The South West based Financial Planner has continued to expand the business despite the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Old Mill has continued to recruit into all levels of the business including school leavers, graduates, and experienced positions.
The new joiners will be supported by Old Mill’s training programme to qualify in their chosen fields and further develop their careers.
Ian Carlson, managing director at Old Mill, said he thinks Old Mill has remained in a strong position and able to recruit despite the disruption lockdown has brought for a number of reasons, but primarily because they have continued to do the basics well while adapting to remote working quickly.
He said: “Our whole reputation is built on the passion we have for supporting our clients together with the trust we build with them, and this means that when the world is in turmoil and our clients need us the most, they know they can rely on us to offer expert help, support, and advice.
“Throughout lockdown, we made sure we were available to clients to offer support whenever they needed it and updated our website daily, posting information around every Government announcement and change as well as movements in the markets, and explaining what it would mean for clients, and how it would affect them, their families and their businesses.
“The commitment of our people has been key throughout this time. They have worked tirelessly to embrace new ways of working, including helping our clients adapt to the use of video technology to hold meetings virtually. I am also hugely proud of the incredible levels of teamwork over the last few months, with colleagues always available to help each other out despite not being able to work in the same physical location as one another.
“Technology has also obviously been important. Our IT team were incredibly proactive and ensured that all staff had laptops and had been able to test working from home before the lockdown was imposed. This meant the transition to remote working was almost seamless and we were able to be there for our clients throughout.”
