Senior paraplanner, Paraplanner Manager

  • Edinburgh
  • £40000 - £58000 per annum + benefits, hybrid working
  • Permanent

Due to further expansion our client, a leading financial planning and investment management company who offer services throughout the country, have a requirement for a paraplanner or a senior/ paraplanner team leader to join either their Edinburgh or Dundee office to aid their growth strategy. The role would be based hybrid from their offices, remain flexible in working arrangements with team culture being a key focus, and fully support career development pathways towards your goals.

The position will provide essential support to their financial advisers through technical research and report writing (along with attending meetings as required). Their advisers offer holistic independent financial advice to clients. They also provide cashflow modelling, pensions, investment and estate/tax planning services with support from investment managers for their client's other requirements.

The structure of their team means that the successful hire would have hands on exposure to clients, be a vital part to the advice process and have their input recognised. Having continued client contact means that communication/interpersonal skills are key, along with fitting in with their warm and dynamic office culture. For a more senior/experienced appointment, there would be the opportunity to train, mentor, coach and support colleagues and have input to the companies' direction of travel as a part of the management team.

Whilst they can be flexible on exams (and support studies) particularly for a developmental hire, there is a preference for diploma qualified or close to obtaining but a senior must have level 4. A minimum 2 years experience is needed in financial planning/wealth management - either provider, IFA or investment manager etc - providing support to financial advisers carrying out technical support. However they could also consider an individual in a senior IFA administrative role with exam progress to develop - the drive, enthusiasm and eagerness to develop would be key if hiring at that level. Strong software, IT skills, back office experience is a must, with a keen eye for detail and carrying out work inline with FCA legislation/regulations.

This is an outstanding rare opportunity to join their team with a flexible and attractive package on offer, so please get in touch to discuss in more detail as soon as possible prior to submission - all applications treated in the strictest of confidence.
