Nathan Moroz-Butler and Alexander Mason join the team at Reeves Indepndent

Reeves Independent believe in investing in exceptional homegrown talent which is why they have launched their new graduate programme, employing eight new graduates in the North-East.

Established in 1996, Reeves Independent has gone from a high street pension advice specialist based in Gosforth, Newcastle Upon Tyne, to a country wide financial firm that boast a 99% client retention rate.

“We are committed to achieving excellence, which includes the ongoing investment and development of our staff.”

The new graduate training programme, launched at the start of 2021, sees talented trainees joining the business to ultimately achieve Level 4 Diploma in Regulated Financial planning.

From the day they begin at Reeves Independent, the graduates are a central part of the team working across all aspects of the business on a quarterly basis. Benefiting from working alongside Reeves’ team of qualified and expert financial advisers to understanding the day-to-day working of the in-house investment services, each graduate is guaranteed to gain an exceptional breadth of knowledge.

As the business continues to grow, and whilst there are a number of different departments across the firm, Reeves Independent pride themselves on the close working relationships they maintain, and are looking forward to the graduates becoming an integral part of the team.

Michael Warmington, Head of People at Reeves Independent, had the following words to say upon the launch of the new graduate programme:

“We are delighted to welcome our 8 new graduates to Reeves Independent and look forward to seeing the impact they have across the company. The business is focused on bringing the best talent into our team to not only provide exceptional service to our clients, but to future proof the delivery of the high standards our
clients have come to expect from Reeves Independent.

It is truly our intention to be the scheme of choice for graduates looking to kick-start their career in the financial sector, not only working for one of the FT Adviser top 100 firms in the UK, but to becoming a qualified Financial Adviser.

As one of our new recruits described it as their ‘dream job’ we are thrilled to be able to offer this exciting opportunity to young talent, helping them begin their career”.

Reeves Independent are currently offering free pension and retirement planning reviews.
