Meet our Financial Services Apprentice…





Molly joined our Financial Services Team in April this year, she’s undertaking her apprenticeship to become a Financial Services Administrator.

The apprenticeship covers the skills needed to fulfil this vital support role for our Advisers and clients, but is also an ideal starting point for a career in the financial services sector as she’ll have the opportunity to obtain a professional qualification through the CII at the end of her training.

Not only has Molly been a great addition to the Wilsons team, she has already displayed the core skills needed to be a fantastic FS administrator – quality service delivery, client communication, team working and planning and prioritising skills.

Here’s what Molly has to say about her apprenticeship…

“I am currently doing an apprenticeship in financial services administration at Harold Wilson Financial Services Ltd. During my apprenticeship, everyone I have worked alongside has been supportive in my learning process; I have been given the time and resources to complete my college course as well as getting plenty of experience in hands-on work with the help and support of more experienced administrators.

The apprenticeship has helped me understand how the theory work applies to the real-life cases. As it is an apprenticeship, I am earning while learning, which has been very beneficial as it means I can devote my time to getting my qualifications and building my skills rather than having to split my time and attention between work and learning. Overall, I really enjoy working at Wilsons as it is a welcoming environment.”
