Job Description

IRC are pleased to be working with a local Financial Advice practice in Sale, who have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Pension Transfer Specialist (PTS) to be part of their expanding team, providing a pension transfer advice service for a large existing bank of UK and International IFAs. This is an FCA regulated role, and all fees are non-contingent.

There is a high demand for the service that they are offering and are growing quickly to meet this demand.

They are looking for a PTS to either work from our Manchester office or be home based, with occasional travel to the office.
