Here are their experiences of an apprenticeship at WMT:   

Hannah Jeans

Hannah Jeans

I joined WMT as a Level 4 CFAB apprentice in August 2023 after leaving Sixth Form and deciding that this was the best route into the accounting industry. As soon as I started at WMT, I was welcomed by all of the team, who showed a true interest in both my professional and personal development. By being involved in client work from the beginning, I have been able to apply my technical knowledge gained from the classroom to real scenarios and explore different aspects of accountancy work. I have found WMT to be an extremely welcoming environment filled with team members who are willing to assist you and helping make the work extremely fulfilling.

I joined WMT in February 2019 as a Level 7 apprentice, initially working in the Tronc team to process service charge payments and hone my technical skills. Transitioning to the audit and accounts team, I embarked on my ACA qualification journey, leveraging workplace learning and ACA exams to deepen my knowledge. After completing the ACA Certificate and progressing through the Professional level, I became a senior audit team member by November 2021, mentoring junior colleagues. Now qualified, I've moved to the Corporate Finance team, advising clients on acquisitions, sales, or funding, and conducting business valuations and financial due diligence.
John Downes

John Downes

I started at WMT as a CFAB apprentice in September 2019, straight from Sixth Form, receiving a warm welcome. Despite the Covid pandemic disrupting my early experience, I continued my CFAB studies and workplace skill development. After successfully completing the Certificate in Finance and Business, I was accepted onto the Level 7 ACA apprenticeship, working towards the Professional and Advanced level exams. Throughout my apprenticeship, I benefited from extensive support from the team, enhancing my professional growth and bridging the gap between studies and practical experience. Working with diverse clients has enriched my experience, and having passed my final ACA exams, I'm now focusing on my full-time role, still backed by ongoing training and management support.
