Specialist tax consultancy firm Bourne Business Consulting LLP has taken on several top graduates in order to boost its operation.
The company attracted nearly 200 applicants from high quality graduates following a high-profile campaign that included advertising with online graduate recruitment services and directly with universities.
After two assessment days where candidates took further tests and got a chance to meet people at all levels of the company, eight applicants were accepted into the company.
Ian Mackie, executive partner at Bourne, said: "Our intake of eight trainees was a 100 per cent increase on our previous recruitment exercises and we are delighted to have welcomed such high quality graduates to the team."
He added that it was "particularly pleasing" that several applicants were familiar with the company name as they "compete with the Big Four".
