Full Time

My client is an award winning financial planning and investment management company, they are situated in an elegant part of Edinburgh and boast views of the castle. A hot bed of activity means the offices are always buzzing and there is strong team ethos across the business. You will be treated as an adult and you will not be micro managed, instead you will work closely with the financial planners and administrator in a small hub. The company offer a wide range of financial solutions so no two days are the same, there is full training and an extensive induction to ensure you hit the ground running.

The company are in growth mode, it’s the type of company that once you are in you will not want to leave. They offer opportunity to progress your career, whether that’s senior paraplanning, management, investment management, financial planning, technical specialists, investment operations the opportunities are extensive!!! The company pride themselves on their training and route to chartered, so if you want to study, they have no issue with this and will cover the costs involved. Another great thing about this company is that you receive quartile and yearly appraisals, ensuring that you are happy and following your personal development plan. They can be flexible with location, if you need to work from home some days a week they can accommodate this, but of course you must be able to get to the office when required.

The team are fun, friendly, outgoing and best of all egos are left at the door! They get involved in charity days and have a good work life balance, the benefits package is exceptional and you will be eligible for a yearly discretionary bonus on top of a highly competitive basic salary.

This role is not for everyone unfortunately, you must be level 4 qualified and ideally have 2 years paraplanning experience. This is a true paraplanning role, so if you love research, cash flow modelling, tax, pensions and all the juicy stuff then this is for you! If you are weak in one area- not a problem! Training is provided and people are always on hand to guide help and support you.

Interviews can take place around your diary, they understand that it is tough to interview during the day and you don’t want to use your holiday, so they will interview after work and potentially Saturdays, again a great example of my clients flexibility and outside of the box thinking.

High basic, bonus, career progression, great location, route to chartered, further qualifications, flexibility and work life balance! What are you waiting for? Apply today!
