Wells Gibson is committed to the growth of financial planning as a profession and believes mentoring is one of many ways to do just that – our Managing Director was delighted to receive this encouraging testimonial from a current mentee who works for a large investment company, and is seeking to become a financial planner.
“I have spoken to Jonathan, and his wider team, on a number of occasions after I was fortunate enough to be matched via a mentoring programme. Whilst I have numerous years of experience in Financial Services/Investment Management, I was initially hesitant to take my initial steps in pursuing a new career move in the Financial Planning profession. Having Jonathan as a sounding board for advice and guidance has been invaluable, and whilst I have yet to make my desired move, I feel that the initial insights gained from our discussions and emails have put me firmly on the right track. One of the barriers to entry into the profession seems to be a lack of resources for potential new recruits to find out more about the “day job”, or to ask those silly questions. I’m very fortunate, and grateful, that I have Jonathan for this, I always felt invigorated and encouraged after our meetings, his love for the profession and desire to help is infectious.”
