“Alison Waterhouse joined umbrella.co.uk in February this year as a Key Account Manager. She has shown that she is very self-motivated and has quickly developed a fantastic ability to develop business.

In September we saw the end of the quarter and I am pleased to say she excelled by smashing her target.

Well done on a great quarter and winning September Employee of the Month!” Dexter Dyer, Sales Director.

A leading provider of accountancy and support services to professional contractors, freelancers and small/medium sized businesses has invested in new premises after outgrowing its former base. 

A recent Business Report has highlighted how Wilmslow is a town in boom. At PayMatters we would like to think we have contributed in some way to this.

Work well as part of a team as well as on your own initiative? You and everyone else I'm afraid.

We're recruiting across the board here at Umbrella Accountants and consequently I'm getting to read a lot of CV's. Some of them are clearly refined by efficient recruiters and then there are others telling me about how they spent 2 weeks on a paper round in 1983 as part of their 20 year career in accounting.

One thing that does appear on both direct CV's and those from a recruiter are those boilerplate phrases that are repeated so often they mean absolutely nothing. You know, just like the most standard one that appears in almost every CV and is in the title of this post. Others you may see far too often are "I am conscientious, hardworking and trustworthy", the amazing revelation that someone "Works well under pressure" or posesses that most rarest of skills - "can communicate at all levels".

Work Placement

Following a request from Mploy Solutions, Umbrella Accountants LLP have arranged to take on work placement a number of students from Kings School, Macclesfield  and Tytherington High School, Macclesfield for their work placement experience.
