Joining our team would be a chance to work on all aspects of financial planning, being part of a close-knit environment that is growing, has an entrepreneurial mindset and provides varied responsibility and the ability to be empowered beyond the job title.

We are offering a varied role providing support to a Chartered Financial Planner in the following key areas; Tax Planning (ISA, pension contributions, CGT planning), Estate Planning (inheritance tax, trust planning), Investment Advice (asset allocation, review, analyse, recommend, EIS/VCT), Ongoing Portfolio Reviews.
