HAVING spent a year-long placement within Meston Reid, Robert Gordon University (RGU) students Kyle Gordon and Gemma Spence are moving into their final year of studies.
The firm has already welcomed its next year-long RGU placement, third-year accounting and finance student Kendall Gibson. In addition, the practice has recently recruited two students for innovative apprenticeship roles. Having gained accountancy qualifications at North East Scotland College, Natasha Souter (HND) and Holly Gammack (HNC) are joining the team as part of the innovative Graduate Apprenticeship Scheme which sees students gain industry experience while initially working towards a degree and latterly a professional accountancy qualification.
Louise Smith, business services manager in the audit and accounts department, was the firm’s first student placement. She said: “I’m incredibly proud of the number of students we have been able to support over the years.”
The firm has accepted placement students from Robert Gordon University’s accountancy and finance degree in all but two of the past 20 years.
