The Verve Group is combined of a number of companies, including Para-Sols (an outsourced paraplanning company), Apricity Compliance (providing compliance support to advisers), The Art of Finance (which provides training courses for those looking to develop a career in financial services) and finally, The Verve Foundation (a not-for-profit that invests in the future of finance).
The Group of companies all work towards the same two missions; to help support good quality financial advice firms to grow and develop, and to attract new people into financial services and help train them up, for the good of the future of finance.
Across all companies, we approach financial services with a fun and positive outlook and offer a range of benefits to permanent employees to ensure our staff feel supported and motivated. We reward loyalty and offer enhanced benefits to long-service employees, but as standard (once you’ve successfully completed your 6 month probation) these include…
26 days holiday (including days off at Christmas), bank holidays & your birthday off (if it falls on a weekday)
Personalised salary structure to reflect your own effort and contribution
Personal development budget (for exams, training, anything to help you excel!)
Death in service cover
Company pension scheme
Optional working from home policy, 2 days per week (on completion of probation)
What makes us different…
Health and wellbeing programme, including hoodie, drinks bottle and fitness tracker.
Open plan ‘living office’ environment – including rocking (or sometimes dubious) playlists, a beer & wine fridge and a breakout lounge.
Two office annual company parties, plus ad hoc team nights out.
Casual dress code
Office snacks and refreshments
Office dogs – we’re not a place for people scared of dogs!
Did we mention there’s no lock on the beer/wine fridge?
“… and have some fun doing it.”
It will probably be no surprise by now that that we believe whole-heartedly in the “work hard, play hard” ethos and so regularly give ourselves the chance to recharge and relax.We finish a little early on Friday, and meet in our own office pub (called The Tunstall Arms) or outdoor terrace, where we unwind from the week and start looking forward to the weekend.
