We’re a Top 15 SME Apprenticeship Employer for 2023!


It’s official – we are in the Top 15 SME Apprenticeship Employers of 2023.

After being shortlisted within the Top 50, we are thrilled to announce that we have ranked 14th in the country!

This brilliant result is based on…

  • The impressive number of studiers who have started an apprenticeship at DJH Mitten Clarke in the last 12 months.
  • The diversity of our apprentices, recruited from a wide range of backgrounds for roles across all areas of the business, from accounts and audit to marketing and IT.
  • The number of our superstar studiers who have successfully achieved an apprenticeship qualification in the last 12 months with the support of our Learning & Development team.

James Beardmore, Chief Operating Officer, said, ‘As a business, we’re passionate about recruiting at grass roots and bringing in trainees from local schools, colleges and universities, developing them through the ranks with our comprehensive apprenticeship programmes.’

‘We offer an extensive study package for our apprentices, which includes fully funded training and study support. Our apprentices gain real world experience and training on-the-job to complement their studies, with paid study days to help them prepare for their exams. Being ranked 14th in the UK is a huge achievement and demonstrates our commitment to early careers and our people first approach. I am incredibly proud of all our apprentices, who are guided through their studies with our dedicated Learning and Development Co-ordinator, Chris Rawlinson.’

The result is off the back of months of growth for our business, after acquiring Leeds based accountancy firm Novis & Co, Cheshire based Morris & Co taking the DJH Mitten Clarke name and the appointment of our Chief Financial Officer, Matt Mellor.
