First Wealth seeks more university graduates

A London-based advice firm is seeking young talent as part of its broader expansion plans.

Anthony Villis, one of the founders of First Wealth, said that he had recently recruited the firm’s first graduate from Manchester Metropolitan University and wanted to focus on more young talent.

He said: “We are really keen to employ both experienced chartered advisers and develop relationships with universities to bring young talent into the industry.”

The firm, which was founded in 2009 and currently employs 12 full-time staff, is involved in other plans, including business accelerator sessions with Grant Thornton focused on marketing and recruitment strategies and a rebrand due by August 2015.

Mr Villis said: “We are currently working on a major rebrand to better reflect our offering of lifestyle financial planning.

“The aim is to strip the brand back to basics and move away from the wordy websites that are the mainstay of financial services.”

Background

Earlier this year, Hemel Hempstead-based Carematters, which specialises in later life advice, revealed that it was bringing in an extra adviser and seeking an apprentice.
