Job Description

Want a job that can genuinely change lives? A rewarding and challenging role that can help your clients to live the life they want with the money they have? If so, and you’re reliable, disciplined, and a great listener, we’d love to hear from you.

Antony Smith founded Providus Financial in 2015 with a mission to do things differently. Having worked in firms who were more focused on the ‘sale’ than on clients’ lives, Antony established Providus to provide genuinely transformative financial planning advice.

Over the last five years, we’ve grown significantly and now we’re looking for a trainee financial planner to take on existing client relationships and build new ones. As we continue to grow, there will be additional opportunities for you to progress your career.

We believe that financial planning transforms lives. It’s not about getting the best returns on investments or building more wealth. Money is a tool to facilitate the things we want from life, and we’re looking for someone who shares our passion for helping our clients achieve their goals.
