PKF Littlejohn, our member firm headquartered in London, is set to create up to 50 new jobs with the launch of a new financial services team.
The expansion into financial services will strengthen the offering of their Leeds office, which already provides restructuring and advisory services to clients in the region. The new team will offer external and internal audit services, as well as outsourcing, to financial services clients. Driving these ambitious growth plans forward will be PKF’s new financial services partner, Martin Watson, who joins PKF Littlejohn with years of experience of working with clients of all sizes within the financial services market.
The decision to invest in Leeds reflects the region’s dominant position as the UK’s leading financial services hub outside of London and is testament to the booming finance sector in the city. Martin Watson said, ‘Now is the right time to be investing in Yorkshire. You only need to look around to see the buzz in the region. But companies based in Leeds and beyond are telling us they want a credible alternative to the “Big Four” in the region; they are crying out for more choice. It's our goal to offer them that choice.’
James Sleight, a partner at PKF Littlejohn’s Leeds office, added, ‘Martin's appointment demonstrates PKF's commitment to the North of England. We know the area well and we understand the challenges and opportunities facing the region's businesses. That puts us in a strong position to help. … PKF Littlejohn is growing from a strong foundation and the region's financial services market is in great shape – it's an exciting time for all of us.
Martin continued, ‘There has never been a better time to think about joining PKF Littlejohn as we look to accelerate the next phase of development in Yorkshire. We’re actively looking to add talented people to our team at all levels. The region is booming, and it’s a great time to join a growing firm with ambitious plans.’
