ACCOUNTANTS CARRY OFF EMPLOYER OF THE YEAR TROPHY IN CHAMBER BUSINESS AWARDS
Chartered accountants Lovewell Blake have been crowned Employer of the Year 2019 in the Lowestoft & Waveney Chamber Business Awards – recognising their ‘stimulating and supportive work environment with opportunities for all staff to develop and progress’.
The firm, which has offices on Quay View Business Park in Lowestoft and Quay Street in Halesworth, were awarded the trophy by judges who were seeking ‘high staff satisfaction levels and a well-motivated, ambitious and integrated workforce’.
The firm received the prize at the annual awards ceremony, which took place at the Ivy House Hotel in Oulton Broad on Friday evening.
Lovewell Blake partner James Shipp, who is based at the firm’s Lowestoft office, said, “We are delighted to win this award, which confirms our position as an employer which makes great efforts to open up opportunities for our people, helps them develop meaningful and fulfilling careers, and creates a great place to work.
“We have received a number of accolades as an employer, including being named in the national Top 100 Employers for School and College Leavers in the School Leaver Awards (being placed in the Top Ten employers nationally in the Accounting and Professional Services sector) – but it is very pleasing to be recognised by our peers locally as well.”
Lovewell Blake employs a total of 302 staff across eight offices in Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.
