Are you looking for an opportunity to get into outsourced paraplanning or just to become an amazing Paraplanner?
Well, this might just be it!
We at Plan Works are looking for our next team member and, as an outsourced paraplanning firm, we work with a number of different Financial Planners and financial planning firms. We find that this provides an extra challenge but one that we very much enjoy.
We have four key values, which we live and work by:
Our clients work with us not just to write their suitability letters or produce annual review reports, but to provide true collaboration. We work with the Financial Planner to ensure that any recommendations made are in the best interest of the client as well as being technically the best way to implement the client’s financial plan.
We are now looking for a Paraplanning Administrator to support our Paraplanners.
This is an ideal role for someone who has some financial planning firm experience, maybe as an Administrator or Trainee Paraplanner, but is looking for their next challenge or complete support in becoming an amazing Paraplanner.
If you are already studying towards one of the professional qualifications then great! We will support you further with this if you need as well as providing on the job coaching to ensure you are achieving everything you want and need to.
We pay a salary of £24,000 per year on the basis of working 35 hours per week, with an additional working from home allowance of £500 per year as the role will be working remotely from your own home.
We are more than happy to consider flexible working or a fewer working hours as we want to provide true flexibility to everyone in our team.
We want to provide real employee benefits that are valued by the whole team, so although we only have the benefits you might expect from other employers we are currently looking at adding to these and we are open to ideas. We already have an unlimited holiday policy, following an initial probationary period, as we know that holiday equals happiness!
As part of your day to day role as a Paraplanning Administrator with Plan Works you will be responsible for helping the Paraplanners with reviews of existing plans – mainly pensions and investments as well as drafting annual review reports.
Reviewing existing plans is a key part of financial planning to ensure that the Financial Planner has all the information they need to make suitable recommendations to their client.
The majority of financial planning firms offer annual reviews to their clients as part of their ongoing service, which means that the Financial Planner must provide a review of their plans under their management and confirm whether they remain suitable. We help them by producing a snazzy report for their client.
We try as hard as we can to write in Plain English and make our reports as client friendly as possible, as we do not believe that writing reports “just for compliance” is fun or practical.
If this sounds like what you are looking for – please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. Do not send us your CV or a covering letter but please tell us why you would be the best Plan Works Paraplanning Administrator, what interests you about the role and a little bit about your experience to date.
