I lead the team of Wealth Management consultants specialising in Wealth Management and placing IFA Administrators, Paraplanners and Financial Advisers in London and South East, Surrey, Sussex, Kent, Berkshire, Hertfordshire and Essex borders.
For candidates, we can provide you with opportunities and up to date advice to help you develop your career. If you upload your CV to any website you will have 50 calls to your mobile by morning then you’ll know how valuable working with a consultancy service like Financial Divisions is. As we meet all our candidates, to enable us to get a better understanding of their career aspirations and the types of firms and corporate cultures they would best suit.
Having identified the above, we can then take you out to fewer, but more relevant clients, many of which we work with on an exclusive basis.
For client companies, working with my team you will gain a recruitment partner. Not someone who will intermittently fire CVs at you, but someone who will want to gain a deep and thorough understanding of your requirements and challenges whilst giving you access to an extensive network of relevant professionals
