Programme: Career Change Programme Insight Event for Returners
The St. James’s Place Academy is partnering with Women Returners to co-host a Career Returners event aimed at introducing returning women to the St. James’s Place career change opportunity, which offers a retraining programme to become a qualified financial planner.
The programme provides an exciting and highly supported pathway into career opportunities within wealth management. St. James’s Place Academy is committed to having a diverse and inclusive work environment and they value the experience and knowledge that a career returner brings to the workplace. The initial and comprehensive training starts with a six months’ virtual training course, known as the Foundation stage. You will gain all the skills and technical knowledge you’ll need to take and pass the exams, to become a qualified financial planner. Following this stage, you will continue developing your skills, supported by a Development Manager and a Mentor, as you build your wealth management business.
