My first two weeks as Executive Assistant at The Verve Group…

The start of my job application at The Verve Group seems so long ago, I was half way through the recruitment process awaiting to go along to the final stage when the dreaded COVID-19 and lockdown hit. A few months later my trial was booked and the next thing I knew I was sitting at my new desk as Executive Assistant!

As soon as I saw the advert it grabbed my interest and from first glance, I would have never guessed it was a role within finance. The Verve Group blows the stereotype of working in finance out the water, and my welcome has been so friendly and casual, without a suit in sight!

My first two weeks have been a fantastic insight into the brand and different companies which make up the group.

Firstly, I was thrown straight into learning about Para-Sols, speaking with all their clients to update the terms of business, a great way to get to know the different companies and the paraplanning services that Para-Sols offer.

Next up was Apricity Compliance – gaining an insight into the client journey from on-boarding with the system, to having quarterly and annual reviews with their dedicated consultant. 

A task from The Art of Finance then came along to send out lovely postcards to all those who had taken an exam following their training recently and had passed to say well done. Something I have noticed at The Verve Group is that they always deliver on those little things that mean a lot, and that’s to both clients and their employees.

On my first insight of the company I have found technology plays a massive part and they are either building new or incorporating current software into everything they do to improve and support the world of finance. This even goes down to the online interactive brochures they have on their services. It makes everything so easy, slick, efficient and all can be found or looked into at a click of a button. 

I’m really looking forward to learning more at my role here and to sum up… Verve is definitely ahead of the curve!
