Congratulations to Emily Walker on five years’ service here at Four Oaks Financial Services. Emily’s career as a valued member of our team is a terrific success story. She started on an Apprenticeship in Administration, which not only gave her work experience but she was also able to study for qualifications in communications and general administration.
When her Apprenticeship ended, we welcomed Emily into our Client Support team as a full-time member of staff. As her skills and knowledge developed Emily was promoted to Senior Administrator and a few months later took on the role of Head Of Administration when the manager was on maternity leave. Having done a fantastic job leading the department, Emily took the opportunity to become part of our in-house training academy. She is working towards being qualified to the same level as our Financial Advisers. She has passed two exams already and is well on her journey to achieve the Level 4 Diploma in Financial Advice and from there will see where her career opportunities take her.
Emily’s current role is working alongside our most senior Financial Adviser who provides financial advice local to Lichfield and the wider Midlands area.
Emily said “What I love about working here is the variety of products, services and processes there are to explore, study and learn about. There is always someone who can help with knowledge and advice as I progress in my career whether that be one of my colleagues in Paraplanning or one of our Financial Advisers. Each time I have been given more responsibility I feel that the company has trust and faith in me to do a good job, which I really appreciate.”
Congratulations Emily from all your colleagues and we hope you enjoy your gift from the company.
