The annual award, which is run by the financial and accountancy training company Kaplan Financial, has been sponsored by professional recruitment specialists Pure for six years. It is given to trainees from the East of England who have shown outstanding qualities in their particular region when studying for their accountancy qualification during the previous year.

Richard Grimster, who has worked for Chelmsford based Baker Tilly Tax and Accounting Limited for the past 7 years, has spent the last two years studying for his ACA qualification and previously completed his AAT prior to winning the Kaplan Financial accolade.

Winner Richard said; “Kaplan Cambridge are lucky to have a really talented and experienced team of tutors across each part of the ACA syllabus. They provide the knowledge, skills and most importantly the confidence needed to pass the exams and so I’m humbled they have selected me, a product of their expertise, for this accolade”

In recognition of the award, Richard was presented with a Kindle courtesy of Pure. Jen Little, Recruitment Consultant at the Cambridge Branch of Pure Resourcing Solutions, commented: “The awards are an excellent way of rewarding the hard work necessary to achieve professional qualifications and we are really pleased to be involved in recognising new talent in the region.”
