I couldn’t think of a better place for an aspiring accountant to work!

“I joined RPD after university and a stint in retail banking. The firm provided fantastic support in training and studying towards becoming a Chartered Accountant and gave me a platform to become a manager in a relatively short space of time.

RPD strikes a great balance between fun and professionalism by having a brilliant culture in (and out) the office – I couldn’t think of a better place for an aspiring accountant to work!”

RPD is a great place to work, learn and enjoy a career in accountancy

“I have enjoyed my journey at RPD so far and I’m looking forward to this continuing into the future. The work is incredibly rewarding, especially when you build up close client connections. The social side is also great as we have a terrific team who are all happy to help out and then enjoy time away from the office. RPD is a great place to work, learn and enjoy a career in accountancy.”
