Achieve YOUR potential with RPG Chartered Accountants
RPG is a well-established, independent firm of chartered accountants based in central Manchester. Our team of 80 people in Manchester provide accountancy services to a wide portfolio of businesses clients across a range of sectors; we also have a team of 15 in St Asaph in North Wales providing financial planning and payroll services. With this level of resource, our people are at the heart of everything we do. Our foremost objective is for all of our colleagues to achieve their potential.
More about RPG
We act for a wide variety of businesses across a range of sectors with turnovers ranging from £50,000 to over £600 million. Each business is unique and faces different challenges, and we pride ourselves on providing them with commercially focused advice. Our range of expertise enables us to be very confident in our ability to deliver a great service to our clients.
We offer a breadth of client services across our Business Service Group (accounts, bookkeeping, management accounts, digital / cloud services), Audit, Tax and Payroll, Business Recovery & Insolvency and well as Chartered Financial Planning for individuals and businesses. The client facing teams are supported by dedicated operations, people management, administration and marketing teams.
Technology is a key area of development for us and we are currently part way through an extensive technological transformation programme. This is allowing us to remove obstacles to efficient working, while enabling us to truly empower our people.
Working at RPG
RPG Chartered Accountants provide a friendly and professional working environment where we love to do an excellent job and going above-and-beyond the call of duty is second nature to us. Work-life balance, alongside supporting personal development, are at the centre of our being.
The training and development of our team is fundamental to us. We fully support our team members who are following ACA and ACCA training programmes and personal development plans are created for each team member as part of the annual appraisal process. These focus on the individual’s specific needs, career aspirations and goals; we always encourage and support progression within the firm. We also have more informal training sessions: ‘Learning Lunches: Really Positive Growth’,” with internal and guest speakers covering topical issues and sector specific news and updates. These sessions, along with an individual’s personal development plan, will help encourage team members to become commercially focused business advisers. Technology is key to the firm’s development so full tech training and support are also provided.
Having fun is also central to our ethos! We all keep in touch through monthly zoom social calls which include both offices and we have several major events each year. Our main social event is the the Big RPG Day Out which the last two years has been a day at Haydock Park Races; and an Away Day training session which incorporates team building.
You can see more about the RPG Grand Day Out here
You can see more about our Away Day training day here which involved discussions with guests Jennie Johnson, Founder and CEO of My First Five Years (MFFY) and Robert Levy Executive Partner at Kuits Solicitors.
We have regular events organised by the RPG social committee – you can see photos of these on the RPG Instagram account – and frequent activities during the year such as pumpkin carving for Halloween.
Well-being is of the utmost importance to us. We have external telephone health support available for everyone as part of our employment package as well as internal counselling and support. “Tea and Talk” events take place every month as well as regular lunchtime walks.
Everyone is welcome into the office every day and most people have their own dedicated desk (the only occasional exception being the audit team who are often at clients’ premises). Home working is allowed but everyone is expected to be in the office a minimum of 3 days per week unless they are with clients.
Our team is encouraged to ‘dress for their day’ which generally means casual clothing can be worn for office days but more formal office attire is required when seeing clients in the office or visiting their premises.
We are committed to equality of opportunity and to providing a service, and following practices which are free from unfair and unlawful discrimination. We actively support Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and make sure that our colleagues feel valued and are treated with dignity and respect. We value people as individuals with diverse opinions, cultures, lifestyles, and circumstances.
