Our values


We treat people the way we want to be treated. We’re kind, warm and open-minded as it’s the first thing that connects us to the people around us and opens doors.


We live the numbers and are born problem solvers. We are thorough and resilient, and work hard to deliver the best solutions for our clients.


We are cognisant and assured of the financial laws, we are knowledgeable and confident to tackle any challenge with energy and positivity.


We dare to challenge the norm, the numbers and ourselves. Ideas and innovation are the brethren of
ambition. We are bold enough to ask the difficult questions and to stand tall to defend our decisions.


Being given a clients’ trust is not taken lightly, we embrace being responsible for our recommendations and own our decisions. Might sound like it should be a given but if we say it, we own it.

C career testimonial 2

I can not believe how much I have learnt

“After leaving university I knew I wanted a career in accounts and after interviewing at a few firms I chose Cottons because it was most inline with what I wanted for my career. I liked the people I met and how the training would be delivered. I have been here for over a year now and can not believe how much I have learnt in that time!”

Georgia Stewart – Graduate Accountant

C career testimonial

It’s exciting, challenging and rewarding in equal measure.

“I trained and qualified at Cottons then moved to a top 12 firm for 5 years to gain valuable experience, before returning in early 2022. Why? Because working at a large, growing independent firm, I get better visibility on the impact I make. Because I am more instrumental in decisions and change, it is easier to influence the firm’s direction. It’s exciting, challenging and rewarding in equal measure.”

Charles Hill – Director
