuable for their future, an 84% positive score, ranking seventh on this question, and is good for their personal growth (84%).
