As the HNH Group is about to embark upon expansion in both the Deal Advisory and Business Advisory & Restructuring teams, I asked myself the question: “Why would someone want to join a boutique locally owned firm such HNH as opposed to gaining experience in the more traditional big four accountancy firm environment?”
Rather than just brain dumping, I thought no better place to start than to ask the existing HNH team for their views. A sample of some of the responses I received are:
There were many more comments but based on the above, the key messages which emerge in relation to working in our boutique business are:
1: If you want autonomy, diversity and full exposure to all aspects of the business early in your career, HNH provides a good opportunity to do this.
2: Self-starters with initiative and passion have the opportunity to thrive in a boutique environment such as HNH.
3: HNH is a young, owner-managed business with pride in its culture of work hard, play hard and don’t be sitting around the office just to be seen in the office.
4: We might not give the best holidays in the market place but we are not bureaucratic and can be flexible where possible.
5: HNH is dynamic. No fresh ideas are dismissed and we encourage the team to opine on all aspects of the business as we need to continually improve what we do.
6: At HNH, we are proud of our brand and we want to continue to develop it, our service lines, geographical reach and fundamentally the quality of work we deliver to our clients.
7: At HNH, we are proud of our people and our team culture. We want people to develop, have fun and enjoy their careers.
8: HNH tries to incentivise each member of the team financially for team success.
