The new website, which launched last week, aims to be a comprehensive source of information on how to enter the IFA profession and how advisers can develop their careers once in the industry.
The career section will include a job search section enabling advisers to search for new jobs or look for new employees. The service is part of a complete revamp of its website, including a consumer section which promotes the value of advice and explains different types of advice.
The site has an events calendar detailing both Aifa’s planned events and those of associate and affiliate members. The site also gives members the opportunity to host microsite and campaign update pages detailing the launch of new services they provide to IFAs.The trade body has inclu-ded a new “top 10 current issues” section providing information on important IFA news.
Director general Chris Cummings says: “We have also introduced an extended graduate career section, with not only information on how to enter and develop in the profession but also a job search section so new people can find positions in IFA firms.
“You can search for jobs or look for new employees using the Jobs On-Line section so when looking for a paraplanner or a new adviser, this could be a useful place to start to promote a vacancy.”
