The people behind the company! Introducing the staff, our practices and our working culture.

The heritage of DPC Group Limited originated with Edwin Downward on February 9, 1943 who set up shop as a sole practitioner in Wellesley Street, Stoke-on-Trent.

Welcoming John Plumb in 1962 and Mike Colclough in 1963, the firm became known as Downward, Plumb and Colclough – later adopting the acronym DPC.

Over the course of its rich history (80-years celebrated in July 2023) DPC has gone from strength to strength embracing many changes and a commitment to constant innovation.

When computers were a fledgling industry, DPC took a chance by investing into new technology  by spending £3,500 on a revolutionary Logabax accounting machine in June 1967.

The investment enabled advanced accounting (at the time) for some of Staffordshire’s most prominent businesses. The efficiency in financial affairs resulted in many of these organisations achieving international success.

Since Edwin’s ‘accounting vision’ launched in 1943, the company has grown steadily to employ over 60 people today, making DPC one of Staffordshire’s largest accountancy practices.

We welcome people at all stages in their careers, from school leavers and recent graduates to experienced professionals.

We’re focused on attracting the best talent, putting people into the right roles and offering the best professional training and personal development to deliver a first class client service.

We offer fully funded and supported professional training at each stage of an accountancy/ audit/ tax career i.e. AAT, ACCA, ACA (ICAEW), ATT, or CTA. This is supplemented with an in-house mentor and Personal Development Plan.  

We offer structured career paths across a range of roles within the practice
