A COMPANY based in the town centre is set to create 20 new roles as part of a huge recruitment drive.

Optionis Group, whose headquarters is on Centre Park, owns leading accountancy brands including Nixon Williams, SJD Accountancy and Parasol Group.

It is expanding its team in line with an ambitious growth strategy for 2022 and beyond.

The group, which provides premium, specialist tax and accountancy services for several thousand contractors and freelancers around the UK, is recruiting for accountancy roles, as well as positions within its sales and marketing function following rising demand.

Greet Brosens, chief sales officer at Optionis Group, said: “This is a really exciting time to be joining Optionis Group, as we continue to serve the tax and accountancy needs of the UK’s self-employed workforce.

“We’ve seen huge demand across our brands over the past 12 months following some industry changes, and it’s great to see so many contractors recognising the value of trustworthy, expert accountancy and payroll advice.

“To keep up with this growing demand, we’re delighted to be expanding our team and look forward to welcoming new talent from across the North West.”

Like many businesses, Optionis has focused on becoming a digital-first business in recent months with many of its staff working remotely, although its headquarters in Warrington continue to be serviced by staff daily.
