Exceptional Candidates Prove Too Good To Miss

Each year Mitchells Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers take an individual from Sheffield Hallam University and offer them a work placement for one year. Typically, the candidates have completed two years of a three-year degree, normally in Accounting and Finance, Business or Mathematics.

Upon completion of their placement they go back to university to finish their degree, with the option to return to be considered for a full-time roll. Mitchells then supports the candidate by fully funding them through their Chartered Accountancy exams (ICAEW).

This year’s potential group were so impressive that we decided to take on one placement and one graduate, whilst at the same time as referring a couple more to some of our clients. It was great to hear that one has recently been offered a full-time position.

Mitchells ethos has always been to support local talent into the workplace and news like this makes it all worthwhile.

“Mitchells provide an excellent placement scheme for Sheffield Hallam Students and most return to them on graduation.  It’s great that Mitchells work with Sheffield Hallam University to offer students such great opportunities and experience, we are very keen to work with them and any other local employers that would like to do the same.” (Celeste Thatcher, Sheffield Hallam University)
