Developing your career

Structured development from day 1

At HURST you will benefit from an industry leading structured development programme, outside any technical training you will receive. These sessions take place face to face at our stunning Stockport HQ or offsite. There are three pathways to choose from, if you want to take part:

  • Trainee to Senior
  • Senior to Manager
  • Manager to Partner

The sessions are led by highly experienced external trainers who only work with the country's leading professional services firms.

Our partnership with Vistage

We are the first accountancy firm headquartered in the north to launch a Vistage Inside programme for future leaders.

Vistage, with 45,000 members worldwide, is a global leader in personal development and advisory groups for CEOs, key executives and leadership teams, providing insight, fresh perspectives, peer advisory groups, coaching and mentoring.

The two-year Vistage Inside programme combines tailored workshops with speaker sessions, insight papers, webinars and one-to-one coaching.

Bespoke development opportunities

We offer a range of bespoke development opportunities for those who want it. Examples include immersion secondments, coaching and mentoring. We also offer international opportunities through our membership of PrimeGlobal where we offer colleagues "Workations" abroad, conference attendance, and international secondments.
