Previous Experience

Your ability to drive lead conversion and achieve commercial success, with our clients’ needs in mind, is what’s important. It’s up to you to assess whether you feel that you can see yourself succeeding in this role and are prepared to put in the work, commitment and self-belief.

You don’t necessarily need experience of financial services, pensions or investments. We can teach you that.

From a technical and regulatory viewpoint, we are Independent Financial Advisers. However, we operate completely differently from traditional financial advice firms because we do not focus solely on selling financial products. Instead, we use our PlanHappy life coaching service to help people plan their life and retirement and enable them to enjoy their desired lifestyle free from worry.

We operate from The Planning Rooms at Preston Farm, Stockton on Tees and serve clients throughout Teesside and Darlington. We have a growing team of 35 people and significant clients’ investment funds under our management.

We tend to recruit from outside the Financial Services Industry so that our people aren’t ingrained with the ‘normal’ way of selling financial products, as we do things so differently here.

Instead, we focus on people who can bring the personal skill set and experience to be successful in their role, we can teach any of the financial knowledge that may be required.
