Business Manager

Highly competitive package with potential for equity participation

We are seeking an experienced business manager to join our highly successful practice. You will be looking for a long-term career move that could provide the opportunity to create personal capital in the future.

A long-established, authentic financial planning practice based in city centre Manchester, we work with a mixture of private financial planning and corporate clients throughout the North West of England. Our alignment to St. James’s Place provides us with the backing of a FTSE 100 company, essential regulatory support, award winning investment strategies and an advice guarantee that enables us to optimise the time we spend delivering face to face financial planning to our clients.

Our service led proposition includes:

  • Holistic financial planning utilising industry Lifetime Cashflow Forecasting software
  • Wealth creation, optimisation and protection
  • Tax mitigation strategies for private clients
  • Tax efficient cash extraction strategies for people in business.
The Role

Primarily you will be responsible for the day to day leadership and performance management of a small team of financial planners. This will involve hands on coaching & management with a focus on individual and collective business growth.

We do not believe that leading more than seven finical planners is efficient. Therefore a key aspect of the role will be to recruit a small number of additional team members then maintain the optimum team size and be accountable for consistently growing annual productivity objectives. The role does not include regulatory supervision.

You will need to be prepared to join a small management team where contributions into other focus areas for the business e.g. business development, proposition improvement and marketing will be required.

The initial role is a hybrid leadership and advisory role therefore effective time management and organisational skills will be paramount. As the team reaches optimum size the requirement for personal client work will become optional.

  • Practical experience of authentic holistic financial planning
