Graduate Scheme 2016

Following the success of our 2015 graduate scheme (you can see Kate and Simon on our Team page) we have now commenced our second intake of future Paraplanning stars. We will be looking to take on at least two new members of staff for our Darlington office, to help support the existing team and begin their own paraplanner training.

What can we offer you?

We can offer you a defined career path, a structured learning programme, and we will support you to complete your Level 4 Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning – paid for by us! If you want to continue studying, or even specialise in a certain area, we will support that too. Here in the office we offer a relaxed working environment, casual dress code, excellent holiday allowance and potential bonuses.

Who are we looking for?

The ideal Para-Sols candidate will be someone who is genuinely enthusiastic, not afraid to ask questions and learn as they go. As a modern, forward thinking company we welcome someone with fresh ideas. We are also looking for someone with self-discipline who has the ability to manage their own workload and is always a team player. A graduate with any degree subject can apply – one of our last graduates studied Zoology! The only must is a genuine interest in a career in Financial Services.

So how do I apply?

You can apply now by sending an up to date copy of your CV and a covering letter telling us why you think a career in paraplanning is for you, to The scheme is now open, with the closing date for applications being Friday 17th June. We will be shortlisting applications and inviting successful applications to an assessment day in our Darlington Head Office on Friday 24th June 2016.

We look forward to meeting you!

The Para-Sols Team
