About us

It’s the people that make a business what it is and our company is no different – our clients and team mean everything to us. We strive together and achieve together.

We’re incredibly proud of our culture and have invested a great deal of time and resource in developing a framework to underpin every element of who we are as individuals, and who we are collectively as a business. How we approach recruitment, how we do business with clients and how we interact as a team are all guided by our company values.

 

Mission & Vision

“Give great service, lead the paraplanning industry in innovation and have some fun doing it”

Our company mission is a simple but powerful one. All aspects of our work constitute our mission on a day to day basis but also support our wider vision of being bold, confident and introducing new ways of working together within the ever-changing financial services sector.

Growth & Development

We champion all aspects of personal and professional development and support all members of the team to be the very best version of themselves. From exam qualifications to personal coaching and everything in between, we focus a lot of attention in upskilling our staff meaning they are fulfilled and happy and we’re assured they are providing top quality service to our clients in the areas of work they value most.

We support the team by;
  • <p>Allocating each member of the team with their own learning and development budget – giving them the chance to meet any improvements they identify in themselves in their development check-ins.</p>

Fun & Socials

We believe whole-heartedly in the “work hard play hard” ethos and regularly give ourselves the chance to recharge and relax.

We finish a little early on Friday, and meet in our own ‘Para-Pub’ (called The Tunstall Arms) or outdoor terrace, where we unwind from the week and start looking forward to the weekend.

Every quarter, we come together as a team for a spot of teambuilding and to take stock and reflect on our recent successes as well as sharing any company-wide updates. June and December in particular are celebratory in fashion as we celebrate our company birthday and embrace the approaching festive season! Our teambuilding activities always go out to vote with previous popular choices being quad biking, go karting, clay pigeon shooting, and a good old fashioned pub crawl!

We also have a Health & Wellbeing programme so as well an infinite supply of fruit, snacks and ice lollies, we’re all fans of a little physical competitive challenge and aren’t strangers to muddy bootcamps and exercise marathons, most of which are generally in the name of charity.
