We are seeking a financial planning undergraduate to assist us with our social media and other content creation up to 18 hours per week. Remuneration will be at the national living wage for the area the successful candidate resides in.

There may be other involvement with administrative support task as part of the role.

Key attributes of a successful applicants will be:

  • A passion for financial advice and helping consumers make better financial decisions

Post COVID-19 our team has become decentralised, with everyone working from home. We plan to hold regular team meetings in central London once lockdown arrangements permit, however, attendance of these will not be mandatory for this role however the successful candidate will be given the opportunity to join the sessions from time to time, to further their knowledge and experience.

We believe this role represents an exceptional opportunity for someone studying financial planning to gain first-hand insight into the complexity of the advice process and the issues advisers need to clearly understand.
