Who you’ll be joining

Portafina Investment Management is a specialist financial advisory business focussing on pensions and retirement which looks after over £600m in pension assets for more than 12,500 clients.

Founded in 2017, we help clients get the best out of their pensions, both now and in the future. Whether that be through accessing pension benefits, reducing charges, or improving their performance, we’re focussed on delivering specialist financial advice along with a great level of service.

In a fast-paced industry that is rapidly evolving, we are at the forefront of providing a proposition that hasn’t been easily available to the everyday person until now. We need to keep providing great customer service as we grow, and as the environment and technology around us changes. We can’t do that by standing still.

Based, in Rochester, Kent, we employ over 150 likeminded people that strive to do an exceptional job for our clients. In turn we create a positive nurturing environment in which they can thrive – from entry level roles with training, development, and career progression available through to highly qualified experienced industry professionals.

A great place to work must continue to hire great people, so, if you think you could be one of them, we want to hear from you.

As well as a competitive salary, you’ll receive the following benefits:

  • Annual bonus scheme
  • Quarterly Brand Ambassador and Values Achievement awards
  • 25 days holiday on top of public holidays – plus an extra one on your birthday
  • Company pension with the same excellent discounts we negotiate for our clients
  • Life assurance
  • Critical illness cover
  • Income protection
  • Private medical insurance
  • Private dental cover (contributory)
  • Free eye tests
  • Structured career progression and qualification plan
  • Support for study and costs of Chartered Insurance Institute exams
  • Friends and family discount on our services
  • Birthday vouchers

We also have regular social events (including Summer and Christmas parties) organised by our internal Partyfina staff committee, there’s on-site parking available, and we take a hybrid approach to working with a minimum of 3 days in the office (initial training is office-based).
