  • Having worked for datcom and Duncan & Toplis I really like how it is encouraged to progress internally and how easy the transition was made for me.


    Hannah Prangnell

    Marketing Co-Ordinator

  • Duncan & Toplis have supported me to achieve my potential. They gave me the extra support I needed when joining them to complete the final stage of my ACCA qualifications, which I had previously been completing as self-study. They have then provided continuous training both in house and through the Duncan & Toplis Academy to ensure I have had the skills to progress from Senior to Manager to Associate Director.


    Rachel Barrett

    Associate Director

  • Since joining Duncan & Toplis straight from university, I have been provided with all the training and support I have needed to progress with the firm. I have now been with the company for 11 years and would definitely recommend Duncan & Toplis as a place to grow your career.


    Mark Foster


  • I joined Duncan & Toplis straight from university 14 years ago now. From being a new trainee I have been encouraged, pushed forward and supported in both my professional qualifications and latterly with management, people and business development skills. I have moved offices and progressed to director in that time and love the variety of clients and work I get to be involved with and now seeing the management of a large business in its own right. There is every opportunity you could need within the business.

  • I joined Duncan & Toplis in June 2017 and although I enjoyed working for the previous firm I was at I would never of said I was proud to work for them, however being at Duncan & Toplis is both enjoyable and gives me a sense of pride to be part of a well-respected firm that is forward thinking and provides great opportunities to their employees.
