Progressive Growth Programme


We’re delighted to announce the launch of our Progressive Growth Programme. We’re looking for enthusiastic and proactive individuals who are relatively new to the industry to undertake our new bespoke training programme, and go on to become an Adviser with Wellesley Wealth Advisory.

This is an employed position with on target earnings of up to £100,000.

To find out more, watch the video, where our Managing Director, Tony Hannigan, tells Wellesley Brand Ambassador Sarah Stirk about the programme, and why he’s personally so excited about it.

The programme:

Our Progressive Growth Programme comprises a 12-week curriculum, which will start as soon as we have accepted all candidates. It’s a technical programme, with a varied curriculum that will include a mixture of lectures and sessions, with key topics like economics and politics. It will also cover things that you might not encounter until later in your career, such as Wills, probate, corporate tax planning, director protection and much more.

Most importantly, it will focus on you and your skills as a financial adviser, equipping you with the personal attributes you need for a successful career – such as body language and tone.

Wellesley Managing Director Tony Hannigan is extremely passionate and excited about the programme, and says it covers things he wishes he’d been shown at the beginning of his career. He comments that he hopes it will be a programme that candidates will be able to reference for the rest of their working life.

What happens next?

After completing the programme, you will become an Adviser at Wellesley, with your own bank of clients to manage, with the support of our successful team of advisers. We believe that the best financial advisers are those who are immersed in helping clients early on.

Who can apply?

Successful applicants will have been in the industry for over two years (and no more than eight years), with a minimum Dip level 4 qualification. We are looking for candidates who think they will benefit from being in a team environment – following the course, you will be located at our headquarters in Burgess Hill.

Why Wellesley?

We have a large and well-established client base, and are incredibly proud to have a client retention rate consistently over 99%. With over £830m funds under management, we are one of the largest practices by funds under management within the St. James’s Place Partnership.

We believe our Progressive Growth Programme, coupled with ongoing support from a successful team, will help you to take your career to the next level.
