Financial admin – the backbone of financial services

Financial administrators provide invaluable support for financial advice firms and financial administration should be considered a career in its own right, says Sophie Wilkin, financial administrator for Para-Sols.

‘Administration’ is a word often thrown about across many different industries, perhaps too often that people have started to overlook the fundamental importance of it.

There’s no denying that, yes, it’s a great way to get your foot in the door of a business, allowing you to explore your options, but administration in itself has plenty of progression options without feeling daunted by the thought of having to push yourself into something you might not actually want to do.
