A Fylde coast accountants is planning to double its workforce.
Danbro, which is planning to move to a refurbished former Land Registry building in Lytham, expects the jobs bonanza in the next three to five years, following expansion of the business after the move.
Group development director Rob Kenmare’s prediction comes as Danbro, which provides specialist accountancy and payroll services to more than 6,500 contractors and freelancers across the country, has just welcomed its 150th employee.
He said: “As we continue to grow to meet demand, we expect to have 300 employees within three to five years.
“This is the key driver for our move to Jubilee House, which will give our staff a great place to work, and ensure that they continue to give our clients the great customer service that they expect.”
The business started in a box room of the founders’ family home in Warton in 1999, a far cry from the new-look Jubilee House.
And in a nod to their humble beginnings, the founders, Damian and Helen Broughton, are planning to make some of the office space available to social enterprises, community concerns and start-up businesses.
Co-founder Helen Broughton, director of people and standards, who grew up in the area, said: “We want to give something back to the community,”
Latest signing, client accountant Stuart Clark, 36, is the first of a new wave of recruits joining Danbro as it targets new and emerging markets ahead of the transfer to Lytham.
Seventeen new jobs are currently available across a range of services including payroll, accountancy and business support.
The company says it is keen to promote payroll as a career choice, and offers in-house training.
Helen added: “We need the right people to join the Danbro family for the next chapter of our story.
“The right mindset is more important to us than the skill set.”
