Full Time


About the role…

The wealth management industry loves talking about the latest products that will make people rich. But we’ve flipped the traditional model on its head. Quite simply, we realised it’s broken and ineffective.

That’s why we made the bold decision to do things differently. To be the best at what we do. And this is your chance to be a part of it by joining one of the most successful financial planning firms in the UK.

As Paraplanner you’ll provide a high level of support to our Relationship Managers and Associate Advisers. You’ll play a big role in delivering financial plans to new clients and co-ordinating an expert team including tax advisers and solicitors.

As part of a high performing team of Paraplanners you’ll be working alongside our Relationship Managers, Associate Advisers and Tax Advisers in creating financial plans and producing high quality, accurate and compliant reports.

Other day-to-day responsibilities include…

  • Provide a high level of technical support to Associate Advisers/Relationship Managers
  • Complete the preparation for client annual meetings
  • Complete an accurate and comprehensive analysis of client’s financial position
  • Creating cashflow modelling using Voyant Go
  • Construct the advice underpinning each financial plan
  • Responsible for the quality, accuracy and compliance of reports and advice
  • Correctly carrying out complex calculations e.g. inheritance tax, carry forward and tapered pension contributions

About you…

As the ideal Paraplanner candidate, you’ll be able to demonstrate the following:

  • Experience working as a paraplanner
  • Experience in writing full financial plans
  • A true understanding of holistic financial planning
  • Have worked with high net worth clients
  • Strong technical knowledge and the ability to simplify the complex
  • Well developed analytical skills and a high level of attention to detail
  • Top-notch organisation skills and ability to actively prioritise your workload
  • Ability to juggle lots of different tasks comfortably and deliver work within agreed timescales
  • The Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning
  • Working towards the Chartered or Certified Financial Planner qualification (desirable)

  • B Corp certified! Measuring and improving our impact beyond business for a brighter tomorrow
  • Best Companies No.1 Accountancy Firm to work for in the UK & No.30 Best Large Company to work for 2023

What’s in it for you…

We have always believed in trusting our people to make the right decisions for themselves. From how you dress, to where you work and how often you take holiday. We give our people the opportunity to work flexibly, as well as the trust and accountability to deliver.
