A new apprentice has boosted the ranks of a West Lancashire based Independent Financial Adviser (IFA).

Arie Hogendoorn is the latest addition to Acumen Financial Partnership’s established apprenticeship programme and brings the company’s headcount to 21.

The firm whose head office is in Burscough is enjoying a period of growth and is currently managing more than £300 million of clients investments.

Angela Maher, Managing Director, Acumen Financial Partnership said:

“We’re proud of our record of attracting and training apprentices and after spotting Arie’s potential during a week’s work experience, we were delighted to offer him a chance to start a career within the financial services sector.

“We have a close knit team of advisers and support staff all with a range of different experiences. It’s a good mix creating an environment where everyone feels confident and able to contribute to the business as it grows.”

Arie Hogendoorn, Trainee Financial Planning Co-ordinator said:

“I’m grateful for the opportunity having just completed my A-level and BTEC exams in the summer.

“I’ve already received fantastic support from the team here and the apprenticeship will simultaneously provide invaluable experience for the Paraplanner role itself alongside my professional exams.”

Last year two of Acumen’s previous young employees were shortlisted for awards with one going on to win Lancashire Business View’s Apprentice Award.
