Job Description

Applications screened directly by client

At Praemium, we are on a mission to create remarkable technology that removes the time-sapping activities which get in the way of advisers’ value-add client work.

We are Praemium, an ASX listed, CX Driven Fintech with 20 years of expertise. Our proprietary investment technology administers over $100billion of assets across 5 continents serving more than 500,000 investors worldwide. Our goal is to make the financial services industry more automated, intelligent, and happier by providing outstanding investment technology, at scale.

Wealth Management and IFA firms in the UK and internationally come to us for our next-generation portfolio management. They stay with us for our exceptional service and dedication to continuous improvement, which is why more than 50% of our global headcount is dedicated to our proprietary technology.

We were the first and remain the only platform in the UK to apply the awesome power of AI and machine learning to alert advisers to when their customers need them most. We believe that the shocking lack of integration in our sector needs to be addressed and so we publish our APIs to everyone as a unilateral first step in making financial services more integrated.

We want to make a genuine difference in the platform space, and if you would too, then we would love to talk to you.

Job Purpose
We pride ourselves on delivering world class service and support to all our clients from the UK to Japan and everywhere in between. As an Adviser Support Executive, you will be part of a department which is at the front line of this market-leading service.

Our Adviser Support Team delivers day-to-day support for our clients, with confidence, empathy and good helping of fun sprinkled in for good measure. You will be in regular contact with our clients and work closely with your colleagues to represent the voice of our clients inside the business.

We believe great service and support is proactive, and so you will work with the wider Praemium teams to stay up to date with developments in our products and services, as well as developing a good understanding of our clients and the wider industry. Armed with this knowledge, you will deliver training to our trusted business partners, empowering IFA’s to resolve their client queries before they even arise. For those specialist, technical queries which they rely on us to resolve, you will know our platform and products inside out, to ensure a seamless client experience at every interaction. You will analyse IFA behaviour to ensure that they get the best out of our platform as well as helping to identify new opportunities.
Using the latest technology, the aim of Adviser Support is to be the go-to team for users of the Praemium Platform. Whether this is to resolve queries, address technical issues or provide guidance on how to get the best out of Praemium, the service you offer should make them not only come back tro Praemium again and again, but to share their experience with colleagues and peers.

As part of the Global Adviser Support Team, you will develop deep and long-lasting relationships with key individuals within our clients’ businesses and provide feedback across multiple departments, ensuring our proprietary technology continually evolves to meet their needs.

Duties & Responsibilities

• Contribute with your words and actions, to building a team and a business that we can all be proud of.
