Of course, there are some fundamentals but this is really an opportunity to come in, get your feet under the table and put your own stamp on the role. So, if you’re a naturally creative soul with a fierce attitude to get a job done well then, we suggest you keep reading…
Typical Duties and Responsibilities
Relevant marketing experience in financial services would be preferred, but not essential. This is mainly because we think this role is ideal for a recent graduate or those previously in junior marketing roles, and we know because of that, experience is likely to be limited.
As long as you are naturally creative, with a qualification in marketing and some experience with design – we’re confident we could show you the ropes for anything financial services specific. That said, you must be a fast learner to take it all in as we’re a fast-paced office and relish those who roll their sleeves up and show initiative!
It’s also essential for someone in this role to not only support but be pro-active, understand the importance of innovation and come up with their own ideas to help us market ourselves and engage our clients.

Above all, we love someone with a positive attitude who likes a challenge and isn’t afraid to roll their sleeves up and get on with the job!
The Verve Group is a number of companies including Para-Sols (an outsourced paraplanning company) and Apricity Compliance (providing compliance support to advisers) as well as The Art of Finance (which provides training courses for those looking to develop a career in financial services).

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…

A little insider tip for you… Applications and/or CV’s without cover letters get immediate red pen treatment.

Lastly, you have permission to be as creative as you wish, so break the mould and make yourself stand out. That’s what makes us smile.
