At Reeves Independent we believe in investing in exceptional homegrown talent, and that is why we have launched our new graduate programme, employing eight new graduates right here in the North-East.
Established in 1996, Reeves Independent has gone from a high street pension advice specialist based in Gosforth, Newcastle Upon Tyne, to a country wide financial firm that boast a 99% client retention rate. We are committed to achieving excellence, which includes the ongoing investment and development of our staff.
Our new graduate training programme, launched at the start of 2021, sees talented trainees joining us to ultimately achieve Level 4 Diploma in Regulated Financial planning.
From the day they begin at Reeves Independent, our graduates are a central part of our team working across all aspects of the business on a quarterly basis. Benefiting from working alongside our team of qualified and expert financial advisers to understanding the day-to-day working of our in-house investment services, each graduate is guaranteed to gain an exceptional breadth of knowledge.
As the business continues to grow, and whilst there are a number of different departments across the firm, we pride ourselves on the close working relationships we maintain, and we look forward to our graduates becoming an integral part of the team.
Michael Warmington, Head of People at Reeves Independent, had the following words to say upon the launch of the new graduate programme:
“We are delighted to welcome our 8 new graduates to Reeves Independent and look forward to seeing the impact they have across the company. The business is focused on bringing the best talent into our team to not only provide exceptional service to our clients, but to future proof the delivery of the high standards our clients have come to expect from Reeves Independent.
It is truly our intention to be the scheme of choice for graduates looking to kick-start their career in the financial sector, not only working for one of the FT Adviser top 100 firms in the UK, but to becoming a qualified Financial Adviser.
As one of our new recruits described it as their ‘dream job’ we are thrilled to be able to offer this exciting opportunity to young talent, helping them begin their career”.
