A graduate in Theology from Durham University , I trained with PricewaterhouseCoopers in Sheffield.
PWC provided me with my enthusiasm for the accountancy sector and the foundations for a great network. It was a logical move to Hays where I received some of the best training in recruitment and the opportunity to work with some outstanding individuals. I initially recruited part-qualified accountants in the North West before moving to Yorkshire where my career took me to a level where I headed up the Senior Finance division for the UK and Ireland. Recognising that career progression within a corporate will often mean a move away from the more hands-on aspects of the job that I love, I moved to a privately invested, local recruitment business to grow it and to head up the accountancy specialism.
Setting up Pratap Partnership is the proudest achievement of my career. The fact that Nicola, Gillian, Elise and I have all worked for the same two employers beforehand says everything about the shared values and standards we have. We share the same values, standards and love for what we do – providing a top quality service to all of our clients and candidates.
