    Speaking about the new additions to the team, Joanne Small, Audit & Assurance Partner at Baker Tilly Mooney Moore said: “It is a pleasure to have so many talented young professionals within our firm and we are continually impressed by the standard of graduates who join us. Stephanie, Peter, Philip, and Rudi have already shown great potential since they joined us last month and we wish them well as they spend their qualifying years with us. It is great to have Conal and Justin join us as apprentices also and we have no doubt our busy practice will provide an excellent introduction to the sector.”
