The Company: I am currently working on behalf of unique, family feel IFA business based in Worksop who are looking to bring in a qualified Financial Adviser to their advisory team as a 'succession plan' hire, with directors looking to take a step into part-time work across the next 5 years. You will inherit a bank of corporate clients from day 1, and supplement this with development across the private wealth arm of their advisory business and lead opportunities that arise in that space. The opportunity would suit QCF level 4 qualified adviser (who ideally holds CAS) and can advise across both private wealth and corporate/group scheme workload. This is a very exciting opportunity for a seasoned financial planner (wither employed of self-employed) to join a hugely successful IFA business writing circa £1.5m worth of business year on year across their team of 5 advisers; with a separate Mortgage arm contributing circa £400k p/a on top of that.

The Role: Reporting into the MD the role itself will sit within their advisory team and work extensively in the corporate arena to begin with, servicing group life/risk clients across a book of business that can be handed to you from day 1. Alongside this you will be expected to develop business in the private wealth product areas too inclusive of investments, pensions and protection/life planning. Business areas include investments, pensions including DB transfers and protection including keyman and shareholder protection. Also, typical leads generated by the business are individuals who are in receipt of a drawdown pension, so an 'at-retirement' bias to the geographic is there on the client side. Other duties include:
  • Establishing a professional working relationship with clients both new and existing
  • Identifying business opportunities via leads, referrals and other new business development avenues
  • Analysing information gathered and undertaking sufficient research to make suitable recommendations.
  • Completing all supporting documentation accurately (PLUM system used)
  • Working in a way that complies with regulatory requirements
  • Meeting regulatory requirements in respect of qualifications and ongoing professional development
  • Servicing of the client bank and client portfolios as required and in accordance with strict FCA Regulations and internal procedures
  • Providing a high quality after sales service to the firm's clients;
  • Maintaining performance standards in accordance with those outlined in the Key Performance Indicators section of the Training and Competence procedures.

*The Client Bank: On offer here is a corporate scheme focused client bank which requires national coverage, so you must be willing to travel and work away from home on occasion primarily around the South Coast. These schemes require servicing as well as the business looking to develop leads and opportunities across their private wealth arm too. Some transferable clients would be ideal but aren't essential, and connections/contacts of your own to develop business from to supplement that client-base would again be advantageous but aren't an absolute pre-requisite for the client.

The Person: Ideally you will be a QCF level 4 diploma qualified, CAS adviser who can come into the business and advise from day 1. Although if you are qualified but require some support to get signed off, that is something my client can look at across the next 6-9 months. A corporate focused book of business is there to come and develop/service so initially it is imperative you have a group life/risk background and can advise in that arena. There will be a new business element to the role too, albeit secondary to the initial need to recruit so exposure to this business development is paramount too and that sales focused, proactive/driven approach is most definitely required to be successful in this role.
