As Rickard Luckin continues to invest in the next generation of talent to build and strengthen its team for the future, we are pleased to announce our ‘Class of 2021’, which this year consists of an incredible 12 people.

In order to strengthen our team and support our clients in realising their potential and achieving their aims, our new student intake has seen Charley Pritchard, Joe Green, Lucy Kearney, Macauley Semple, Maddie Taylor, Matthew Lloyd, Becky Dunbar, Adam Farmer, Richard Sims, Tom Harrison, Georgia Hicks, and Stephen Reeve all start their career journeys with us.

We are very much looking forward to watching our class of 2021 develop and grow, and excited about what they can bring to Rickard Luckin as we continue to become one of the largest specialist accountancy and tax advice firms in Essex. The desire to offer our clients an ever-broader range of knowledge and expertise is the reason behind our continuous drive to invite the very best people to join our team, and with that we welcome our Class of 2021 to the Rickard Luckin family.
