Financial Planning firm The Paraplanner Hub has increased its workforce as business continued to boom during lockdown.
Former financial adviser Tony Slimmings started offering freelance paraplanning services in early 2017, before scaling up and launching The Paraplanning Hub based in Castle Eden in December 2019. He has since taken on five new team members across the UK to grow its financial administration services.
The new roles include a practice manager, an administrator, two paraplanners and a systems analyst.
Despite having scaled-up a business during the upheaval of the coronavirus pandemic, Mr Slimmings is positive that the crisis can offer opportunities for growth – and is already planning further expansion.
Mr Slimmings said: ““Since 2017, the company has changed from a freelance paraplanner business to a full-service adviser support company. We offer financial administration and paraplanning support to allow single adviser firms to operate without the need for staff
