Graduate Trainee Paraplanner

Posted 6 days ago by Begley Brown

£20,000 - £25,000/annum

Are you a recent graduate or have you left university in the last couple of years but are stuck in a role that's just not cutting it or giving you the opportunities you are craving?

Are you looking for a career, not just another job? Do you want to learn, be mentored and pass exams that will take you right to the very top of our profession?

This is an opportunity that doesn't come around that often and we're not a business that is constantly hiring graduates. We just want one, we want the best one we can hire, and we want to take you all the way.

If you are keen on entering the financial planning profession, you have made a great career choice. You will have an extremely bright future, plenty of prospects, highly prized qualifications and superb earnings potential. You just need to choose the right firm to work for and that firm is us!

We are different to other financial planning firms, because for us it's not all about money, we help our clients connect with their wealth and make life changing decisions. We are passionate about what we do and if you share our passion, we want to hear from you!

Your role with us, to begin with, will be varied and challenging and you will play an important part in supporting the advisers with the advice that we give to our clients. The nature of the work that you do will become more complex as you progress with us and take exams. The job you will be doing for us in 5-10 years' time will be very different from the one you start doing with us.


20 days holiday plus Scottish Bank holidays plus paid holiday between Christmas and New Year, 5% pension contribution. We also work a four-hour Friday if the week's work is done and the business is in a position to finish early.
