Graduate Trainee Accountant / Tax Trainee

Starting a career in finance? We’ll make your job search less taxing. Forget the numbers game and lengthy application forms; we’ll put YOU in control.

At Old Mill, you’re not just a job title and a number; you’re our future. We measure job satisfaction by passion and potential, not by pounds.

Whether it’s kicking off a career journey in accountancy or tax we will help you find the right career path for you.

Because when it comes to both industry qualifications and vocational skills, we’ve got your back: we’ll fund them, to support your growth.

Your Future…

At Old Mill, finance isn’t just a robotic function, sat at a computer, number nit-picking an A-Z of Matrix-style spreadsheets.

It’s about strategy and entrepreneurial spirit. It’s the buzz from relationship building and client success. Achieving excellent client service is at the heart of everything that we do.

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.

Your future isn’t just in safe hands; it’s yours to create.

Your Home…

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

From cider country to cultural cities, you’ll be right at home whether you get your kicks from nightlife, food and drink, mountain biking, or countryside walks.

Whichever office you choose, an on-site social team will be on hand to keep you on your toes. Cocktail-making, off-roading, ping pong, table football. This is no dull 9-5. Work hard, play hard.

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.

Creativity, commitment, and accountability; these aren’t things to fear. With us, you’ll learn to embrace being open-minded, challenged, passionate, and helpful.

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…
