This is a very good and relevant thread.
So I started my practice 4 years back and very quickly, I needed help. I found it impossible to get any ICB trained employees (student or otherwise), even though I advertised on the ICB job section on the website. In the end I went to my local college and ended up recruiting AAT students (apprentices).
My practice has now 3 employees, all of which are AAT and all full time now.
I am now looking for a 4th, and would love to give an ICB student a chance, so if you are an ICB student and in North West London, contact me. However, I fear I will end up with another AAT qualified staff, as there is no easy way here on the site (or otherwise) of marrying growing ICB practice owners with ICB qualified students/members.
I have the same problem, I have a job listed on ICB Vacancies, however, have not received any enquiries. I am looking for one or two part time or full time to join our small team and grow with the practice but think I may well have to follow your lead Accountsforme and go to my local college for an AAT member, although I could do with one of them having more experience, in Xero preferably and payroll.
Any ICB members out there looking? Job is listed on the Vacancies section, Hampshire.
