We like to think we’re not your average accountants.

At Torr Waterfield we pride ourselves on steering away from the typical stereotype of ‘old boring accountants’.

Elbert Hubbard, the American writer, publisher, artist and philosopher is credited with this quote:

“The typical accountant is a man, past middle age, spare, wrinkled, intelligent, cold, passive, non-committal, with eyes like a cod-fish; polite in contact but at the same time unresponsive, calm and damnably composed as a concrete post or a plaster of Paris cast; a petrification with a heart of feldspar and without charm of the friendly germ, minus bowels, passion or sense of humour. Happily they never reproduce and all of them finally go to Hell” 

We think Elbert Hubbard is wrong!

For one, our team is certainly not dominated by middle aged men. We have an ever increasing team of 35+ people with male and female at an almost equal ratio. We have a mixed bag of ages including, yes, your middle aged man, but we have trainees and apprentices also. This summer we took on two apprentices in business administration and have had two new trainees join the accounts team recently.

We like to socialise at Torr Waterfield whether it be a cheeky pint in the pub on a Friday or one of our many team building activities. We aim to all go out together quarterly and have previously been to laser quest, virtual golf, held a bbq and most recently we went to Nottingham dog racing.  These activities really help our office work as a unit and allow staff to communicate with each other more than just on a day to day basis.

We love Leicester!

We’re also Leicester lovers, whether it is Leicester City Football Club or Leicester Tigers and even local bands like The Moderators. The team were thrilled that Leicester won the premier league and we celebrated by all attending the Parade and wearing blue in the office. When local band The Moderators perform it is always a date that goes in the diary for many of the team. Mark Cunnold is an avid follower and loves nothing more than having a good old mosh at their gigs.

On our website we have a meet the team section.  Click here and see which director used to get paid £10 a night to body bop and break-dance in a Blackpool nightclub in the summer?
