- Drafting / completion of Suitability Reports. This will involve the use of Financial Planning software tools, such as Selectapension, Assureweb and FE Analytics.

- Assisting advisers and paraplanners with ad hoc requirements. These could range from non-advice related reports to assisting with annual review reports and other activities.

- Ensure in-house systems are effectively used to record case progression and work for costs and audit trail purposes.

- Awareness of industry changes, including with regards to suitability report requirements and maintaining CPD & FCA knowledge, in line with company and CII requirements.

- Ad hoc / miscellaneous tasks.
