We are looking to expand our team here at Investment Sense and currently have positions available for a part time administrator and an Independent Financial Adviser (IFA).
Investment Sense was founded in January 2010 and since then has grown into a multi-adviser firm, providing advice to clients and financial information to DIY investors, and other investment professionals.
We now need to expand our administrative team to help support our advisers and also require an additional IFA to help deal with the enquiries we receive on a day to day basis.
Anna Timms (right), Managing Director of Investment Sense, said: “The new adviser is needed to help cope with the sheer volume of enquiries we are getting. The fact that we need to recruit additional IFAs in Nottingham, so soon after James Lee and Jessica McGowan have joined our team, is hugely pleasing. It shows we are on the right track, providing vital advice to a number of key groups, including business owners and people getting close to retirement.”
Anna continued: “Unusually, whilst we would of course be happy to speak to existing IFAs, perhaps unhappy with their current role, we can also take applications from tied financial advisers and paraplanners looking to move into an advice based role.”
“We generate a large number of enquiries, which is why we need to recruit additional advisers; the successful candidate will certainly be kept extremely busy!”
Working from our Nottingham office, the successful candidate will join our growing team of advisers, handling a range of different types of enquiry.
The existing Investment Sense team of advisers are dedicated to providing our clients with a first class service and expert advice, the successful candidates will:
- Be able to work as part of a team
- Share the culture and ethics of Investment Sense
- Be passionate about delivering high quality, independent financial advice
- Hold the required qualifications to remain as an IFA following the implementation of the Retail Distribution Review (RDR) in January 2013
Why work with Investment Sense?
We believe, that for the right candidate, this is a hugely exciting opportunity.
Why do we say that?
Firstly we are ideally position for the introduction of the RDR and have been planning for the major change to our industry for over two years.
Secondly, our hugely popular website creates a significant number of enquiries each week, which are dealt with by our advisers. Our marketing doesn’t stop there, over the past few months we have been featured in the Times, the Financial Times, the Sunday Times and the Investors Chronicle.
Thirdly, the new IFA will be joining our existing team of highly skilled and experienced IFAs, who have come from a diverse background, including existing IFAs, technical administration, and mortgage advice.
Finally, 100% of our clients, who responded to our request for feedback, have said that they would recommend Investment Sense to friends and family.
Administrator also required
We also have a position available for a part time administrator.
The successful candidate will provide support for our existing administration team, as well as the IFAs within the firm.
Previous financial services experience is preferred, although not essential. However, a background in similar administration roles is vital, as is the ability to work accurately under pressure and to fit into our existing team easily.
The role is part-time, 9am-5pm on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Applications for this role should be made by email, attaching a CV to Jane Bray at firstname.lastname@example.org
