About us:

A P Robinson and Co is a growing but well established firm of Chartered accountants with offices in both Grimsby and Barton-upon-Humber. The firm boasts an excellent reputation as well as a diverse range of clients both locally and nationally. The firm was originally set up by Andrew Robinson over 25 years ago. Andrew still manages the firm now along with 2 additional partners who both trained and qualified here and helped grow the business to what it is today. The firm has adopted a relaxed, caring culture that has adapted throughout the recent Covid-19 pandemic to become a more flexible, forward thinking and supportive employer.

A Day in the life:

The working day usually starts at 8:30am, with a chance to make a coffee and get settled in before this. From the start you will be trusted with preparing draft accounts for small businesses with support from a whole team of accountants. This will take up the majority of each day but no day is ever the same as you will have regular communication from clients needing assistance with queries as well as internal opportunities for learning. Every client is different and you will be trained on how to use a variety of software to meet their unique requirements and needs. Beyond accounts, you will also carry out book keeping, prepare VAT returns and help out with ad hoc administrative tasks.
