As a Graduate Trainee, you are the future of Old Mill, we aim to stay nimble, spot talent and nurture your skills to get the best out of you.

You don’t need to have studied Accountancy at University as long as you are curious, customer focused and passionate about learning, we can teach you the rest.

At Old Mill, you’re not just a job title and a number; you’re our future.

Your Future…

Not shy of responsibilities, you will gain hands-on experience from the get-go. With the perfect combination of learning on the job and gaining professional qualifications, all whilst surrounded by experts, you will be encouraged to carve a career path that motivates and excites you.

You’ll discover a culture where we empower individuals, embrace experience and support each other to reach our ambitions.

Supported through the ACA Qualification as part of the Level 7 apprenticeship you will gain the professional qualification, behaviours and skills required to be a successful Accountant.

Building your knowledge and your confidence from your studies and from the experts around you, you’ll be empowered to become a fully qualified accountant, a technical expert, and the future of our business. 

About you...

We need you to not only have a love for numbers but love problem solving, have great attention to detail, with a can-do attitude and business awareness.

Balancing the competing demands on your time, you can organise yourself and your workload. You are always asking questions, curious to find the best way of completing tasks and have a hunger to succeed.

In your studies or from the people around you, you will be continually learning so we need you to be committed, with an appetite to learn and an open mind. You will take ownership of your future and be empowered to carve your own path. Your future isn’t just in safe hands; it’s yours to create.

As a people focused profession, the client is at the centre of everything we do and we strive to deliver excellent client service, we need you to embrace this and be comfortable having open and honest conversations.

Your Home…

Ditch the Big City myth: thriving as an Accountant is not all about the London look. With offices in Exeter, Wells, Yeovil and Chippenham, why not go southwest?

With over 300 people and 5,000-plus clients, you’ll soak up knowledge and skills from colleagues and clients. There is plenty of expertise under our roof.

And from flexible working to a plethora of perks you can enjoy a genuine work-life balance. Happy employees and happy teams = productivity and success.

Because being happy at work boils down to a feeling… When you feel respected, you feel motivated; when you feel trusted, you feel empowered.

Reading between the lines, it’s that shared desire to learn, grow, and collaborate that keeps us all on the same page.

Your Perks…

You’ll love your job so much you’ll never want a holiday… Just kidding. You’ll get 25 days holiday plus bank holidays, and an extra day off for your birthday bash.

Old Mill employees are growing minds, not static functions – funding for professional qualifications and transferable skills training is provided vivaciously.

Working with numbers…, of course, you love a bargain – so you’ll enjoy the staff discounts on savings on mobile phones, utilities, clothes and more…
