What does a career in audit hold at Johnston Carmichael?

Martin Bannerman, Audit Director in our Inverness team, talks to us about his JC Path, and why he chose us.

Read his story here

I started my JC Path in 2012, and in 2013 I was promoted to Partner and Head of Tax, leading a team of talented specialists. Whether at the forefront of client introductions or advising on transactions as part of the deal making process, we get close to the businesses we work with and learn so much every day.

Susie Walker, Partner and Head of Tax

I started my JC Path as a Financial Planner in 2001 and became Managing Director of Johnston Carmichael Wealth in 2013. We had feedback from a client recently who said Wealth had changed their lives. Hearing that your work has had such an impact on someone - you really can’t beat that feeling.
