Moore Stephens enters Top 100 apprenticeship rankings at first attempt

Moore Stephens has been rated a ‘Top 100 Employer’ for apprenticeships, coming 68th in a ranking table that covers organisations of all sizes and across all sectors. The firm also ranked seventh in the accountancy/actuarial sector for 2017-18, placing it above some larger competitors.

This is the first year that Moore Stephens has taken part in the RateMyApprenticeship ranking. The table, now in its fourth year, is based on anonymous reviews from participants in work-based training schemes, including apprenticeships, school leaver programmes and gap-year schemes.

“We’re delighted to have entered straight into the Top 100,” says Lizzy Jones, Senior Resourcing Advisor for Early Careers. “This is an exciting result. The reviews are anonymous and provide open and honest opinions on the training programmes that employers run.”

Individuals review their employer on a number of factors, including the extent to which they have learnt new skills, whether they have enjoyed the programme, how valued they feel by the employer, how well organised or structured the programme is, the support provided, the salary package and the opportunities available outside work.

Trainees providing reviews of Moore Stephens were all taking part in a school leaver programme. They highlighted various strengths, including the ability to gain both technical and soft skills while serving clients, the support provided by our Learning & Development (L&D) team and other colleagues, and the sociable, friendly atmosphere. The reviewers gave the firm an average score of 8.7 out of 10, above the national average of 8.33.
 
Perhaps most telling is the fact that every Moore Stephens reviewer would recommend the firm to a friend. Explaining their reasons, one said: “Moore Stephens is a great firm not only for career progression but also for the people that make the firm.” Another highlighted “the well-rounded balance of studying, good social aspect and the opportunity to learn whilst on the job” and a third said Moore Stephens was a “great place to work in and offers a good platform to start/progress your career”. The reviews can be seen in full here on the RateMyApprenticeship website.

Building on the success of its school leaver programme, Moore Stephens has now launched a formal Level 4 apprenticeship scheme, enabling both school leavers and more experienced individuals to study for an accountancy or tax qualification while gaining valuable work experience. “We’ll be encouraging our new apprentices to rate their experiences for next year’s RateMyApprenticeship ranking,” Lizzy says. “It provides useful feedback to our internal and external tuition providers, the L&D team and the firm as a whole. It shows us what we are doing well, as well as any areas that we could look to improve. It’s also a great, impartial resource for anyone wanting to find a high quality apprenticeship scheme.”
