Senior Investment Paraplanner

To £45K + 30 days Hols + 8% Pension
Flexi Office Hours, 5x Life Cover, Free Parking

The focus of the role is preparing complex suitability reports and delivering technical support on pensions, investments and DB transfers to the client services team and our clients. Qualified to Level 4 Diploma level you’ll need significant experience in preparing investment and pension recommendations for high net-worth clients.

In researching products, providers and funds you’ll also need a working knowledge of taxation, trusts, and estate planning. While we have a proven investment process to follow, the tone and the content of the suitability reports, and selection of funds, will need to be tailored to the needs of each client.

This is not a ‘desk in the corner’ role, as you’ll need to be friendly and supportive towards the rest of the team and be able to chat with our clients. In return, you can look forward to a long-term career with us, a nice working environment and salary reviews each year consistent with your progress.

Helen Blackburn talks about careers with Oaklands Wealth Management

Why work with Oaklands Wealth?

Maybe you are under-appreciated by your current employer, your talents aren’t fully used or things have changed and the new regime isn’t to your liking?

Whatever your reason, we are a growing regional company based in Sutton Coldfield and we take the development of our team very seriously. If you join us you’ll have regular reviews all through your career with us.

The focus is on you. That’s why we call them Personal Development Reviews (PDRs) to check in with you on your progress, aspirations and any frustrations.

They allow us to rise above the day-to-day work to see what’s needed to keep you interested and our clients well served.

Employee Testimonial


I joined Oaklands Wealth as an Investment Adviser as I like the culture here of identifying and playing to people’s strengths. This resulted in me taking the opportunity to manage the client services function, as well as giving advice to clients.

Day-to-day, I am part of a team with a fun and hardworking atmosphere, which also shares a strong client-centred work ethic and a fantastic reputation.

Not only are Oaklands clients looked after and treated well – the Oaklands’ staff are too. I feel extremely happy here as I feel valued and appreciated – Helen is always happy to listen to any ideas I may have.

There is a strong focus on training and education, both of which have been provided to me by the Company as part of my on-going development programme.

If you are looking to work for a company that will appreciate and support you, Oaklands will suit you well!

Employee Testimonial


Having worked at Oaklands for 13 years, I have seen the company grow and expand in both personnel and office spaces. It has been great to watch it evolve from the beginning.

From the start, Oaklands has been a professional and forward thinking company. Our systems and processes are constantly being reviewed.

We are encouraged to streamline the way we work to make sure we work as efficiently as possible.

This helps us to provide the best service we can for our clients. The work is fast paced which means there is never time to get bored.

Clients and visitors often compliment our office. As well as the attractive & spacious layout of the building, we have an endless supply of tea, coffee and biscuits to fuel our day.

The thing that stands out from previous employment is the flexibility that the Directors have entrusted me with.
