The firm was also placed 20th in the Apprenticeships Top 100 Employers and awarded as having outstanding levels of workplace engagement, receiving 2-star accreditation in an independent survey conducted by Best Companies; an accreditation that reflects a wide range of workplace factors such as Personal Growth, Wellbeing and Leadership.

Kelly Flack, Assistant Manager in HR at Price Bailey comments:
At Price Bailey, we recognise the importance of career development in all roles and at all stages.
Trainees make up approximately 25% of our workforce and we provide those trainees with all-round accountancy experience. We also offer a range of formal internal and CPD training for non-accountancy roles such as those in HR, IT or Marketing.
Our commitment to ongoing development helps us engage and retain individuals who can then provide their expertise in mentoring our new trainees, as well as offer an exceptional standard of service to our clients.
We are delighted to be awarded Workforce Developer by Cambridge Chambers of Commerce and have our commitment to training and development recognised.
Michael Siviter, Managing Director & Co-founder at 3QHUB comments:
We are always looking to partner with professional service firms that place value on investing in the learning and development of their teams. Price Bailey are passionate about seeing their people develop, helping team members to reach their potential.
Their ‘’step-ahead’’ programmes provide team members with practical and structured training, helping them become more confident and enabling them to provide market leading service to their clients.
This award is well deserved and is testament to the hard work and dedication that the team has.
