Graduate Trainee – Financial Planner

We are looking for a high-calibre Graduate to join our growing team and play a pivotal role in delivering outstanding services to our valued clients. As part of our team, you’ll have the opportunity to work in a fast-paced, collaborative environment where your skills and expertise will be put to the test every day. With a focus on financial planning and discretionary investment management, you’ll be an integral part of ensuring that our clients’ assets are managed efficiently and effectively.

Why Saltus?

Our mission is to improve everyone’s relationship with their wealth: to make it a positive force for their future and at the same time to prevent it being a source of anxiety. We want everyone who works at Saltus to be proud to work here, and to find fulfilment and meaning in the work that they do. We have a number of offices in the South of England including London, Whiteley and Farnham.

We are incredibly proud of our culture and work really hard to ensure that Saltus is a great place to work for our people, where they can have fun and grow in their career, with a passion for excellence and customer service.

Saltus is a privately owned financial planning and discretionary investment management house. We are dedicated to providing a high-quality service for private clients, trusts, and smaller institutions.

Saltus Partners was founded in 2004 and has grown organically and through a small number of carefully integrated acquisitions. Originally the business started out as an investment manager and has now developed the financial planning side of the offering, putting this at the forefront of the client relationship.

Today Saltus manages and advises on over £3 billion of client assets, acquired through a combination of organic business growth and corporate acquisitions.

The role

We are recruiting for talented graduates to join our 2024 Graduate Trainee Program. You have a fantastic opportunity to learn and develop within an award-winning business, that has a diverse, inclusive, and unique culture full of great people! As part of the program, you will be completing the Diploma in regulated financial planning through the CII, which is an integral part of working towards becoming a qualified financial planner. Saltus will provide you with full support and training, along with an exciting opportunity to experience working within several different departments within the organisation.

Attributes the successful graduate should possess

  • An excellent communicator with a positive mindset
  • Ability to work alone and well in a team
  • Curiosity for solving business problems
  • A ‘growth mindset’, i.e. an appetite for testing yourself and using past mistakes as a springboard to keep improving
  • A technology native who has applied experience with Microsoft Excel but who is comfortable applying that knowledge to other systems
  • Good time management skills, with the ability to prioritise tasks and work to multiple deadlines, often autonomously with a strong attention to detail
  • The ability to form successful professional relationships both internally and externally
  • On track to achieve at least a 2:1 from a leading university.


We are looking for someone to work from any of our Saltus locations, and offer hybrid working, which includes 2 days in the office, with the remainder at home. We’re incredibly flexible about when and how you work: we don’t want anyone to be prevented from coming to work for Saltus as a result of the working pattern that they’re looking for. We are passionate about championing flexible working for our people, so if there’s a slightly different working pattern that you’re looking for, then please come and have a chat to us about it!

Salary and Benefits

Salary opportunity – £28,000, alongside 28 days’ holiday (plus bank holidays), study support, life assurance, income protection and a pension, alongside access to our flexible benefits platform. Just as importantly, you’ll get to experience our culture, which we really do live and breathe ensuring that Saltus is a fantastic place to work for every single one of our 200 people.

So, if you’re looking for an exciting opportunity to join a leading financial planning and investment management firm, then we want to hear from you. Join us at Saltus and be part of a team that’s dedicated to delivering exceptional results for our clients.

We work hard, but we have an awful lot of fun along the way.
