Lucas joins us from Big 4 professional services firm EY where he was a Manager within their audit and assurance team. Having joined the firm on their school leaver programme back in 2013, he qualified as a CA in 2018.
Over the last eight years in practice, Lucas has developed a deep understanding of the finance profession having worked on and managed a number of SME and listed engagements, predominately in the oil and gas and aviation services industry. He has strong experience in the complex dynamics of working within these environments and the nuances of the various types of positions that you find within a Group finance function and wider finance team. During his time at EY, he was also a Programme Manager for the flagship EY Connecting Emerging Leaders Network (CEL). CEL was an Aberdeen initiative which brought together future leaders in industry, banking, private equity and professional services throughout the year with the aim of developing essential leadership skills. Along with his excellent work with EY’s LGBT+ Unity network and as a current ICAS committee member, he brings a large professional network to the table.
Lucas will be based in our Dundee office and will focus on accounting roles within the Dundee and surrounding areas as well as having a Scottish wide focus on practice recruitment.
