Accountancy firm bosses lay out ambitious growth plans

BOSSES at a Liverpool accountancy firm have laid out ambitious plans to double their headcount within the next 18 months. 

Kyzen Sports is the UK’s largest financial service provider for professional athletes and they specialise in giving tax and wealth management advice to footballers.

With hopes to appoint accountants, admin staff and social media superstars, co-founder and director Jack Mackreth says it should be a ‘dream come true’ for any footie-mad recruits. 

Jack, who enjoyed his own playing career representing the likes of Tranmere Rovers, Bury and Wrexham, said: “We want to find good people who understand football and will relish the thought of regular interactions with players. 

“As an office we’re all into our sports so it’s a great team to be a part of if you love the beautiful game.”

Jack co-founded Kyzen Sports with school pal George Mansfield in 2016 alongside his playing career. Now battling a potentially career-ending injury, he knows the importance of planning for life after football.

Jack said: “When I was still in school my dad pulled me to one side and told me I could play football but I needed to get my GCSEs first. 

“I ended up getting 9As and A*s. I also did three A levels, studying for them alongside my GCSEs. 

“My dad wanted me to have the option to go to university. I ended up having a playing career so whenever I was away from the North West I would be studying too.”

Jack’s commitment has extended to the firm and they now go into top football clubs to educate players on financial literacy.

They also work for a range of athletes and footballers across the top leagues.

Jack continued: “Young footballers need someone to hold their hand at times. You’re so desperate to be a footballer, that’s all you think about. You just want to play. Our aim is to help players to start planning for their life after football, while they also continue focusing on their career. 

“I don’t think many players think about the future so by the time they get to 31 and are released from their contracts it can be a real struggle.

“One of the reasons we’re doing so well is that alongside helping with tax returns and wealth management we also educate about budgeting and pensions.

“Our experience means that we know what footballers need and our team are trained to provide those services.” 

The company is based at Business First Centre on Goodlass Road and employs 18 members of staff. 

Jack said: “We’ve got really ambitious plans to double our staff within the next 18 months. We’re also proud to invest back into training our team.

“It’s an exciting time and we’re really looking forward to seeing what the future holds.”
