Job Description

Our client is a financial advisory firm and was founded in 2002. The firm’s advisers provide advice to individual and corporate clients across the UK primarily in relation to pensions, investments and protection.
The firm’s central objectives are to provide exceptional advice and customer service, and key to it delivering on these is the first-rate team of advisers that work there. They therefore want to recruit advisers who have the same ethos in relation to client service as they do.

All of their advisers have access to the latest in IFA technology to enable them to research the market and find the best products to meet the needs of their clients and streamline workflow. Their fee splits, detailed below, are generous and include all FCA fees, insurance, software and compliance costs.
This could be an ideal opportunity for an existing self-employed adviser, or equally for an employed adviser that's looking to further their career with a progressive firm that can provide clients and has almost two decades experience in supporting self-employed advisers.  

Required experience and skills:
·       Minimum Level 4 Diploma Qualified with previous experience in an adviser role
·       A high level of confidence, sales and presentation skills and interpersonal skills
·       The ability to approach all tasks with a positive attitude
·       Good communicator  

·       Managing and maintaining service proposition to clients through regular contact
·       Engaging with clients and building relationships
·       Delivering formal recommendations  

Role Profile
They are looking to recruit an adviser to service and grow the client bank that a retiring adviser currently services. This client bank consists of 55 clients, most of whom are located in the North West, and £60m of assets.
The retiring adviser has been a trusted adviser to these clients for many years and is very technically competent. The clients are professionals, business owners, and retired professionals and business owners. As would be expected given the assets that these clients have and their ages there is tax and estate planning work to do with many of these clients. The clients also receive a cashflow modelling service.
An adviser who is technically proficient in these areas and has gravitas is required to take over the servicing of these clients. The firm is looking for an adviser that has experience in dealing with HNW clients. An ideal candidate would be able to bring clients with them, although this is not a requirement.
The retiring adviser has agreed to do a face-to-face handover with all of the clients to ensure a smooth transition and will remain available for the adviser to discuss matters with after his retirement.
Salary dependent upon experience.
