Our Office Team
“After many years in hospitality management I took a career change to find a better work-life balance. I started working for a business process outsourcing company, discussing the options to help people in financial difficulty get back on track with their mortgage payments. I wasn’t in a position to give advice, but I really enjoyed reviewing their circumstances, matching solutions, and signposting them to the right places for support.
I jumped at the chance to work for Shore Financial Planning because of their reputation, their client-focused attitude, and the support they offer their staff. I’m a driven person so although the work is challenging, I love pushing myself to learn more each day and I’m looking forward to building my qualifications further. I’ve not just found the right work-life balance here at Shore Financial Planning, I’ve found a great job role, an inspiring team and an exciting career path ahead of me.”Naomi Hall (Senior Administrator)
“I have worked in various roles within the Financial Services sector where I have gained experience in Mortgages, Insurance and Investments. After working for Fidelity/FundsNetwork for 5 years I decided to relocate from Surrey to Plymouth and was lucky enough to secure a role with SFP, where I am now progressing my career and aim to attain a diploma in Paraplanning. SFP are extremely supportive to both their staff and their clients and are very focussed on doing right by their clients. I am very excited to be building my career with such a great company.
Outside of work I am a big football fan (Chelsea) and enjoy going out and socialising, and spending time with my family.”Nicola Blakeman (Administrator)
“I have experience in a range of different industries including Hospitality, Telesales and general office administration but none of these have challenged me as much as Financial Services. I feel grateful to have been offered the opportunity to work within the Shore Financial Planning Team as their main ethos centres around excellent customer care and satisfaction. This is something which I believe makes a wonderful business environment, both for the client and the office team. I am delighted to get first-hand experience and knowledge working alongside people who have been in the industry for years. Finally, I am a huge animal (especially dog) lover so working in an office that has a resident dog is a bonus! “Sian Ripley (Administrator)
“After graduating from Plymouth University with a degree in Economics, I was delighted to be offered the opportunity to return to SFP following on from a successful internship year that took place with the company in 2016/17. Following that experience, I discovered I had gained a new edge as I found myself with a new and improved work ethic, allowing me to increase my productivity levels in my last year of university. My newly found motivation and refreshed way of working was fostered by the amazing SFP team who always set a high standard, whilst working relentlessly to put clients first.
I am now faced with new challenges within my role at the firm, and hope to continue adapting to the day to day operations the company requires to run as smoothly as it does. I very much value the ethos within the company which strives for customer satisfaction more than anything. I also admire the sense of community created for the staff in our offices – making everyday a pleasure!”Wuraola Idris (Receptionist/Administrator)
“I always try to get the door when the buzzer sounds, but it is never for me. My duties are to bark loudly at delivery guys and root around everyone’s bins. Oh, and sleeping.
I love working with my colleagues here because I regard all of them as my pals and chums, and when we play games together I win a lot. I don’t add much value to the business to be honest but don’t think anyone has noticed yet.
Out of work most of my interests are the same as in work, a bit like the top dogs here really.”Splash (Office Dogsbody)
