About me:

Job Title: Practice Manager & Paraplanner

What I do: I have a wonderfully varied role as both Practice Manager and Paraplanner. Part of my time is spent running the business side of the company and part is working closely alongside the adviser to prepare the research and reports for client reviews and recommendations. No two days are the same! I also lead the client support team and am part of the Senior Leadership Team

Brief Background: After completing university and taking a year out to work for a charity in Africa, I joined Clarus Wealth in 2014 as an administrator. What was supposed to be a two or three week role while Simon and Sarah recruited someone else, has turned into a career! It has been amazing to be part of the company starting from 3 members of staff to the growing team we have today.

Favourite part of my Job: Designing the financial plans that help our clients to make sense of their finances and help guide them towards their financial targets and dreams. We also have a great team spirit and it is a pleasure to work with some amazing people.

Outside Work: Either playing games with my children or escaping to the golf course!

Secret Skill: I was a games maker at London 2012

Childhero Hero: Ronnie O’Sullivan
