The Company: I am currently working with a highly regarded, regional IFA business with a presence across Yorkshire and the North of England who are looking to add an experienced financial services administrator to their Hexham office. My client is a truly independent financial advice firm who as part of larger group with multiple service offerings focus on private wealth focused financial advice to the professional services industry. A typical case is often inclusive of investments advice, pensions, protection & IHT/tax planning and they are now in a position to recruit into their North East location and expand their back-office support team.

The Role: The remit focuses on a hybrid role take on across technical admin support and basic research/report writing. On a 50:50 basis your time will be split across business processing and administrative support to 2 financial advisers, and basic paraplanning and report writing on the more standard investments workload as required. To review, your responsibilities will include but are not limited to the following:
  • Providing relevant documentation ahead of FPC client meetings;
  • Obtaining relevant research relating to proposed advice;
  • Compiling suitability letters based on the advice being given;
  • Processing new business;
  • Accurate completion of compliance requirements;
  • Responding to client queries;
  • Maintaining client records on XPlan;
  • Liaising with Life offices and providers;
  • Ensuring the administrative requirements are completed for the Client Review Process;
  • Contribute to new business development;
  • Proactively maintain a high level of client service;

  • And if an employee is contributing to the pension scheme they also get 4 X DIS and 50% income protection

The Person: The successful candidate needs to come from an IFA/wealth management/investments management background and have exposure to supporting IFA's/financial advisers in a private wealth environment. You will have wide-ranging knowledge in one of more of the following product areas: investments, pensions, protection, IHT and trust work and ideally have 2 years' plus experience in a similar working environment within an IFA. You will be supported towards your industry qualifications (QCF level 4 diploma via the CII), so any exams currently completed would be advantageous but aren't essential to the application.
