Job Description

Financial Planners

Appointed representatives or Registered individuals

IFA, Restricted or Hybrid

Across the UK!

Recruit UK are working on an excellent opportunity for a Financial Planner in the UK to join a National Wealth Management Firm.

Recruit UK are pleased to be working in partnership with a national wealth management firm, we have looked behind the scenes at head office and spoken to existing advisers and we truly believe this is one of the best self-employed propositions available right now.

One of the major things we see with financial advice companies is disjointed processes and antiquated technology, CRM’s that promise the earth but don’t deliver, a multitude of add-ons that come at an extra cost, a never-ending manual and a helpline that is far from helpful.

The great thing about our client is they have designed their own software, built by advisers for advisers, automation is the heart of the process ensuring that marketing, suitability letters, fact finds, product research and other integral parts of the advice process are quick and easy, you don’t even have to worry about opening your post.

You can join as a RI or an AR and still benefit from the same competitive fee splits as low as 8%, you can be IFA or restricted or even a hybrid of the two this is especially attractive to financial advisers who want to build an adviser team by taking advantage of the subsidised adviser academy!

If you are an adviser that struggles with the administration or paraplanning 2plan have fully trained and experienced in house virtual assistants to take the weight off, you can use this as a pay as you go service, removing the extra cost of hiring staff.

Our client will take away the worry and increased pressure of running your own compliance, with the FCA increasing the amount of work involved to be an IFA it makes more sense to let them take care of all things compliance, with regular file checking, pre-approved pension transfer desks and the cost of PI and capital adequacy covered you can ensure that you and your clients are in safe hands.
