Brewin Dolphin launches financial adviser apprenticeship scheme


In the last few months, the company has recruited a total of 12 new apprentices to its new Financial Planning Academy hubs in its Manchester, Birmingham and London offices.

In addition, four existing employees in financial planning support roles have been accepted onto the government-recognised scheme.

The 16 apprentices will undertake a two-year programme that will take them from being new entrants to the industry to achieving the CII Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning.

They will also acquire new technical and personal skills, as well as growing their financial planning knowledge.

The apprenticeship scheme “has been designed to be a genuine alternative to the more traditional university route”, the company said in a statement.

“The Brewin Dolphin financial planning apprenticeship scheme is an important step to organically grow our business over the long-term,” said Brewin Dolphin chief executive David Nicol.

“A new generation of home-grown advisers will talk the same language as a new generation of clients.”

Last year the government approved a standard for the financial advice apprenticeship scheme, saying it would offer employers up to £9,600 ($12,352, €10,793) in financial help for adviser training purposes.
