By Anita Jaynes on 4 September, 2015

Leading paraplanning firm, Svensoni, who have their head office in Swindon have increased their headcount again and further demonstrated their commitment to future financial services talent with the hiring of their third apprentice.

The company launched in 2010 and now boasts over 250 clients throughout the UK ranging from single advisers to large firms and networks. As well as a notable client bank the company boasts a 97% pass first time rate and vast knowledge in all areas of financial planning.

CEO, Tony Stevens puts this industry leading quality down to their in depth and ongoing commitment to training as well as a culture of continual improvement and attention to detail.

Tony said:”We firmly believe in our people and strive to develop them and their future careers. The quality of our people is what drives the quality of our business, without quality people our business would not have grown to what it is today.

“Our apprenticeship programme has been a fantastic success for us as well as being a unique, challenging and very worthy opportunity for the apprentices.

“In a time when there are not that many opportunities for the younger generation to develop a career that will allow them many options in life it is very satisfying to watch them develop and grow as individuals, each with varying skill sets and abilities.”

Svensoni’s latest hiring on the apprenticeship programme is 17 year old Emillie Suter who joins the company after successfully achieving her AAT at college.

Emillie said: “The opportunity presented to me by Svensoni is something that I am really grateful for, the business and the people in it have broadened my horizons on the aspect of paraplanning and how it is associated within the financial industry; which was an untouched subject within my course. I feel welcomed into the company and look forward to working with them to further my skills.”

The opportunity for the apprentices in the long term is centred on becoming paraplanners. The apprentice scheme takes them through the first year of training which is then followed by a further two years intensive training while working in the role of “support” for the current paraplanners.
