Pierce tells apprentice they’re hired

Lancashire-based accountancy and business advisory group. Pierce has promoted Layton Smalley to payroll assistant after completing his 18-month apprenticeship during National Apprenticeship Week.

Layton, 19, from Accrington completed his Business Administration qualification after working full-time in the payroll department since 2016.

Playing a key role in the department, Layton is responsible for the administration of the department, processing payrolls with the support of other team members and dealing with client queries.

Keen to continue his learning, Layton will now study for a Chartered Institute of Payroll Professions (CIPP) qualification to strengthen his skills further.

Layton said: “I would definitely recommend an apprenticeship to anyone looking to get into a career in payroll. You gain qualifications and work experience whilst getting your foot in the door of the industry.

“Everyone at Pierce has been so supportive and has provided me with a lot of advice and guidance. I’m not sure what my future career plans are, but I would like to develop my role and continue my learning here at Pierce.”

Lisa Kennery, payroll manager at Pierce, said: “Layton has worked so hard during his apprenticeship and his promotion is well deserved.

“It is very fitting that he completed his apprenticeship during National Apprenticeship Week. Layton has developed his core office skills enabling him to now concentrate and develop his technical payroll knowledge. Layton has a very bright career ahead of him and I can’t wait to see him continue to progress here at Pierce.”
