Following a “record” trainee year in 2021, a number of senior appointments and this week’s intake, Old Mill confirmed new hires across its four offices in Exeter, Melksham, Wells and Yeovil are up 34% on last year.
Amongst those who have joined include 10 trainee accountants who have come from various colleges, schools and universities across the UK.
As well as school leavers and university graduates, the firm has also welcomed Mia Caines, who joins as a trainee accountant after a varied career in equine in the UK and the USA, as well as Miles Beczkowski and Andrea Bowden, who are both qualified accountants.
Client manager Sarah Worrell has also been appointed, as well as Stephanie Lipton, a bookkeeper. Another new joiner is Matt Jeffery, whose previous role was as manager within financial services audit practice at PwC.
Ian Carlson, managing director at Old Mill, said: “I am delighted that Old Mill continues to buck the trend in terms of ongoing recruitment – we had a record trainee intake last year and are on course to beat that record this year.
“However, it isn’t just trainees, we continue to recruit at all levels, and indeed, during the pandemic we have recruited at senior levels, including directors and senior managers, and across a wide range of specialisms, including financial planning, tax and VAT.”
