After graduating from university in 2008, I was keen to start a career in Financial Services and I always wanted to be based in the City. I started out at one of the UK’s largest retail and commercial banks, and during my career progression I acquired many transferable skills. This was due to my vast experience of developing strong relationships with my clients and the fact that I enjoyed providing holistic financial advice.
After seven years of success in financial services I was made redundant. I decided to make a change and I used this opportunity to explore my options with regards to what my next role might be. I knew I wanted to join a company whose approach was based on advice that is tailored to the client’s different priorities and needs and not constrained by a tick box approach. Although I did receive various job offers, I felt Alexander Hall presented the most dynamic and interesting challenge. It offers me the chance to meet a wide variety of clients on a daily basis, all with differing needs and circumstances. Alongside this, the prospect of working for a company with a strong heritage and great people appealed to me very much.
I was given a unique training programme and since joining Alexander Hall as a Protection adviser, it has proven to be a fast growing division of the business. After being in this role for several months now, what I admire the most is the level of support you get from your network. Whether it be from the directors, the fellow advisers, or even the business development managers who we get to work so closely with, who invest a great deal of their time supporting your business and arranging training events so you can continue to grow your product knowledge.
One of the most rewarding aspects of working at Alexander Hall is the fact that it offers such a huge scope of opportunity for career progression. Whether it is the excellent earnings potential in becoming an Associate director, or the team leadership skills you develop in becoming a Team leader. During the short time I have been at Alexander Hall I have thoroughly enjoyed working here and I look forward to the exciting prospects and challenges that lie ahead of me as the business continues to grow.
