MPA Careers

Would you like to be a valued member of a remarkable team? Are you driven by the world of financial advice? Do you have a passion for understanding, researching and finding solutions to clients’ unique financial needs? Do you get a kick out of forging ongoing relationships with customers, deriving satisfaction from seeing their financial security assured as a result of your guidance?

Success breeds success, and at MPA our high calibre team feeds off each other’s talents, experience and enthusiasm. We recognise that it’s also important to engage in continuous professional development, so that skills are constantly updated. This goes hand-in-hand with our ‘Inform, Educate, Inspire’ ethos, and results in the whole being very much greater than the sum of the parts.

About MPA

MPA is all about people – the team, the staff and the Company. Team spirit is key, as demonstrated by our various team building activities.

Everyone – whether Director, Adviser or Administrator – has their part to play and is valued for their own special contribution. The Company is small but perfectly formed, with an emphasis on excellent customer service, and is set to grow – therefore interesting opportunities may be just around the corner.

You may be at the start of your career in the financial sector, you may be a graduate or you may be established but looking to change focus and perhaps move closer to home. And it’s not all about advisers, as there will also be openings in para planning, administration and marketing; whatever the role, once talents are spotted they’re nurtured.

A Career in Wealth Management is More Than Just Numbers.

MPA Financial Management are a fast growing firm based in Henley in Arden. Over the last few years we have gone from a small provincial firm into one of the larger independent firms in the West Midlands. We manage over £650M in FUM with a target of achieving £1BN within the next 5 years. We are always on the lookout for quality staff to join our team of highly qualified administrators and paraplanners.

Wealth management is a dynamic and rewarding industry focussed on providing financial advice to individuals, families, companies and charities to help them achieve their financial ambitions.

Whilst many people believe that a background in finance or economics is essential to pursue a career in wealth management, at MPA we believe that having the right personal qualities, enthusiasm, transferable skills, and a desire to learn are more important.

Many members of our team have joined MPA having had careers in other sectors – but they have all had the right personal qualities and work ethic to make their transition into the financial services industry a success. Whether they are client facing financial advisers, paraplanners or part of our excellent administration team, all have the following qualities.

If you believe you have the attributes to be successful at MPA, we would love to hear from you.

Excellent Personal Skills

In wealth management, the ability to build strong relationships with clients and colleagues is essential. Empathy, excellent communication skills, and a genuine desire to help clients are some of the personal qualities we look for. Clients entrust us with their financial futures, so it is essential that all staff act with integrity, are honest and adhere to the CII’s code of conduct.

Enthusiasm and Drive

Having enthusiasm and a desire to succeed is essential and something we look for in all our employees. And you do not need to have previous experience in financial services to want to learn and succeed! If you are joining from a ‘non finance’ background, then there will be a learning curve to understand the sector and our business, but if you have the enthusiasm, we can provide the training and personal development opportunities to ensure you are successful.

Transferable Skills

One of the advantages of a career in wealth management is the diversity of jobs available and the variety of necessary skills. This means skills picked up in other industries will still be necessary, and something we would look for at MPA. For example, for roles within our admin team, people with backgrounds in customer service or within administrative roles in other sectors, such as law, could thrive. Strong organisational skills and the ability to work as a team are necessary in many careers, and something we value highly at MPA.

Education and Training Opportunities

While prior experience is not a prerequisite, it’s essential to acknowledge the value of education and training at MPA. If you have a desire to learn, we will support you. To ensure we continue to deliver an excellent service to our customers, continual professional development is part and parcel of life at MPA. You can read more here.
